Damned fine filmmaker, Amiel Courtin-Wilson, who comes from around these traps, is up and running with his film 'Hail'. In a small filmmaking community, it seems there is never enough time to support each other's flicks but I am rapt that this film - which has creatively emerged out of his short film 'Cicada' which screened in Cannes last year - is going to get made and I wish I had cash to throw at it to make it easier for them. Amiel has mostly been working in documentary in recent years but there is little doubt he is going to direct something visceral, vital and pretty incredible. Kill it, sir.

If you're inclined to tread the boards, they are doing an open casting call - I think it's a case of non professionals and non actors preferred - and there is information and regular progress posts here.
