Find someone interested in filming your work… check!
Hope that that someone visualises your characters and situations through a similarly-shaped set of lenses… check!
Cast a furtive glance to the heavens and pray that your box-checking someone also has the drive and ambition to attract and mobilise additional talent to roll up collective filmmaking sleeves and actually make a flippin’ film… CHECK!
We count ourselves very lucky to have met Louise who continues to impress us with an unerring sense of ‘mission’ and her capacity to work quickly and efficiently towards a quality end product: it’s why we’re happy to write for her.
Two of our scripts have featured on Louise’s #oneshortfilmamonth project with a third slated for later in the year. She recently posted a blog about her methods and motivations which is well worth a look:

Continuing our involvement with director Louise C. Galizia’s #oneshortamonth film project, narrative microshort Looking Up was released on 4th May.
We’ve been extremely fortunate in the past to work with directors who haven’t been too phased by the prospect of having their writers on set: more often than not, we’re about as welcome as a queue of upset stomachs outside a music festival portaloo. Looking Up was no exception and it afforded us another opportunity to marvel at the patience and dedication of genuinely talented collaborators who braved the bitterest of bitter winter chills to laugh in the face of February and nail this simple but touching little piece about… well, looking up.
Huge thanks to cast Georgina Blackledge and Vangelis Christodoulou for risking terminal bum numbness through every spot-on take, DOP Laura Yates and producer Alice Ryan for their focus and get-on-with-it-regardlessness and of course director Louise for continuing to find something in our work worth putting the effort in for. Even if it requires a duffel coat.
