End of the Year for "ABBIE"

Erin and I have had a really busy couple of months since finishing the final deliverables of “Abbie” for Metro Screen. Here’s a quick update on some of the things we’ve been up to:

On the 11th Nov: I jetted over to NZ to watch my first short film “Driven” screen at the Show Me Shorts Film festival.

On the 29th Nov: Erin and I spoke on the Metro Screen panel at the AFTRS foundation industry day. It was great to meet everyone who came in for a private interview with us afterwards.

On the 4th Dec: We had our cast, crew, friends and family screening of “Abbie” at the Tap Gallery on Oxford Street. The night was such a reward after all the hard work that went into “Abbie.” Thank you to everyone for coming and showing your support!

On the 5th Dec: We were very excited to hear that our fabulous editor, Fiona Strain won a prestigious ASE award for her work on the television series “Whatever! The Science of Teens.” She was also nominated for in the short film category for “Driven.”

On the 16th Dec: We began work on the trailer for “Abbie” – we hope to have this available for public use early 2011. We’ll update the blog again when it’s ready!

During all this time, Erin has been busily sending screeners to short film festivals all across the globe, so fingers crossed we can have a confirmed international premier for “Abbie” by mid 2011.

Don’t stress if you can’t wait that long to see the film again! Metro Screen is still to announce their screening of “Abbie” at the Chauvel Cinema – predicted to be in mid January. Keep checking the blog for more details.

Until then, Merry Christmas! & Happy New Year!
