In the second part of our 2014 highlights we present favorite moments from three more Peccadillo staff members.
Jude Watson-Abell is our youngest staff member and joined Peccadillo as apprentice graphic designer.
The highlight of the year was getting to design my first cimema poster for the film YOU AND THE NIGHT. It was the first time I had designed anything like it and it was a great learning experience. At first it was rather daunting but with the right direction I was able to create a poster that I was proud of. Finishing this poster and seeing people’s positive reaction helped my confidence grow and allowed me to go on to create two more cinema posters. One for the film THE SAMURAI ,which sold rather well at FRIGHTFEST, and another for the film EASTERN BOYS.
Our new Home Entertainment manager Olivier Namet joined Peccadillo in November 2014:
My highlight for 2014 was starting work at Peccadillo. I have loved their films for years and now I can continue loving OUR films. My film highlight would have to The Way He Looks. I first saw the short film version (which is one of many extras on our DVD and Blu-ray) at Iris and it was fantastic seeing it become a brilliant, funny, and heart-warming feature.
And finally Rob Fowler is the Peccadillo Pictures finance manager and rarely gets let out of the office…
My highlight was going down to the IRIS PRIZE FESTIVAL in Cardiff which is so friendly and welcoming due to the care and attention of Berwyn and Grant and their team. Particularly getting to meet many of the filmmakers showing their brilliant short films – obvious super talented future feature makers. Our film THE SAMURAI was very well received there and the wonderful Kate Trotter won Best Actress for her role in our film TRU LOVE.
