Day three of the 56th BFI London Film Festival and Premeire Scene's top reporters were back on the red carpet covering the premieres for For No Good Reason, Lore, Beasts of the Southern Wild and Grass Roots.
Premiere Scene's Claire Bueno and Anthony Bueno were at the Leicester Square Vue bar to speak with director Charlie Paul (Cherrywood Cannon) about his Ralph Steadman documentary - For No Good Reason. The film stars Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands) and features a substantial amount of Steadman style animation. Claire also spoke with producer Lucy Paul (Cherrywood Cannon) and artist Ralph Steadman himself.
While the Bueno's were finding out all about For No Good Reason, Premiere Scene's Nicola Johnston and William Mclaughlan were talking to a fellow Scot - producer Paul Welsh. Welsh was producer on Cate Shortland's second film Lore. Lore focusses on the children of Nazi Party members who are captured at the end of the Second World War. We also spoke with director Cate Shortland about her adaptation of the book, The Dark Room by Rachel Seiffert. Finally Nicola managed to speak with young actors Nele Trebs and Saskia Rosendahl about their participation in the project.
Claire and Anthony dashed over to speak with young star Quvenzahné Wallis, the young star of Beasts of the Southern WIld. Writer/director Benh Zeitlin (who also composed the score) spoke about his experiences making the film.
Nicola then met up with Mike Jonas to speak with director Stephen Gyllenhaal (Girl Fight) and star Jason Biggs (American Pie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) about their political slacker movie Grassroots.
Day three was filled with intense conversations about producing and getting your film made... exactly the sort of stuff we want to hear at Premiere Scene!
