Ok, so it’s been a while since I’ve blogged so let me update you.

My film The Park got into the Birds Eye View Film Festival! It’s run by a bunch of cool chicks that were really nice to me. They hooked me up with interviews on Colourful Radio and BBC London Radio where Jason Solomon said that Tight Jeans was the best short film of the decade! It was a lot of fun.

On the way to my last screening, I got a phone call from one of the organizers telling me that BBC news would like to interview me. I was like “great, I’ll be there.” When I got there, I saw the interviewer sitting at a table with a couple of the Birds Eye View organizers. As the woman had a bunch of notes, I assumed that the interview was gonna be tape recorded. I sat with them and answered a bunch of questions. Next minute I know, a camera man appears. It turns out that that was just the prep, it was gonna be filmed. I was like “cool.” I get a little nervous in front of the camera but I told myself that everything was gonna be okay. The news lady asked me questions about being a female filmmaker and the pros and cons attached to that. I think that my answers were okay but not perfect. When the news lady signed off, I asked her  if she would like to do it again. She looks at me perplexed before saying “Oh, you can’t that was LIVE.” I start shaking, one of the organizers holds me and says “I left a message on your phone saying it was live, I thought you knew.” I couldn’t believe it, I have the worst rep when it comes to bad language. All I could think of was thank God I didn’t swear! That would’ve been awful, can you imagine ? “Oh fuck, I messed up that line, can we do it again?” I properly lucked out on that one.
