From shanemeadows.co.uk/ : The Shane's World project for Channel 4 is a guide to low budget film making which features four short films, film making tips and a collection of spoof advertisements. All four of the short films star Shane Meadow's long term friend, Paddy Considine who also appears as Morrell in A Room For Romeo Brass, and Richard in Dead Man's Shoes. The project as a whole is intended to help and inspire budding film-makers by showing the techiniques and tips that can help make a great short film for little or no money.
The introduction to Shane's World takes the form of Shane offering a prayer to ask for help getting back into short films after his work on his feature films. Although this is presented as a light-hearted opening to Shane's World, it does reflect Shane's real presumption (prior to making Shane's World), that it would be easy to get back into making low-budget shorts.. The reality however, was that he had started to lose touch with his small-scale projects, and that a change of attitude was necessary to get back into them.
cannot wait!!! someone borrowed my midlands 2disk set so havent seen it in ages, really looking forward to seeing Maccas Men again and the one with Paddy as an Italian American "gimmie some of that, that drink with the bunny on it yeah you know it's kinda nice"

meadowpain: I have only one question to ask. Is Mr Meadows a Notts County fan? If so would he like to go the last game of the season, I have a spare corporate ticket. Food etc. Life does not get more glamorous than that, not even in Hollywood!
