It’s official. Closedown is an award-winning short film!
Thank you again to everyone who helped us make this film and to all the organisers and staff at Newlyn International Film Festival for putting on a great festival programme and including us in it. We are super grateful to have been shortlisted and even more so to have won.
It’s been a while since the last update. Here at Very Long Road, we’ve been pretty busy finishing up the production side of ‘Closedown’. Now it’s editing time. Peter’s doing an excellent job so far, but it’s a long road (how apt). CH and her co-director Liam (from Baby Elvis and Chewbacca’s Beard) are providing guidance and creative input throughout this process.
Here’s a little tiny taste of what we’ve got going on (yes those black bars do represent CinemaScope).
We’ve taken inventory and we can’t wait to put all this to use.
Welcome to Very Long Road’s very own toolkit:
You could already find the Very Long Road showreel on our Vimeo, and half of the content is my own work (the other half being the product of CH’s labours).
Here for your viewing pleasure is my new personal showreel, updated with even more great little clips of work you’ve not yet seen.
I used After Effects to animate the titles, and Photoshop to create the assets within.

What do you all think? Spent the weekend on this instead of our current Very Long Road films, so next week I hope to get new film progress updates to you instead!
This will be the first you’ve heard from us about our new production. It’s not new for us, though, we started this project back in February (from a script written late last year.)
We are super excited about it, and just couldn’t keep it all in the dark much longer, so here is a little sneak-peek at the work we’ve been doing – a still of Peter working on the storyboard for scene five.
