Did You Know?


The origin of the project began with Kris Smith and Dan Burman having the idea to make a feature with Smith being the director and Burman the lead. However there were several plot ideas and scripts handed in their way before this medical screenplay was written. One being a street crime drama, the other being a boxing film. Eventually it turned out to be this script. See more »

A thrill-ride with emotion

I was lucky enough to witness this feature on the Norwich University of the Arts MA degree showing about a week ago, and I was incredibly impressed by it's sheer amount of detail, it's storytelling and great portrayal of death told on screen. I'd like to think of the film as a journey of self-discovery, finding out who you are and what you mean to people. It sets out such a horrific way of showing terminal illnesses in the UK and that's something not many people are daring to express at the moment, such as Matt's violent coughing, the cancer patients' ill look in bed and the icey-cold look of hospitals. I myself took the film very personal due to the fact that a loved one passed away to cancer and this film really captured my emotions in my own experiences in life, dealing with knowing that someone I cared about is going to die in only a matter of weeks. I think people can identify and relate to that very well and people's responses will be great. What "I'm Still Here" really did was a huge achievement in my eyes was that I actually cared about the characters, every single one of them. It was because they were simply realistic and convincing in their performances and you can easily sympathise with them (including the ones that make mistakes such as Ben) and I seriously didn't want any of this to go away during the two hours of watching this. But like always, all good things might come to an end. Not only is it a story based on life and death, but it's a story on redemption. To change the errors of your ways because life is too short and we should make everything matter. Leaving a mark in the world in which the characters live in was integral to the plot and Matt sure does that in the finale. All I can say is watch it and enjoy it for what it is. As much as it is depressing, you will never see another film quite like this. Effective and enjoyable till the very end.
