This is a film about filmmakers in between making films on the weekend. An urban romantic triangle set in the world of black filmmakers. An ensemble comedy of pathetic proportions. Written by Chase Johnston-Lynch

Brilliantly awful
7 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Finally, someone whom has seen the film and slightly understood it. I'm gonna assume this person, leyla attended the London screening of my film. Yes, I'm the writer/director of this guerrilla made mess.

Unfortunately the Q&A was interrupted by a 40 ft elephant so I was not able to explain myself.

Love is indeed confusing. And sometimes people can get lost in that. The main character was like any one of us whom find themselves chasing straws everyday because of the tethers of hope we desperately seek as unrequited lovers. Does she like me? Will she love me tomorrow? If I stay just one more day... But by doing this, we miss the opportunities of love all around us by any, and I do mean anybody else.

Now, making a film for less than a bean is gonna have its problems. I'm not gonna discuss accents, although I thought Mississippi scousers was funny. But I would ask Leyla, if the person would grace my presence again to answer whether they thought the lighting and composition of shots were worth the time. What about the urban soundtrack. A lot goes into making a full length feature film.

I'm not gonna defend my film at the end of the day because I'm glad I made it. i know it has its plot holes. I know the accent route was wrong but I wanted to do a story that I felt was topical and undone.

Lastly, I also felt the female characters were indeed fleshed out. We saw into their minds and felt their pain of loneliness. True, they were promiscuous characters dealing with past abuse and uncertain vanities but I thought they were also given their due. The girl did throw the director out of her house.

Not like I had that experience and all.

Thank you for your viewpoint.
