Slightly surreal, but today was our last shoot day for Sleeping Rough… It was a tough shoot, sometimes taking some real bravery from cast and crew to pull through, but we did it, and we couldn’t have done it without every single member of the team, from van driver to make up artist, to actors. We’ve also been stunned by the support we’ve been given; from regular places such as Spring of Hope and the Wild Goose Café, but also from regular people we’ve met on the street; whilst filming, we’ve had so many people come up and ask what we’re doing, becoming genuinely interested in the project and the all round positive reaction from the public has been more than we could’ve asked for.
And of course, THANK YOU for supporting the project, we wouldn’t have got this far without the support of everyone that pledged to the Kickstarter to make this film happen.
Now the hard work starts… With festival deadlines looming, tours to shelters, schools and colleges, and of course cast and crew screenings to organise, we have to jump straight in with the edit. Wish us luck, and stay tuned for more updates!
