Tues 10th Nov GUEST SPEAKERS via Zoom
Samuel Gridley and Luke Kaile
Sam and Luke cover their journey making Criminal Audition from their kitchen tables to a global audience - and all the challenges they faced in order to help anyone who may decide to take on the challenge themselves. This explores their roles in making the film: Luke as the writer, producer, lead actor, and Sam as a writer, director but also their companionship in the years where nothing was happening and it was just them, their script and a will to carry on!
Criminal Audition comes out in the USA/Canada next week on the 13th of October and the UK on the 26th of October (on iTunes, Amazon and Sky Store). Here's a link to the trailer
