I’m very pleased to announce that The Last Man on the Moon has just been released nationwide in the US
Death of a Gentleman, the feature doc I’ve been editing about the demise of Test Cricket, has had two ‘premier’s over the last ten days. On July 24th screened as the closing night film at the London Indian Film Festival,
and then on Monday 27th it had its official premiere at the Picturehouse in Shaftesbury Avenue. The picture below shows Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber, the films directors. The response to both screenings was very positive!
Jacqui and David Morris’ film about newspaper editor Sir Harold Evans, has won the Special Grand Jury prize at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival. I edited this film in my cutting room at Silverglade, over a period of a year, and there were times when it felt like we’d never be able to finish it. With Post Production at both Molinare and Silverglade, we finally got it done. So it’s incredibly satisfying for the film to be recognised for what it is – a great story about a really important subject.
From the DocFest website:
On behalf of the Special Jury Dawn Porter said: “We unanimously found this film to be an elegant examination of complex themes. We appreciated his film on all levels – it is a work approached with relevance and rigor, a historical film that feels contemporary and engaging, blossoms like a novel, and is surprising when least expected, epic in its scope, traversing decades and exploring big themes while revealing intimate details.” For the jury, Attacking the Devil is “a call to arms inviting us to examine our past as it celebrates and reminds us of the critical value of journalism.”

I’m very pleased to say that McCullin, the film I’ve edited about the legendary photographer, has been given two BAFTA nominations. The categories are for Best Documentary and Best Newcomer, for Jacqui and David Morris, the film’s directors. So it’s fingers crossed for the big day…
