Hello to all of you wonderful people that have donated money to this cause. I am so humbled by your generosity and so excited to send you this update.
On this day 2 years ago, we lost a Mum, a Nana, a friend, a mentor, an inspiration..... It doesn't seem to get easier but what has made this day bearable (apart from good friends, food and wine!) is that we have officially begun work on the #celialashliefilm.
And it is thanks to all of you!
We have experienced director, producer and editor Lala Rolls on board which is so exciting! (see https://www.nzonscreen.com/person/lala-rolls). The timing has been perfect (spooky even!) and Amanda (Millar) and I are wondering if Mum is pulling the strings somewhere.....
Lala has today started going through hours of footage from all the different sources Amanda has collated and she will begin to map out the ‘vision’ that Amanda has for the film. That will take 3-4 weeks. At the end of that, the assembly will reveal what works and what doesn’t. And it will identify what other aspects need to be shot or recorded.
From this we will get a plan and a budget that will enable us to make the #celialashliefilm. We are making one of Mum's last wishes come true and that feels wonderful. Thank you!
Please get in touch if you have any questions
