CAMPAIGN DIARY:

For those of you who think that directors’ lives are spent rushing from one glamorous shoot to another - take note of the experience of TTO director, Martin Briley.

For those of you who think that directors’ lives are spent rushing

from one glamorous shoot to another - take note of the experience of TTO

director, Martin Briley.



Briley was happily resigned to filming an ad for Lindt chocolates in

sunny Camden Town, when he received a panicked call from his office.



TTO had entered Briley’s short film, Drifting, into the Manhattan Short

Film Festival, and the festival office had called to say it had been

shortlisted for several categories. The awards ceremony was on the

Friday night, three days away, but Briley was determined to be

there.



He conscientiously finished his Lindt shoot, wrapping by 4.30pm on

Friday and jumping in a cab to catch the 6.30 flight to New York.



It was just as well he made it, as Drifting was elected best overall

short film, with the prize of free film and camera equipment for

Briley’s first feature. After a few glasses of bubbly, he sped back to

London to start filming another ad, this time for Flash. What a

comedown
