Today I logged in to give a little update and something hit me…It’s been over a year since I last updated this site! No excuses, that’s a massive faux pas on my behalf. I had intended to post something in September basically saying that due to my final year studies I’d not be able to post much until M ay time. Due to the busy schedule both with my studies and with working on various films time has just ticked on by.
With that out of the way, lets talk about the current state of affairs.
Throughout 2016 and even up until this date I’ve mainly been working as a Lighting Technician and Gaffer on a variety of different films. With that, I’ve been focusing on building contacts in that area so when I finally graduate I have a semi-sustainable income with any luck. Sadly, that meant the dreams of making films on a regular basis kind of got pushed to the side. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking about it.
As I get closer to my final assignments being handed in, its time that I put the house back into order so to speak.
2017 will see two things from the Mutt. The first is a relaunch. The branding, logos and what not will stay the same but new projects will go into production and old ones will be finished. The second is the launching of a new company (a division of Scruffy Mutt) that focuses solely on lighting and set/prop design. As I get work doing these things, it seems daft not to try and capitalise on that. The grand idea is to get money from the lighting company that I can then put into the production of films that will be published under Scruffy Mutt Productions.
This can mean nothing but good things for Scruffy Mutt Productions.
When I’m in a position to reveal more, I will do. As it stands at the moment I’m hoping to post an update at least once a month. The main focus at the moment is to update the YouTube channel and get the films I’ve made between Jan 2016 to now published (Especially Broken, my stop motion film). I’m also considering posting my entire back catalogue of Uni films, mainly to show how much I’ve grown as a filmmaker over the years.
As ever, thanks for reading.
