ILSON 2060 Production
Well I did it I directed my first ever film which is another great achievement. It took us all in all about 4 hours with a lunch in between with lots of people asking me and the crew what it was we were all doing. Finally a vision of mine turned into a film and well ok its only going to be a short film but in just a few minutes will be some intense madness believe me.
The film Ilson 2060 will be dark and unsettling to some and is not intended for a wide screen audience. I have always been more a cult film appreciator than a mainstream blockbuster viewer well I tell a lie I love watching big budget films with lots special effects but as an art form I much prefer indie low budget films.
James the star of the film playing the agent presented an awesome performance and I was vile to him on set because it shattered him and created a realistic look. I made him run about over and over again towards the end of film to show that deflated confidence and it worked well.
You might be just able to see me in the middle of the picture directing aggressively making sure it all looked good and worked. I had to remember in my head all of the shots which was easy even though I had to shoot the film back to front due to casting time. The weather was nice and gloomy on the day which was perfect and I hope we captured the steam coming out of the chippy. Now its on to post production and I can't wait I love film editing.

Ilson 2006 film project
I have always loved watching films especially horror films. One of my favorite films being Eraserhead and the time as now come for me to move closer towards producing my own film and I am currently in the phase of creating a story board for this exciting short art movie. If it goes well I would enjoy creating a full length movie extending this. Please see the poster below
Quick Poster for my up and coming film
What the film is about
Story so far, An agent as been sent 50 years into the future by the government to get the answer to many questions. He goes there unprepared because as most people quote today things will never get any better they will just get worse.
Ilkeston as even had its name changed to Ilson a name used quite often today. Drugs are that common that they have altered the genetic makeup of the brain and mind to the point that people are now all psychopathic paranoid monsters. Not only that but towns and cities are mostly barren and people even the young have been restricted to there homes through fear of violent confrontation.
Tesso the new name for a supermarket business now control the streets and have sent out there gangs to destroy the streets and rival shops. Tesso vans are everywhere delivering and will shot anyone in sight.
Females are now the most dominant of the sexes and have even become the most dangerous physically and mentally and stand back shouting and encouraging the men to attack others. The weak minded men will do anything to please the female and I mean anything.
The films Production and project
I'm apart of a new exciting project that includes many members and we are each going to produce a film that we want. I have just found out that we have access to thousands of pounds worth of video recording equipment from steady cams to a expensive cannon video camera and I am very excited. I will be working alongside Thomas Hall a professional multimedia artist.
Graphic Design Job Hunt
I have recently been applying for jobs as a graphic designer again as I think its about time I got myself back into work. Its not going to easy though with me having so much of a work gap but I can explain to the prospective employers that I have had valid reasons for unemployment. I need to do something with my life so that my creative mind can offer people so much. I have learned that it is a good thing to share ones creativity with the world.
Well I am off to a great start so far so many great things seem to keep happening around me and my life is going somewhere now.
