March Drinks with Olivier Kaempfer

A great turn out of members last month to meet Olivier Kaempfer, Senior Microwave Executive at Film London and BAFTA nominated producer with a film on release; Parkville Pictures'  Appropriate Behaviour

As we congregated in the members area at the Phoenix Artist Club

some excellent networking and discussion was had with plenty of new and familiar faces in the mix. 

Alongside Olivier were a range of directors, producers, writers and development people all with plenty of projects on the go and potential connections to be made. Big thanks to Olivier for sharing his experience and news of the Microwave scheme and Viva la network! 

This month we welcome Gideon Defoe, novelist and screenwriter whose adaptation of his own book, Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists with Aardman Animations was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Come along and chat all things comedy and animation at our upcoming April get together.  

Thanks to Jeremiah Quinn for the photos.
