A Winter Road: The HTC’s first ever interview!

29 Jul

A Winter Road is a fantastic small budget film production company, created in order to experiment, showcase and create on self driven projects commission by allography, an artist’s response web magazine that publishes every six weeks. They have created stageplays, radioplays and a number of short films all with a collective of creatives which make up the company.

Of course, you’ll have to listen to episode one to hear from Andy Futaishi and Sid Phoenix about the ins and outs and all round crazy occurrences that…well…occurred…during their latest stint in the world of low budget Brit films.

Despite a six month stretch of working day and night to take three short films from scratch through to being fully fledged entries for this years festivals (Venice and Sundance, to name-drop just a little), they:
1. Didn’t die of exhaustion and…
2. Didn’t lose an ounce of their raw passion to make their visions into three astounding realities.

We hope that their fantastic short films Under The City (which is shaping up to be the HTC ladies fave), Like a Little Gift and The Last Seaside Variety Show kill it at the festivals this summer…check back on the blog as we chart their successes.

One thing that this charming duo make very clear is that the sheer dedication they show for their work will see them leap from strength to strength over the next 18 months.

Us HTC girls have been lucky enough to witness these small-time trailblazers in full flow… and now we’ve brought it to you. Hence forth to episode one and listen, and check them out at www.awinterroad.co.uk or on Twitter at @AWinterRoad.
