Your upcoming movie Bubbles - in a few words, what is it about?


In a nutshell, Bubbles is a bitter sweet short comedy drama, based in an urban setting in the UK. It tells the story of two young people: Max, a barista and Bubbles, a prostitute.


How did the project fall into place, and what drew you to it?


James Butler, our brilliant DoP and my co-producer on the film, had been developing the script for a while when he approached me about it. He and I had been looking for a project to work on together and I was also looking to produce a comedy, as a change of pace from the very serious films I’d made previously, and Bubbles fitted the bill perfectly.


Do talk about your writer Rhys Hicks and your director Zak Harney for a bit, and what are they bringing to the table?


James met Rhys in Australia last year, which is when Rhys showed him the script, as one of a number he had written. James saw its immense potential and with Rhys’s blessing then began to develop it back here in the UK. Zak and James had also been looking for a film project to work on as Director/DoP, having made several adverts together. Zak is a fiercely talented young director, who shares James's and my vision for the film. It’s great to have him on board. 


Anything you can tell us about the intended look and feel of Bubbles yet?


What’s different about Bubbles is how layered and nuanced it is considering its subject matter. It tells quite a big story for a 11 or 12 minute film and even though on the surface it is a gritty urban comedy, it has a real depth to it, including in terms of its characters. Our shared vision for the film is to make it look wonderful and very filmic, with visual references to films such as True Romance and The Place Beyond the Pines. This will act as a counterpoint to the grittiness of the subject matter, to result in what we hope will be a very original and entertaining film experience.  


Where do you see the major challenges on the production side of things?


As I have alluded to in the above answer, the film will have high production values, with a very striking and original feel to it. There are always challenges in making a short film, including on a small budget as we’re trying to do, so the major challenge we face lies in making Bubbles everything we want it to be, while working within the constraints of time and money. Everyone on Team Bubbles is top notch though, so I’m confident that the film will deliver fully on its potential.


Anything you can tell us about Bubbles' intended cast yet, and why exactly these people?


We are delighted to have our three very talented lead actors in place, after a very comprehensive and competitive audition process. Established British TV actress Crystal Leaity (Poldark, Mr. Selfridge, Endeavour) plays Tracy, while the other two roles are filled, respectively, by an up and coming actor and actress: Craig Beedim plays Max and Isobel Wolff is cast as the title character, Bubbles. Watching the three of them interact together in rehearsals sends shivers up and down your spine, it’s so magical. I can’t wait to see them in character on set and on film. We’re currently casting the supporting roles, a process which has, like that for the lead roles, again generated lots of interest and applications.


Bubbles is as of now still in its fundraising stages, right? So what can you tell us about your campaign?


That’s right. We’re currently raising funds for the project through Kickstarter and are getting to the nail-biting stage of completing finance through that and other routes. To help with this, we’ve made a promotional trailer for the film, which features many of the people involved in making it, including Zak, James, myself and other members of the team. We’ve also got some really good rewards for Kickstarter investors and are providing regular updates on the film’s development and pre-production on my Facebook page and other platforms.


Once the budget's in place, what's the schedule, and even if it might be waaay too early to ask, any idea when and where the film will be released onto the general public yet?


We’re keen to shoot Bubbles in April and then plan to get it out there on the 2017/18 film festival circuit, where we hope it will do well. Little Dude Films' previous films have been very successful in festivals, so we hope Bubbles will follow in this trend.


Any future projects beyond Bubbles you'd like to share?


While we're naturally focussing on Bubbles right now, things are getting rather interesting in terms of Little Dude Films’ future projects. These include, potentially, a political drama, a boxing film, a feature length version of my film noir Deathless and a film or play about Hollywood actress Veronica Lake, which I’ve co-written with legendary writer Donald Bain, who co-wrote Veronica’s autobiography with her in the late 1960s.

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


I’d just like to say to anyone reading this, please invest in Bubbles if you can. It’s a great little movie, full of humour, pathos and humanity, which I hope will be a big success on the film festival circuit. With your support we can make Bubbles the film we know it can be. Thank you.


Thanks for the interview!


My pleasure and thank you Michael for your invaluable support for Bubbles and for filmmakers everywhere. You’re a star.
