31 Oct Producing, directing and writing
I was taught by the wonderful director and producer Sean McNamara to always have the following in the credits “an Elizabeth Blake-Thomas film” this enables me to show I have been part of all of the processes. Writing or creating the story, followed by putting everyone and everything in place including finding the funding, allowing me to then be a creative and direct the project. I will have taken all of these roles on in my four features. The one I love more than anything is the directing, but I love directing my own work at the moment. So even if I can’t complete the whole script I can create the idea and work with someone who can help put that idea in final draft format for me. Producing is a bit like creating a dinner party. Which is great fun but then when it gets to eating the food sometimes you’re too tired or too full with trying it to enjoy it fully. Which is why I’m creating other producers who can support me in my creative ventures. I really love writing. To the point where it is addictive. I visualize ideas and scenes, I come up with stories. I love writing my blog, my status updates and my scripts/stories. If I can continue to create and work as I have done this year for the next five years. I will be a very apply bunny.
