Hallam Foe is here, officially out of our hands, into the cinemas and available for all.
So to those of you that have seen it already (like it or not!) it is your duty to live up to your privilege and tell the world they must go and see this movie, preferably this weekend!
This is a rare moment for me. I didn’t do anything on the film that permits to have any real sense of ownership, but, strange as the world is, I have a great sense of inherited responsibility for the welfare of our baby. I have worked very hard on this project for a number of years (on and off in various capacities) and it has become very dear to my heart.
So I and the rest of the team commend Hallam Foe to you, our audience, and we are very proud to so. It has been a labour of love, our beautiful nightmare and we have finally arrived at the point of hand over. I thought this would be a far more momentous occasion in my mind but the realities of these moments are never as you predict. Instead each of those close to the grind of this production from start to finish has their heart in their mouth, bated breath and all the other clichés that point to a profound sense of anticipation as to our opening weekend fate.
I should say however, that like our offspring, the dear Hallam Foe, our endearing, feral wee monster, we tackle the world head on and will take our lot as it comes, we have worked hard and will get what we deserve for the fruits of our labour.
Have a wonderful weekend and if you fancy it, why not take a trip to the cinema (there’s a great new film out!).
Lots of love and a fond farewell from all the Family Foe.

Wishing you all lots of luck and good box office receipts, fingers crossed.
I'll miss this blog, I may not have posted much but have been avidly reading. Will there be another blog when production starts on David's next film?!

Farewell Family Foe. Farewell Hallam - it's been nice watching you...
I really hope you'll succeed at the box office.
PS Colin I hope you'll keep blogging (not necessary here) - it would be interesting to know about your own projects (Beckett etc.)
Thank you so much for all your support while we've been doing this. I will blog again, and will probably continue to blog here, both about Hallam Foe and my own projects and with any luck David's future projects too. Stay tuned x
