Autumn Planning Meeting 14/10/2008


ParkLife: ParkLife is hurtlin' on like a pack of hell dogs, with three produced and three more in pre-production. Decided it would be a good idea for the producer of each installment to put up a short debrief post here on the discussion board, describing roughly the process they adopted, logistical hurdles and how they could be overcome and general useful information and contacts for those producing future intsallments. It's all about payin' it forward! (The sentiment, not the film, there's no need to relive that).

Dance Puppets Dance!: A short film specifically for Matt Owen's myriad freaky deaky puppets! Self Collective's Writers' Circle are currently collaborating on the script and aim to complete a shooting draft in time for New Year after which pre-production will commence! If you are interested in any aspect of this project hit me on


ParkLife Screening:
Working date Nov 6th this year. A screening of all the ParkLife's thus far twinned with a general planning meeting for other collective projects (note that this is for collective, not individual projects, see definition on toward the bottom of the page) e.g. another 48 hour project akin to this year's Sleepless in Peckham.

SelfCollective Christmas Party!: Currently scheduled for December 5th. A screening of this year's work and a ruddy great knees up to boot! Currently looking for interesting local venues with projecting facilities, preferably free or dirt cheap. If you have any suggestions, or even better wanna help out, hit me on

Speakers Sessions/Skill shares:It appears SELFC has connections to a fair few people in t'industry who might be prepared to give a talk, instructional or partake of an informal Q & A sesh to aid us in our myriad endeavours and of this naturally we approve. Only problem being we shouldn't wish to bother said industry people if we cannot guarantee attendance in some reasonable measure. And guaranteeing attendance problematic at the best of times. Erego, should you be interested in attending/organising such activities please let us know so we could ascertain if this is a thing worth pursuing.

Other Business:

Formation of a P&P/Rep Group:
Selfc has actually been asked to attend a number of local events (e.g. Lewisham's Peoples Day, Elefest) to give us the chance to represent ourselves in the community. We've had to decline a lot of these so far due to there being not enough people free and/or willing on the given days. What is a cryin' shame as we are missin' a trick to find new members, discover opportunities and generally spread the love. Thereby we propose the formation of a P&P group who consider themselves the approachable sort to attend said events and 'represent'. Email Witchger on the subject at

That be all for now. Laters!
