Guy has just returned from a month in and around Texas shooting a road movie/indie doc about two poets called Looking for the Lone Star. He managed a side trip to LA and the team now has major Hollywood casting director Tricia Wood (currently casting MI3) on board for the new feature There's Nothing to it (TN2i).

TN2i will be made as a Canadian/UK co-production with Halifax-based Chronicle Pictures. Principle photography is scheduled to start in late sumer 2005.

Guy is also working with Bristol director Barry Hecker on a Memento-esque psychological drama called Tagged.

(past present future) Imperfect is complete. It's being sold world wide by sales agents Moviehouse. Some sales to Europe already under our belt. LiH has been picked up by Limelight Films in LA (Kiera Chaplin's production/distribution company), so we hope for some US sales soon. Naomie's in Trauma and just finished After the Sunset with Pierce Brosnan and Woody Harrelson, Tom's scouting movies in LA, Liam and Paul have been treading the boards in London theatreland and Robin got married.

Guy is working on putting together a Canadian co-production called There's Nothing to it with Chronicle Pictures to shoot May/June 2005.

Guy is just back from shooting what must rate as one of the speediest features of all time. (past present future) IMPERFECT was shot in 2 weeks on HD. It stars our very own Tom Harper alongside some great British talent including Rupert Frazer, Sorcha Cusack, Nicholas Irons and Stuart Bunce. There's a new website coming at www.ppfi.co.uk. The film follows the return from travelling of the youngest son of a devon family, back with his new black girlfriend.

Filming took place entirely on location at Huntsham Court in Devon which comes with its own pet ghost seen by at least 3 of the cast & crew. We hope to have it ready for the Cannes film fest in May.

THE DVD HAS ARRIVED! And it's available right now in the LiH shop. It's also available at www.play.com, HMV and WH Smith among others. The DVD comes with a FREE CD SOUNDTRACK by the fabulous Supertoys, featuring all the music from the film (including the title track by the gorgeous Sophie Lechner) and some choice sound bites.

The DVD features various extras including interviews with John Miller (director) and Guy de Beaujeu (writer), Supertoys' music video, the trailer voiced by Snatch fav Alan Ford, not to mention chats with the four leading lads. There's even an interview with composer Nick de Carlo.

Further congrats are due to Naomie who is currently filming After the Sunset (what a title) in The Bahamas opposite Pierce Brosnan. The film also stars Salma Hayek and Woody Harrleson.

It's official. We've made some sales, it seems LiH is going down a storm in Eastern Europe. Writer/producer Guy has returned from travelling, much to director John's amazement. The DVD release has been delayed to coincide with the new academic year and will be in all good entertainment shops in early October 2003. It will also be available for rental too. Not content with just a simple DVD, lucky punters will also get a CD soundtrack featuring Supertoys and Sophie Lechner for free. John is now series producer at BBC Bristol and will soon be too important to come and work on Fluidity's next feature project Past, Present, Future, Imperfect.

Congrats to Naomie Harris (Ginny) who has the launch of 28 Days Later in the US in early July and who has just completed filming Trauma with Colin Firth (who you'll remember also worked with Tom Harper last year). Doesn't he get around.

“…Living in Hope looks terrific, brims with talent, and bodes well for the future of feature film-making in the city.” Robin Askew – Venue Magazine

Congratulations to:
Naomie Harris (Ginny) who since making LiH has starred as the leading lady in Danny Boyle's new feature 28 Days Later, the feature adaptation of Zadie Smith's White Teeth (C4) and The Project - the Peter Kosminsky-directed BBC feature that got the government all het up.

Liam McMahon (Liam) has just voiced the lead character in a new multi-million pound animation series from the makers of King Rollo and Mr Benn called The Little Penguin for Nickelodeon. It is to be screened in the US and Britain early next year.

Tom Harper (Posh) has returned to Bristol to star in Mrs Warren's Profession opposite Isla Blair at the Bristol Old Vic. The show and Tom have garnered rave reviews with Lynn Garner describing Tom's efforts as 'equisitely judged'. Since LiH he's been slaving at the Royal Shakespeare Company in between coming to Cannes to help us promote the film (well that's what he said he was doing). He's also just completed shooting Warner Bros' latest offering American Girl (starring Colin Firth among others), a big budget coming of age drama. Apparently the script wasn't as good as LiH....but then he would say that as he's staying with the producer.
