Dear All –
Hopefully you have now seen a few of the Making Of Podcasts for our new movie My Soviet Kitchen and the crazy new journey that Brek and Elizabeth have recently embarked on. It all started in August 2010 when we we ordered the novel by Amy Spurling from our favourite publishers Roast Books.When the book arrived in a hessian sack with a miniature of Smirnoff inside, we knew we were on to a winner! The story instantly clicked with everyoneon the team, a natural break away from the bleakness of Island and into the colourful life work of Ivy Stone.
Brek and Elizabeth wrote the treatment in May and were awarded some development funding from the British Film Institute which enabled them to go to Russia and Georgia on a scouting / research trip. Upon their return they set about writing the script of which we are currently on draft 3 and hope to go out to cast in the new year…. everyone who has read it laughs a lot which is a very good sign! 🙂
Thank you for your continuing support and look forward to sharing the journey with you.
