In our second week back in the office, we’re well and truly back into the swing of things here at Blueprint! Both the Lincoln and London offices have had a solid week flexing their creative muscles this week; find out more below:
Fighting Fit in Lincoln
Mikaela and Dave had a meeting with Neville at Eiryukan Aikido in preparation for our aikido themed short film this week. He taught us a lot about the martial art, which focusses on defence without badly harming the attacker (although if you watch Steven Seagal do aikido you wouldn’t believe that). We’ve spent the last day or two thinking up aikido inspired storylines. David is particularly excited by the project as he’s a die-hard martial arts movie fan. The film is one of two shorts that we have received funding to make with local community groups. News on the second film to follow shortly!
We’ve also been writing funding bids and attending meetings about the forthcoming Flix in the Stix project. Village hall committees have been lining up in their droves this week, all desperate to get signed up to our mobile cinema service. We’re going to be starting with 8 villages, but the way things are shaping up this will likely expand further across the county over the next year or two. We can’t wait to start spreading the joys of attending the cinema to rural villages cut off from access to such services.
