If you weren't tucked away on the top floor of Brighton's Joker pub last Thursday, soaking up Elliot Grove, the man behind both Raindance Film Festival and British Independent Film Awards, where the heck were you?
Oh, you missed a treat.
Our second Tilt Talks event, and the charismatic Canadian film producer took us on, dare I veer into reality show clichés, a journey.
It was a journey in the true sense of the word.
A journey is, in fact, the only way to describe Elliot’s fast-paced, anecdotally charged, insightful 99-minute film school, covering everything from creating your own cult and the two people that you must know to get your film sold, to why pointing on set is always a terrible, terrible idea, and a lot more in between.
Keep your eyes permanently open for snippets of Elliot during the next four months so that you, too, can have the knowledge to turn that script, collecting lint balls at the bottom of your bedside drawers, into a reality.
And of course, we hope to see you at the next one in a few months.
