I made a little film in California the last few days. Or shot one anyway. ...The next bit is a whole new chance to blow it. BUT what we got this week exceeded what I saw in my wildest imagination.

Thank you so much to all the friends, old and new, who gave up their time and energy to realise what was a nigh on impossible schedule.

The actors - @martinstarr, #billygardell, @carriganagain and the unbelievable lead actress who couldn’t say no if she’d wanted to.
