Anyone want to make a short film for fun in Birmingham?

Matthew Troman

Hey everybody! I am a cinematographer based in Birmingham and want to shoot a narrative short to practice my craft. Looking for other people who want to do the same. Ideally want to get this film into festivals but ultimately use it as a learning experience and just to get something on-screen would be great!
I'll link my website down below and message if you are interested.

Hi dear,

I hope you are well. I saw that you offer to collaborate editing and colour grading in that post about making a film. I thought in writing you because during lockdown I made a feature film documentary with my own resources and I am now putting together a rough cut. Is almost finished and I thought it would be great to get someone's else eyes on it.
The film is quite controversial. It ticks all the boxes of what festivals and distributors want. Please, let me know if you want to come onboard :)

Have a great evening,

Hello dear Matthew,

I would gladly love to work with you on a project ( Short Film ) that will be going into production in late November or early December which takes place in Birmingham with some Cast and Crew already on board. Initially, I was going to do the cinematography myself but after seeing your post today I believe you would be a great choice as our cinematographer. We are getting some of our crew from Coventry, Bristol, and Birmingham. We need someone who's willing to be creative and has a keen eye for visual storytelling because this short film will be submitted to festivals around the world. If you are interested please let us know.

Thank you, kind regards
