Cannes Film Festival

Just jumping into the doc again after the Cannes experience. In spite of all the hoopla you see and hear on this major film festival, some very serious business gets done there and should be on every filmmakers calendar. So grateful for the new contacts that I have made, now returning to the great weather here - and the ongoing story of our film. Jumped into action with a visit to Whitehall to watch the demonstration organized through Facebook on the plight of ME. Although the supporters were not as many as expected, some very ill people showed up, (there may have been a clash with the Invest in ME conference also taking place in London today) visit the link on the back page. It was nice to meet a Facebook friend or two. Some of the demonstrators went on to talk to their MP in the Houses of Parliament. This all gives more impetus again to get this film on the road! Will return to our patient editor Oli this week to complete the new teaser trailer shortly coming to the site. Keep tuned.

The ash subsided enough to let me back into the UK

After a great week or so in LA with lots of talks on funding, and attending the Britweek conference, it was time to return to the UK. Hit the ground running when the hearing of Dr Sarah Myhill came up at the General Medical Council. For those of you who have not heard of this do go to her site She is a very popular doctor who has helped hundreds of ME/CFS sufferers.They demonstrated for her in their wheelchairs and breathing tubes, do check out the news feeds and We have it all on film, and it will be inserted here on the site, when we recut the new trailer. There is lots of great interviews from Nevada, which you will also be seeing.
More later.
