Do Something, Jake was very well received at the Southend and New Forest Film Festivals recently, with a lot of interest being shown in the genre and the way in which the film was made.
Southend Film Festival
Great weather greeted us in the popular seaside town. This was our first visit to the renowned festival headed up by film professional, Paul Cotgrove, who attracts a big following to this outstanding annual event. The festival encompasses a wide range of independent films, including classics from yesteryear. We were lucky enough to catch screenings of Under the Radar and Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records, both very fine documentaries. If you’re a film fan, put this festival on your list for 2020!
New Forest Film Festival Do Something, Jake was also screened at The Malt Cinema in Lymington, Hampshire. A fantastic occasion with a splash of red carpet action! Excellent event organisation, perfect cinema projection, and an attentive audience made for a memorable visit to this upcoming – and soon to be BIG – Hampshire festival. The audience had many questions to ask about our crazy project as part of the post-screening Q&A, and what a lovely bunch of people they were! Again, watch out for this event in 2020!
Yes, we have achieved the seemingly impossible: made a film with a zero-budget, which is now heading for global distribution via an online and Blu-ray/DVD release! Further theatrical screenings are also a possibility. We’re now preparing the material for delivery and then we’ll have more details about the release dates, links, etc.
Thank you to everyone who has supported this project since 2015 and stuck with it!
“Producing Do Something, Jake has been a battle with many ups and downs, but we’ve also had great support from many passionate film enthusiasts, which makes receiving this award so special for all involved.” — James Smith
Do Something, Jake has been a clear success following the World and London Premieres. The recent Mountsorrel event attracted another enthusiastic crowd and further screenings are planned from May 2019 in the south of England. The demand and enthusiasm for this crazy ‘indie film’ has even taken us by surprise. Can you believe that global distribution is now on the cards!
Do keep posting and sharing on social media, and we will let you know when screenings and online/DVD/Blu-ray releases are about to happen!
