Dancing Floor film update

So what’s been going on with the film?  After some successful previews of the pilot, we are now entering a new phase: finding finance for the feature film.  This means:

a crowdfunding campaign

a search for bigger investors

talking to Ffilm Cymru Wales

Jo Eliot (Hay Festival of British Cinema) and Roger Goodman (Llangollen Fringe festival) have joined me to help push this phase forwards.  It is great to have their support.  I am currently looking for someone to help me with the Crowdfunding campaign and other social media.  If you know someone, let me know.

We are planning a big event at Hay Castle on Wednesday September 9 to launch the campaign: there will be music, storytelling, info about the Mabinogion and about the film project, plus food and drink – and a showing of the fifteen-minute pilot film.  We want to invite our local community to get involved (not just in giving money!)- there will be plenty of opportunities for:

extras of all sorts, both Welsh-speaking and non

primary school children who like dancing

young people who want to learn about film

people with film-making or production skills

Please put the date in your diaries and come!  Tickets will be available (£5) from me nearer the time and at the door.

Meanwhile, I will be updating this blog more regularly and building a mailing list of interested people.
