Welcome Films About Derek Evans The Salon

4th March 2015

Proudest bloody day of my life. Us here at Lincoln Studios have finished our first ever feature film!!!! It’s called AAAAAAAAH! I almost had to be given the kiss of life when I finished watching it round the director’s place last night. I collapsed to the floor head in hands, I was so overwhelmed. It was better than when I finally opened the salon in Grantham after 16 months of crap with the contractors. It is a fantastic feeling for me but the credit goes to the brilliant actors, crew and production team.

Here’s the poster for AHHHHHHH!!!! Shitting hell it’s brilliant isn’t it! And f-ing creepy. Won’t be putting it on my wall. Don’t fancy seeing that when I get up for a pee in the night, I’d probably wet myself on the landing!!!! Designed by an American feller called Jay Shaw I think, who has relatives in North Hykeham. Yours. Derek Evans

It’s a knackering business shooting a film, even though I’ve just been sitting around most the time trying not to get in everyone’s way. Apparently in one of the more ‘intimate’ scenes you can see me in the background messing around with the ring tones on my mobile. They had to do another ‘take’ because of it. I felt bloody terrible about that and bought everyone a curry and beers to say sorry. It’s funny watching the crew running around like ants. It’s hard to know what the hell they’re doing half the time. Probably nothing!

Got up early to take the dog out. The sunrise was fantastic, will suggest that to the director as an idea for the next film.

Had a panicked phone call from the editor saying he had just pressed delete and lost half the footage of the film. I said not to touch another button and drove straight round to pick him up and take the computer to Currys. A very helpful young lad there called Will found the lost footage for us in the recycle bin and was able to restore it. Phew! He also suggested an upgrade form Windows XP to Windows 7 to avoid that happening again.
