1. 8MM:

The 8mm app is worth more than the price of £1.49,  with ‘Searching For Sugar Man’ being nominated for an Oscar with the help of this cheap-as-chips filming app. This apps has no limitations, you can change the colours from a gritty 1920’s look to indigo and siena tones. In simple terms, it is an upgraded Instagram for filming and it takes live camera videos but you can also upload older videos. It makes filming look effortlessly cool without the hard work of editing!

 

2. PHOSTER:

Phoster is brilliant for both work and play. You can chose from various bright templates with a fantastic collection of shapes, patterns, lettering and you have the ability to import your own photos for an additional touch. After you’ve created your ‘phoster’ you can select filters … Read More »

 How did the shoot go for you?

Was cautious of Liam’s reputation- he doesn’t suffer fools I heard.

What will you take from the experience to the next shoot?

In the flesh he was fine- never judge a book by its cover

Mickey De Hara – Founder

16th May

2000 – 2006

A chance meeting with Guy Ritchie was the starting point for me. I had the stories and the language in my head but as I have dyslexia I never believed I could write.
I had a colourful upbringing, and even from an early age I didn’t always attend school.
Guy became my mentor. Shoved a laptop in front of me, loaded the ‘Movie Magic’ software and told me to write.
I worked with him on the scripts for ‘Snatch’ and ‘RocknRolla’, even getting my face on screen. Meeting Guy was my lucky break and the rest (admittedly with a short interruption at Her Majesty’s Pleasure) is history.

2010

I went away for a while, C Wing – Brixton Prison in fact. Not something I’m proud of, especially as it was for something I didn’t do!

But it’s funny how things happen. I was a … Read More »



Education

Posted by developerin Latest, News. No Comments

16th May

At Films4Life we firmly believe that a great school education is invaluable to all and that hard work, the right attitude and sound advice given at an early stage can lead to success in whatever you choose to do.

What we also firmly believe is that a given set of economic circumstances or a wrong path taken in life, for whatever reason, should not completely define your future.

To paraphrase one of our key supporters, Tony Jordan, “as a country I don’t think we serve our young people well, the future is in their hands yet we leave them on the periphery of society, without work and often without hope. As a society we should hang our heads in shame…”

The Films4Life ethos is simple. To inspire, motivate, educate, encourage and nurture an exciting new generation of young, talented British filmmakers and to … Read More »
