Perfect Good Sense: Great Year Ahead for Sigma!

With a new year comes the hope wishes and dreams of many good things, including those for a wonderful year ahead for the readers of this blog.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the time you've taken to stop by, read, and perhaps learn a bit about the people and work written about here. I hope its been of some use. I try very hard to keep up with Sigma who are so brilliant so original and so worth learning about; I'm most certainly not perfect and want to do so much more with this site this year!, but I hope there's been something that's been worthwhile. Same holds for Jamie Sives-I love you Jamie, I will back you and support you and never stop spreading the word about you and your talent! I hope many more people will continue to follow his work, for he's got another great year ahead. Both he and the truly outstanding people of Sigma have been most MOST generous with their time, patience, and support. I love them all, Colin and Brian esp. rock my world, have for years, and will always have my continued support admiration and well.. I have no shame in saying that I wish only continued good things for them in the year and years to come.

Most of all, the many private mails and comments have made THE difference-thank you from the bottom of my heart. Esp to those who follow on Twitter, new friends made, and old ones retained. A big hug and thanks again to the fellow fansites and to Ollie and Helge (I miss you!) xxxx
Cheers to you all for a healthy happy and joyful year ahead!!!!

It surely is going to be a wonderful year ahead for Sigma Films! At least three films will be released, the first is of course David Mackenzie's Perfect Sense, which will premiere in just a few weeks at the Sundance Film Festival. They've released David's statement on the movie, which reads as follows:

The film is talking about day-to-day things. It’s about how people cope with terrible changes rather than the disaster itself. That’s one of the things I found amazing and challenging about it. We agreed on creating a poetic version of the story rather than a big splashy special effects-version of it. You could have re-designed it as an 80 million Hollywood movie with lots of special effects and bombast, if you wanted to do. But we were very conscious that we didn’t want to do that. We decided to be low-key and to maximize the micro-cosmic, to keep it minimal, to pull it back from all the tropes and tricks. To push the envelope of the romance – push the genre inwards not outwards. There was an instinct that told me not to be too grandiose about it, because the story is grandiose enough in itself.

Other key things:
Colin Kennedy's I LOVE LUCI short continues to do well-did you see the great news on the official site? Luci will be touring this year and possible distribution is in the works-AWESOME! Colin wrote "...Luci will continue to tour the globe in the festival circuit next year with Candella Films as part of a selection of the best films to emerge from the UK in 2010 and we also hope to announce an international distribution deal in the very near future."


Plus there is Citadel, You Instead, and much more in the works! Jamie Sives will be SINGING at the Eilidh Brown Memorial Concert too on January 15 (TICKETS NOW SOLD OUT AWESOME CONGRATS. PLEASE PLEASE IF YOU ARE GOING VIDEO /PHOTOS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE :D) Plus he has GoT coming to a screen near you soon and the One Day film (lolz again to the beard) Who knows what goodies he has up his sleeve; whatever it is its going to be great! :))

Stay well, stay healthy be happy and stay tuned please, many good and great things lie ahead!
