Film preview - Strathearn ArtSpace. Crieff. Scotland.
Film & Theatre reviewer.
GetMeLovedUp.com a laugh out loud internet comedy starring Margareta Mara, Sean Johnston, Susan Holoran and Paula Dunn - well they may have been the only names listed on the title page but there were many more stars on screen to be recognised in this locally produced film.
The Strathearn Artspace on Sunday evening was privileged to be the venue for the preview of local Author, Film maker George Carson's latest venture into the
world of film making. In front of an invited audience of locals from Comrie and
Crieff, many of them appearing in the film or connected to the project, were
there to enjoy a full showing of this labour of love on Sunday evening.
Presented under the backing of Blazebuster Productions, George explained to the audience the competition which small enterprises such as this project had to overcome in trying to compete in a multimillion-pound industry. Everything had to start from somewhere and it was hoped with enough publicity and support a finished product could be achieved to market through Film Festivals for distribution in the entertainment world.
GetMeLovedUp.com is a comedy film about dating and as inferred from the title the two lead characters, Sharon and Kevin, are persuaded by friends and family to join an internet dating site. Written and directed by George Carson there are some extremely funny and original situations arising out of the 'dates' with some amusing consequences. Encouraged by friends, they continue their quest until their separate paths finally come together.
However, it is not only the lonely couple who are seeking the 'pleasures' of life and all is finally revealed when Sharon and Kevin meet up by accident at the same wedding where some unexpected twists are revealed. Like 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' - romance however does blossom in the end!
Residents of the Strathearn area will be familiar with much of the location shots whether it be in the Deils Cauldron Restaurant in Comrie or The Lounge in Crieff, together with other parts of the area including the final scenes at Lochearnhead. Not only does this give the film a very homely touch but for the many locals who became 'extras' whether it be the local football team, diners in the restaurants or other well-known personalities they all added to the originality of the film.
Congratulations to all those involved and if the response from Sunday nights audience is anything to go by, George Carson, who has won several awards for his short films, will achieve great success with this his first feature film. We can look forward to hearing more about the film when it gets officially released to the world.
