It all began at the crack of dawn. I fell into the shower at 5AM, dressed in the dark and headed over to the BBC Radio studios. After what was almost definitely (and very appropriately) the fastest radio interview ever (which you can listen to at the bottom of this post), we cruised to Fastest Film Ever HQ and sat around waiting for our nine o’clock start.
With a full house of future film-makers, respectable observers, our web nerds from Plastic Duck Armada and the documentary team, the clock struck nine and we started throwing ideas into the mix.
These ranged from a post-apocalyptic anti-establishment film set in a separatist camp, to a drama about roadside crosses and the stories behind them. We debated and pleaded our cases, we played devil’s advocate (not the movie, just the phrase) and we drank coffee. At the end of it all, we settled on a concept.
I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s set at night and will probably be a bit funny.
That is all.
Watch this space and we start fleshing out the plot, characters and storyline today.
Hopefully we’ll have a solid beat sheet by lunch today.
Wish us luck fellow patriots.
