Excellent example of quality, guerrilla-style film-making
I organise one of the most successful monthly film screenings in the UK and we've shown several of Mark Jay's films over the years, all of which were fine examples of imaginative, well-crafted film-making on a budget.
'You're Gonna Wake Up One Morning' was the first of Mark's films we screened and was so popular with our audience that we had to show it again a few months later. Although made on a shoe-string budget, it has the look of something much more expensive and uses exterior locations particularly well. The film is well-plotted with interesting characters and a great performance from the actor playing a local drug-dealer. Mark obviously has a good ear for dialogue and a sure hand with actors.
Personally, I enjoyed the film a great deal and was impressed by its pace, editing and overall feel. Great soundtrack, too!
