Glos Voices write: We wanted to highlight the difficulties that so many of our are members experience with making new friendships and dating. We also wanted to illustrate and raise awareness of the loneliness and isolation that people so often feel. So we decided to make a film. With a limited budget of £250…! No professional gear, ah! We shot and edited this short film in 3 weeks – hurray! We hope you like it.
Emma James, local film and tv producer, who runs the Cotswold Film and Location Office (credits include Cider with Rosie and The Casual Vacancy) and also a judge in the Awards said: “A wonderfully filmed piece following our central character on this intimate search for love proving there might just be someone for everyone. The street scenes through Stroud and recognisable locations made this especially likeable for me and gave it that ‘home grown’ appeal and Tim Heavens’ role of central character Scott was utterly charming. This bought a smile to my face”.
Stroud Community TV judge David Pearson, of award-winning Arturi films, Oscar Shortlisted, BAFTA Nominated and winner of British Independent Film Award for feature film Mugabe and The White African, said: “A poignant insight into,and from, a group of people who are rarely heard and deserve more understanding and appreciation by the rest of us”.
