“…it was hell. A very painful film to make with hard lessons learned, but a necessary one that has made me a stronger filmmaker. Film can be fun when all the elements are singing in harmony and elevating the material. That’s when its magic. A lot comes down to the choices you make, but ultimately it’s all about learning. You learn from your failures, not your successes.”
That is such a good question and a tough one. I would honestly be happiest in a small tight knit crew, where we each cared equally about achieving something special, but that’s not always possible or practical. All I know is I love telling stories and I’m going to continue doing so in whatever capacity I’m able.
I speak to young filmmaker Arran Bradstock about how he got into film, where he’s going with it and his latest short ‘The Long Haul‘.
