Hello, hope you are all well! Very pleased to reveal that we held a small preview screening of Love & Other Chairs earlier this week to guage responses to the film and we were delighted with how it went down. Unfortunately we weren't able to send out a mass invite for this event as we only just finished the film on the morning of the screening and didn't want to get people's hopes up in case we didn't complete it in time.
It is ready now though (bar a small music changed) and we're now at the stage when we're happy to begin sending the film to festivals. We can't wait for you to see it. In the meantime we'll be looking to find a way to screen the film publicly for backers who wish to attend and have this option as part of their perk. This will mark an 'official' premiere as a private screening, although we could have some festival screenings which could become a premiere. We'll also be sending a private screener out to those backers who qualify for this too. Hope those who got them enjoyed their Digital Development Packs.
Stay tuned for more news on the film's progress and we look forward to many of you seeing the film soon!
Director, Love & Other Chairs
Hello everyone! We're getting closer now to completion of work on Love & Other Chairs with the edit and sound mix now complete and working extremely well. Post-production is now focusing on the soundtrack being scored by the award winning composer Jonathan Armandary who reteams with YSP Media after previous success on our last short film Caught in the Headlights. We're excited to see what he brings to the table and we already have some strong ideas about the direction of the score. Colour grading of the film is also due to begin shortly and we're looking forward to seeing this come to life.
Our aim is to have the film screen at the end of November pending post-production completion and we'll also be distributing private links to the film online to those backers who have this as part of their perks. We've not yet produced a trailer as planned as we're focused 100% on completing the film and we hope that this will come later.
Responses to test screenings of the near complete film have been very positive and this has given us great confidence. We can't wait to show you the final film which we intend to start sending to festivals before the end of the year.

I look forward to sharing more news from the film soon, thank you all again for backing Love & Other Chairs and making this possible!

Hi folks, hope you’re well! It’s been a while since the last update from me so I thought I’d just bring you up to speed on where we are.
The edit on the film has just begun now with our award nominated editor Silvia de Abreu hard at work on the film in Nottingham. We’re also beginning to get ideas for the soundtrack together with some exciting news on this due in the coming weeks and months.
I’ve also just uploaded some stills to our Facebook page so feel free to head over and take a look at those https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.63832...
Thanks for your patience regarding perks too, we are getting all of these together and awaiting the 35mm development and final docs for the digital packs before sending these out. We’ve also got some thank you videos to do so stay tuned for those.
In related news for anyone local to Derby, the city’s ID Fest is taking place from May 9th to May 12th and I’d encourage everyone who can to attend. There’s a brilliant line up and some amazing special guests too. Plus, for anyone interested in making short films, some of our team will be on a panel discussing the form and our experiences over the years. I might even be able to bring some Love & Other Chairs footage!
