The Historic Asolo Theatre circa 1950

Next stop Sarasota

There's no stopping Living with the Tudors now ... the Blog from SXSW has hardly gone up before we're announcing our next screening. Sadly we won't be there to see this one, which is a shame as the historic cinema looks amazing ... still if you're near Sarasota book now!

Wednesday April 9th 6.00pm or Friday April 11th 6.00pm
Both at the Historic Asolo Theatre

You might even get one of our new 'Limning Badges' ... as they predictably arrived too late for our big fat SXSW Tudor party!

Living without the Tudors

Yes I can hardly believe it after months of work we think the film is finally finished! It's taking some getting used to living without the Tudors as we have now spent what feels like most of the time since we left Kentwell last summer re-creating those three weeks every day in the edit suite!

A huge thanks to Sue Giovanni for her patient work guiding us through the on-line at VET and to Patrick Morgan and Alan Cronin at The Sanctuary for our amazing 'first grade' experience. We felt a rushing sensation of 'there's no way back from here' as we watched Patrick spin the strange 'grading globes' interface and lovingly tweak the depth of each and every one of the films already luscious HD shots.

Obviously the biggest thanks goes to Doug and Tim though ... they have lived with us as Tudors and directors for the long haul ... the edit and music are a credit to them.

The final countdown

As Nina finishes her packing before we join 1578 for our new film shoot, I thought I'd share my latest craft outbreak - a range of bespoke Tudor handbags to conceal our stuff. The one on the far right is - sad I know - exactly tailored to hide a one litre plastic water bottle.
I think I might have become a fully paid-up re-enactor....

Somewhere the film crew

Tudor-looking crew?

We're just back from 1569 ... seen here posing for a pin-hole photo with our great film crew John Podpadec and Paul Baker - it seems even a bus trip to the Czech Republic with us hasn't been enough to put them off time travel with Pope & Guthrie.

Behind the camera are Tim Olden and Jane Miller + lots of Tudor children!
