Clockwork does the festival rounds

This year I was thrilled to have my movie selected to be shown at BitFilm. As far as I know it has played in cinemas in Hamburg, Berlin, and soon Tel Aviv. To be honest, that was my ambition as far as machinima goes, but sadly I wasn't able to be in Germany on the opening weekend as I was already away on holiday...

Last Friday I visited the Cambridge Film Festival in the UK. I was going up to see what movies were on offer, and because I knew BlackAce's film Daddy is Home was playing. What I didn't realise was that they were going to show Clockwork too! I was almost speechless when I found out. BTW, while in Cambridge I was able to interview a few interesting people - more on that in a later post.

Today I learned that Clockwork has also been selected to be shown at a new film festival called Atopic in Paris at the end of October. I had no idea when I made the movie that it would be so appreciated (although it's not everyone's cup of tea of course!)

The Atopic festival clashes with other arrangements I already had, (my mother is flying down from Scotland to visit), however thankfully we've managed to make a few changes which means that hopefully I'll be in Paris to see the screening!

(Anyone know of any other movies showing there?)

The big worry now is how I'm going to follow it up next year - Cloud Angel isn't really a candidate because it's probably not "arty" enough. Better get my creative trousers on!


  1. That is pretty exciting stuff! Clockwork is a great movie and well-deserving of the attention. Congratulations again!

  2. Congrats, IceAxe! I really would love to go, too, since "Saving Grace" has been selected also, but I won't be able to. :(
    You have to tell us everything!!!
