Dimensions screens in Nantes, France

We’re very excited to be screening in Nantes, France, three times this week.  Sloane and Ant will be there for the first two screenings and will take part in a Q&A after each.  You can find times etc. here… http://britannique.univercine-nantes.org/programmation/films/

BTW Harry (our dog) seemed to have snuck into the above photo, of the night-time garden party. He’s always stealing the limelight.

Upcoming screenings…

We’re excited to tell you about a couple of upcoming screenings – in the UK and France!

Dimensions will screen on November 11th as part of the Keswick Film Club’s Gala Night in the Lake District. Sloane and Ant will be there to answer questions after the screening, and chat about films and filmmaking in general. The Lake District is stunningly beautiful, so we’re really pleased to have been invited.

On December 5th, Dimensions will be the opening night film of the Nantes British Film Festival (Nantes, France). Sloane and Ant will again be in attendance. Evidently Nantes has some fantastic outdoor markets, so we’re looking forward to exploring!

Dimensions wins FIFTH Best Film award!

It’s been a roller-coaster couple of weeks – first, the awards for Best Film and Best Screenplay in Spain, and now another win at the Crystal Palace International Film Festival.  It’s always fantastic to be honoured at these events – we only wish we could have the entire cast and crew with us!

Thanks as always for all of your support.

Best,

Ant and Sloane

If you have friends or family in the area, who you think would enjoy the film, please tell them about it!  We don’t have a big (any) advertising budget – all the press, etc., we’ve had has been via word-of-mouth…and that is down to all of you lovely people!

Thank you all so much for your help and support.

Best,

Time Flies

Sloane and Henry Lloyd-Hughes after completing the very first scene.

A year ago today, we started principle photography on Dimensions and, as we sit in the edit bay putting the last touches to the trailer, we thought it would be nice to share a few images from that day.

Breakfast eaten and ready for the very first shot.

Sloane and Chris (Burgess, First A.D.) decided it would make sense to have an easy first day – just some coming and going shots across the courtyard plus a little bit along the river bank.  It made sense to start with a light day – it would give us time to iron out any tech issues should they arise, etc.  As it turned out, it all went very well (our tech tests in pre-prod stood us in good stead).

This is Chris calling ‘Roll Camera’ on the first shot of the film.  We rolled on schedule – 8am sharp.

We did have a little rain (a drizzle, really) – the weather was the one thing that was problematic, here and there, throughout the shoot.  Of course, this is England so erratic weather (and a preoccupation with it) is part of the culture.  The rain meant we had to continuously rework the schedule and move inside much earlier then anticipated.

Sloane calls ‘Action’ on the first shot.

Okay, back to work.  Stay tuned for the upcoming trailer!

Alex Turner with the clapper board.  You can tell we had an early start – his eyes are closed.
