Cannes 2016: Day 6

Tuesday 17th May: No script deadline, wahey! Surely a sleep-in is in order? Not really. If anything, we’re up even earlier because it’s our last day and we’re checking out of the hotel (got to pack), and we’ve a meeting at 10am. Once we’re ready, we want to leave our luggage somewhere instead of dragging…... Read more

Cannes 2016: Day 5

Monday 16th May: Script deadline day! As usual, dive into it first thing in the morning, and I go through the script from start to finish. I hit ‘send’. Not the most ideal time for a deadline, admittedly, but they sprung it on me this week (and knew I was going to Cannes) and I…... Read more

Cannes 2016: Day 1

Thursday 12th May: Alarm goes off at 1.30am. That’s 0130 hours. Ohmygod. I somehow drag myself out of bed, get dressed, have a cup of coffee and head over to collect Tim. By 2.15am, we’re on the road to Gatwick.  The road is empty, so much so that I barely recognise where I am in…... Read more
