After many months of being involved in this project, it was fantastic to see the finished project.
As a film student there is something incredibly satisfying about watching a film you helped shape and create. It’s beautiful. The film was a brilliant work of art, the fact that a medium of communication can receive such an emotional response from the audience is fantastic. It was good to see that so many people identified with it.
I wish more documentaries like this were produced. Classic Hollywood wouldn’t touch documentaries, even modern Hollywood won’t touch documentaries. It’s up to independent filmmakers and smaller companies to change this around. This is by far my favorite genre, due to how in-touch it is with reality. ‘Chewing The Cud’ is a perfect example of why I love documentaries.
I think children need to see more films just like this, it educates them as to how important this is to have a market, and to show the rapid changes that have occurred over the many, many years. I’m thoroughly pleased that this will be shown to schools. I’m hoping it will be shown at my sister’s school, I’m sure she’d find it interesting.
It really has inspired me to go down this route of film making. With the BFI finishing soon, I’ll have more time on my hands to see if I can come up with something.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience on this project, that’s for sure. I’m glad that there are still things I can help with, I’m already feeling nostalgic.
Good stuff, signing off for now.
Thanks Liam- I have just added a few pics and some twitter feedback – Julia
