'One Year Later' - Short Film Auditions

We ran auditions for the forthcoming short film 'One Year Later' today.

The session ran for five hours with seventeen actors scheduled to read for the part of 'younger brother'.

As always, interesting to see the various styles and interpretations - and my job was to document the day's activities in between sessions.

The actors will hear later this week who was successful, but it will be a tough choice with so many excellent performances.

 We are shooting the film over a weekend in April, but there is much work to be done in preparation.

 The members of the team available today all bonded well with good fun and banter throughout.

 So it's looking like we will have a good cast and crew - a major boost for the project.

Greenock - Belville Street High Flats Demolition

The Belville Street high flats in Greenock were demolished at 02:30 this morning.

On a very cold morning quite a few gathered to watch the spectacle - and they were not to be disappointed.

Right on time the first bang, then a delay, then another bang, and the flats crumbled to the ground.

Starting to Crumble

Well on Their Way Down

 Almost Gone

Only the Dust and Rubble Remain
