Random bit of after effects for Shifting MS

Yes it’s low res and yes it’s short, but I think it’s kind of cool.

Big news about the funding

So, HUGE news, we got the £5000 of funding we needed! I really can’t convey here how excited I am. But, we do need more young MSers, or people that care for others with MS, whether it’s a parent, sibling or friend, get in touch. As long as you live in the UK and are between the ages of 16 and 25 then we would love to hear from you. Your travel and food expenses are all covered, and you get a weekend in BBC TV studios down in Norwich and also you take part in making an amazing film about MS (I should know, I’m directing it ;-)).

So, if you’re even the slightest bit interested then please get in touch at shiftingms at gmail dot com

It’s going to be awesome….

Did I tell you the one about the Lotus and the…

Hello again,

It’s been a while since I updated the blog and I can only apologise, but I do have some (really cool) news to bring you. Firstly, Gloria has managed to persuade Lotus to allow us to film in their factory. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Wow, filming in their factory, soooo cool’ </sarcasm>. But the isn’t the cool part (well, it sort of is, Lotus don’t normally allow filming in their factory, and they’ve just got into F1, so I can assure you, it IS very cool.) the cool part is what else she managed to get them to give us. When she explained what she was doing the filming for to the lovely PR lady, they said they would be able to offer us two hours around their test track in an Elise drive by one of their professional drivers, and to allow us to do a few tricks in it ourselves. For FREE. I couldn’t believe it when I she told me. The whole reason she spoke to Lotus brings me nicely onto my second bit of good news…

I was travelling home on the train a couple of months ago when an idea for the script popped into my head. I got on the phone to Gloria when I got home and explained what I was thinking and asked her if she could think of anywhere that we could use for shooting and left it at that. Less than a week later she came back with the news about the Lotus thing. I’ve now got the script out of my head and typed up, and we’re off to shoot the Lotus bit at the start of November with the other part to be shot at the start of January, with hopefully a finish date around the start of March (and before my Wedding).

I’m getting very excited, and I hope you are too.
