good evening shane. first time messager, long time......watcher.
just a quick one. i was on countdown last year, i got absolutely spanked if you were wondering, and in my application they ask hobbies etc, were i mentioned my fav film was dead mans shoes.
Des Occonnor said this on air which provoked a discussion between me, Des, Carol and Barry Norman. if you were ever looking for some sort of validation in your life and a point to reach were you could die happy, surely it was carol and Des discussing your film while Suzie Dent watched on in her silent ponderous way.
good man, you gave me a link to carol which will last forever.
Hi to everyone and of course to the big man. I'm a huge fan and have followed your work since catching Smalltime by chance one late night on telly years ago. Went to see 24:7 the day it was released and have been hooked on your work ever since. Dead Mans Shoes is my all time favourite film and also contains my favourite scene of any movie ever; where Rich and anthony are waiting by the garages and Sonny confronts them. Paddy Considine is so good in that scene, and gary stretch too. Sooo Good. Really looking forward to seeing Somers Town this weekend although am surprised its on in so few cinemas in sheffield on its release weekend. Whats the story with that? Been interesting to read all the stuff in the newspapers about the funding for Somers this last week. I have faith and know its not gonna be an advert for a certain company as some writers seem to be suggesting. Your far too sensitive a film maker for that. Anyway keep up the great work and hurry up and get King Of The Gypsies finished, I'm really looking forward to that one. Loving the look of the site and looking forward to wiling away a good few hours on here. Cheers
Hi Shane In the hope that you may have temporarily plugged in the batphone - I'm going to be bold and speak direct. We are also huge fans of your work - here in my organisation based in Hull. We are in the process of developing a 2nd bid to First Light Movies (who support film making with young people). The project is called Young Directors - Part 2.
First Light have already supported Part one of the project - and we worked with 4 divergent groups of youngsters - and developed 4 very interesting film scripts.
Part 2 is about making the films, offering new workshops in areas such a Foley and CGI, and most importantly, getting to meet professionals working in the industry and ask questions .
Its a lot to ask, and maybe you get lots of similar requests. What we can offer you is a chance to see the KC stadium (!), payment of course and stimulating company for the day.
It would be fantastic if you could speak about the 5 day features ;D
Sorry I cheated and talked direct - but some of the info is confidential because its part of funding application.
respect to shane & crew who,s films i,ve been encaptured,love seeing around notts & the midlands being a ex amatuer boxer i,m looking forward to seeing your film on the bare knuckle fighter can,t wait.loved dead mans shoes,reminded me of the rave days of the 90,s and some of the daft gangs and wanna be,s like the one,s in the film speak later and top respect.k-o kidd.

Yep, one has to agree, Shane's films are collecting the credit they deserve, after my fist splash, A Room for Romeo Brass, I wanted more, and the man's delivered! Nice one!
The site’s both entertaining and also, sometimes, informing! Haha! (I’m kidding, kidding…)
Ok, Anyone fancy reading scripts? – Have lived in Bristol, Reading and London, seen a lot of weird, erh, stuff, hopefully portrayed in my latest script, though need honest feed back, I just can’t trust my mates anymore, if ya know what I mean… I also feel it needs a bit more of the comedy element…
So, if anyone may be able to, lend a hand shall we say, I’d be grateful!
Hey people. I've just started uni at Sheffield Hallam studying film production and since i have been at uni i've watched soooo many films. The ones that stand out the most though are obviously Shane Meadows'. I've watched 2 now (this is england and dead mans shoes) and they have left me speachless, when i normally have so much to say at the end of a film. I intend to get my hands on some of the other films now soon as possible. You have pure talent and are a big inspiration to me. Keep up the good work. x
