The Londoners screening

I'm very pleased to report that last night was an utter triumph. It was the big screening of the Thousand Londoners films, over in the Greenwich Picturehouse. To be honest, never having been into the Picturehouse before, I didn't quite know what to expect. Once there, though, I met Matt and my other friends from Lifeline. I was taken down to a private screening room in the basement, where about seven or eight of the Londoners films were shown to an audience of about thirty people. My film, Matt, was shown last, hopefully because the guys thought it would be a nice climactic point to finish at. Before that, though, some very, very powerful short films had been shown about people from all walks of life, together making up a snapshot of life in London.

After that came the question and answer session. Matt, myself and the other filmmakers went to the front of the room and answered questions from the audience. They seemed very impressed by what they had seen, and were keen to ask questions. I gave one or two answers, and left the rest to the others; but nonetheless I couldn't help but feel very important. Was this what Steven Spielberg or Peter Jackson feel like? It was fascinating and thrilling, and above all filled me with a desire to do more.

This project gave me my first small taste of proper filmmaking. It is an artform I love. What happened last night filled me with confidence and enthusiasm, for it was just the start. It's now time to move it forward and go on to even bigger things.
