All News that's Fit to Blog - An Update

Louise Milne's The Druids: Travels in Deep England, featuring various druids, pagans, authors and cavers, is nearing the end of postproduction.

Louise and Sean have collaborated on a second film (after the acclaimed Lanterna Magicka: Bill Douglas & the Secret History of Cinema), titled A Boat Retold. This is a short documentary about boats, stories and sea routes and features author, poet, sailor and storyteller Ian Stephen and author Robert Macfarlane. The film was shot on and around Lewis and the Shiants in August, and is due to premiere at an Lanntair in Stornoway in March 2011, where it will be screened as part of an exhibition featuring work by Ian. The film is now in postproduction.

Finally, Sean's feature film, Folie à Deux is once again in postproduction after a lengthy lay-off due to adverse astrological alignments. The film's sound design and mix are in the very capable hands of Julien Pearly and Jake Clark-Darby. We hope the film will be finished in early 2011.
