Simon and I are willingly assisting the organisers and doing all we can to ensure the events are packed with talks, workshops, interviews, performances and more, from some of the most entertaining and informative writers this side of the Watford Gap…we might even get some in from further than that.
We launched our teaser trailer video at the beginning of June and it has proved to be a very successful little marketing tool to get it out into the world.
It was created by Alex Smith, a 16 year old student at the time, who was delighted to make it to boost his portfolio as he prepared to set off on a quest for a permanent job as a graphic designer.
Tracey West was the creative director for the project and Simon West started the ball rolling by selecting the soundtrack that the promo was to be set to. Simon knew exactly where to seek out the perfect piece of music and headed straight towards singer and songwriter Josh Woodward. Lovers of Ubuntu will easily recognise the demo music he created for Canonical, click here to listen; incidentally, Josh won the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase 10.10 with it!
I know, I know, I’m being a tad ambitious but after penning our recent post about where entries for our literary competition originated from, I started thinking about the places we haven’t yet reached.
If I could just nip around to your house – yes you – I promise you faithfully, I would bring biscuits, I’d get your kettle on for tea and I’d give you a little poster about it to put up in your local library or surgery, or anywhere else you fancy come to that.
Unfortunately, rather like Anastasia Steele, I’m a little bit tied up at the moment…oh my.
