So, on the 13th Feb 2014 this year I stepped onto the red carpet and attended the premiere of the first feature film I produced - 50 Kisses.
We describe 50 Kisses as the first crowdsourced feature film.
We sourced 50 scripts - all containing a kiss and set on Valentine's Day - from an entry pile of nearly 2000. Then we opened these scripts up to be made by filmmakers around the world.
Around 130 entries later, and we were ready to start stitching the film together into a feature.
It was an amazing adventure for me. One hell of a learning experience. And bad double chin photo of me and my other half aside, it was a career affirming evening to be on the red carpet and celebrating the feat of human engineering that was 50 Kisses.
Well done to all involved. Especially well done to Judy, Maureen and Chris who put on a great evening of entertainment and celebration at the Genesis for the 50 Kisses gang. Kudos!
