February Facts! / by Matt Smolen

It has been a very busy time for Balloon Tree Productions. It was October since we posted something here and since then we’ve been hard at work producing some great work!

The big thing for us has been The List. We had our second block of shooting in the middle of October and the preview screening on the 1st of February this year. So many people put their time, effort and lives into making this the best it could be – and we’re immensely proud of what we have to show. The screening went down a treat and now we get to focus on procuring some funding to finish the film off! Here’s a link to the trailer:

 

We’ve also started working really closely with actors in shooting scenes specifically for showreels. It’s not always easy to get a role that shows your diversity – especially if you’re playing against type, so shooting scenes specifically for that reason makes so much sense! I don’t know why more people aren’t doing it! Check out one of Josh Futcher’s scenes here.

 

There’s plenty still on the horizon, and we’re going to endeavour to keep this updated as much as possible. If not, it means we’re working hard so don’t worry about us too much! In the meantime, we updated our showreel - so check it out and let us know what you think!
