These are amazing words to write! Finally, we have completed the film. After three long years and a great deal of hard work, it is done. That’s a fantastic feeling.
This week we finished the on line with Des Murray and the Sound Mix with Nas Pardesh and George Foulgham at Molinare. Colin Pons, our Producer joined me yesterday to watch and sign off the film and we’re absolutely delighted with the final outcome.
The lovely Molinare team came in with lots of fizz and cake for a celebration at the end. The sound team were joined by Tom Rogers, Sales Exec and Sarah Kinsella our Post Production Supervisor. Molinare have been wonderful to work with, what a lovely bunch of people and a great place to work. They have made a superb job of the post production on Still Loved.
So we still have many months of hard work ahead now the film is finished. Marketing, distribution and outreach. We also have to make a shorter TV version and a trailer. We need to do submissions to film festivals, poster, DVD extras etc. So our work is not yet over. But it’s a huge landmark to have got this far and completed the actual film.
Enormous thanks to every single person that has worked on the film or supported us in any way, that’s a very long list as we’ve had so much help from many fantastic people.
I look forward to announcing our premiere soon!

Things are progressing well with the Women in Film and TV Mentoring Scheme that our Director Debbie Howard is currently part of.
Every other week there are incredibly inspiring talks given by the other mentees on the scheme. So far we’ve covered working as a stunt women with Amanda Foster, writer multidimensional female characters with Adeela Sharif Antunes, Motion Graphics with Allison Brownmoore, how a DoP prepares for business with Audrey Aquilina, crowd funding with Lisa Francesca Nand and writing three act structure for thriller with Lotus Hannon. Lots more to come.
Debbie has begun meeting with her mentor Beadie Finzi from Britdoc, who’s advice and guidance is proving to be incredibly beneficial. Beadie’s wealth of knowledge about documentary is just what Debbie needs at this stage of making Still Loved.
As well as the regular meetings and talks there are extra sessions, from looking at improving CV’s to speed dating and networking sessions with other industry professionals. As part of the scheme Debbie is also meeting with Nicola Shindler of RED in a few weeks time in Manchester.
Led by Nicola Lees – TV Mole the sessions are dynamic and hugely productive and have already had a big impact on the mentees careers.
Our Director Debbie Howard has begun her mentoring scheme at Women in Film and TV UK, in London last week.
The scheme kicked off in style with a full day of getting to know the other 19 mentees and Nicola Lees who runs the scheme. It was a very inspiring day!
Debbie’s mentor for the next six months is Beadie Finzi from Britdoc, they have their first one-to-one session next week.

Debbie is delighted to be part of the mentoring scheme and is very much looking forward to being pushed to the next level in her career.
I’m absolutely thrilled to say that I’ve been selected for the prestigiuos Women in Film and Television UK Mentoring Scheme 2014.
This sounds like a very exiting opportunity and will begin in January 2014 through to the summer. I’ll be working with 20 other dynamic female mentees, taking part in a great program in London. I’m not sure yet who my mentor will be, but trust it will be someone with great expertise and skill who can help me develop my own work.
This has come at a great time whilst completing Still Born, Still Loved, our feature documentary about stillbirth and baby loss.
A big thank you Nicola Lees and all those at Women in Film and Television for selecting me for this program. I can’t wait to get started!
