Show 2.09, “A Dinner Date with Hugo and Woody”

After editing together a few fake trailers for Baz Luhrmann’s Australia back in 2008, Stuart Bowen found himself employed with Bazmark. What a way to get a job! Stuart is now in the post production phase of his first short animated film, Woody. Like many filmmakers these days, he’s looked to crowd funding as a way to make his idea into a reality. We spoke to Stuart to find out all about Woody and the looong process of creating a stop frame animation with puppets.

Producer Chrissy Kavanagh and Writer/Director Alex Vickery-Howe

We try not to toot our own horn too much on Behind the Screens. We’re here to report cool film happenings and not to get tied up in our own lives. BUT sometimes the two cross. Chrissy has been producing a short film with writer/director Alex Vickery-Howe for quite a few months now and Dinner With Hugo is shot and ready to be edited. So I put on the interviewer hat and Chrissy crosses the floor to interviewee along with Alex as I press them for information – including how their fundraising campaign went (see picture opposite for the sort of bribes they offer) and assembling a crew with a super low budget.
