So what about the Oscar targeted film,
Happy Birthday?

Well the film hasn't gone away! And I haven't run off with the kitty.

To date, some £7,000 has been donated. I was hoping to add to this, bringing the total to £18,000.

But the current financial climate is proving too tough to forge ahead with this project AT THE PRESENT TIME. However, rest assured, we will pick up the film once recession eases and more funding becomes available.

Again, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed so far to
Happy Birthday. Your money is safe.

But given the unforeseen recession and it's lingering effects, I want to move ahead with a different plan.

Happy Birthday on hold, until raising enough money becomes more feasible, I am developing a shorter script which will cost less to make. I will let you know more about the story as soon as I can.

It will help me to know that you are happy for me to spend the money raised so far (for Happy Birthday)
on this new film, rather than on it's originally intended purpose. In this way, we can get on and make a film sooner rather than later. Please let me know if you have any reservations about this, and I will respond.

Thank you for your patience with this project. It is a painful aspect of all filmmaking: long waiting times before anything happens. But we will get there!

And the good news about
Gary and Gail is a small beginning, but a result non the less!
