Happy Birthday to me: The Stay

THESTAY

FEB 1st: Today is my birthday. I’ve been overwhelmed by all the well-wishes, thanks everyone. I spent a lovely morning with my family opening presents, cards and eating cake!

Then I hit the road and travelled to a cottage in deepest, darkest Gloucestershire. For today is also another birthday – the birth of my new short film ‘The Stay’.

Last October I was at the London Screenwriter’s Festival participating in a panel discussion on Horror Films. After the panel, at the wrap-up session, organiser Chris Jones challenged all attendees to turn to the person next to them and pledge their goal to be accomplished by the next festival. Talented writer/director Steven Sheil (Mum & Dad) was with me and I pledged that I would direct my next film by the next Festival.

And today, that pledge was fulfilled thanks to the generosity and support of our Sponsume backers and my amazing cast & crew.

Everyone arrived right on cue, we set up and shot the first couple of scenes before dinner and a quick drink. Now it’s time for some shut-eye before 2 more days of shooting.

I’ll be Tweeting throughout the shoot & post-production, and posting updates, photos & videos on the official movie blog, so please check out Twitter hashtag #TheStay / http://twitter.com/frazer_lee and visit http://thestaymovie.wordpress.com

Best birthday ever?

This one will Stay with me for a long, long time :)
