LA was great fun! Met a lot of industry Execs, did some networking, made some good meetings. Got to know how Hollywood works. All useful for later on.

We participated in the Goa Film Market in November 2007 and pitched Poona Company to a host of European financiers. The project was very well received with invitations to forward the screenplay when ready.

Martin Smith has delivered the 2nd draft and it is phenomenal! A little bit too long at present but we will be knocking it into shape during November.

Screen West Midlands has already earmarked £500,000 towards the production budget.

We took Bounty Hunter to the Production Finance Market in London during the London International Film Festival. The response was very positive with all financiers we met asking to read the script.
