    Hi Rob! Looks like it will be lots of fun. Unfortunately, I do not think I will be able to make this one.
    btw, where do you source your films from?

      hi Tom, all over the place - people send them in, we get recommendations, we find films on the web etc. No one way really...

      yes, I figured as much. I host short film nights at 2 venues in London and saw on your list 1 or 2 films that had been sent my way but I was unable to screeen as I already had enough films. Glad to see u will be screening Cyrus' film. I received it too late to be shown at mine. I think it would make a great PSA on tele. If you have any films you think are especially noteworthy or simply like, by all means, send them my way! Always happy to show fims that deserve to be seen! [masked]

    Hiya we're looking for a technically minded person to take charge of the audio-visual aspects of SHOWREEL: making sure that the projection, sound quality etc. are up to scratch and things run smoothly. No pay but beer on the night, and could be good for someone who wants to get experience in this area for their CV. Email: [masked]
