Last night our colourful kaleidoscopic super-8 delight, Getting Ready, was shown at the fantastic Braine Hownd short film night.

Promising to showcase 'the best in new short films' our little movie was one of just five on the bill for this brand new film event, held every first Tuesday of the month at the Hideaway, which you can find in between Tufnell Park and Archway tube stations in LONDON TAAN!

This is what Braine Hownd's official blog made of the night:

There have been a few great sequels (Terminator 2, Aliens, Desperado, Three men and a little lady, Jaws 2) and some not so good sequels (Teen Wolf Too, Transformers 2, Sex and the City 2, Jaws: The Revenge). However, there was no sophomore slump for Braine Hownd Film’s second short film night (or as host Matt Prendergast put it ‘the first, second Braine Hownd Film Night ever”).

It was another packed night in The Hideaway basement, and, thanks to the summer coming to London for a few days, its lovely beer garden, which seemed to host both the pre and post film shenanigans... The last film before the interval was Getting Ready by Ben Barton. Though I wouldn’t call this a short film, more a music video, it looked stunning. It was shot on Super 8 film and on location at Chatham Brook Theatre. Getting Ready tells the the story of faded glories and past dreams.
