August was one of the very first films to have a video tape made from the rushes negatives instead of the normal rush print. The video tapes were then edited into the finished film. As there was no rush print cutting guide the original negative was cut together using time codes that had been super imposed onto the rushes tape and converted by computer into cutting instructions.

I had never heard of this film about a year ago, which I feel quite ashamed about. It was directed by Anthony Hopkins and also starred the great man himself. The largely Welsh cast act well and couldn't be replaced by anything better. The plot focuses on the life of Hopkin's character, his small family (mother and niece), his boredom with life, his missed chances and his undying love for a visitors wife. This film has many fine moments which can invoke thought in you, especially when Hopkin's breaks down in tears at the end. I would recommend this film to anyone if not only for Hopkins but for the story itself.
