Dear All –

┬áHope everyone is well and enjoying the short bursts of summer sunshine! Now we have Elizabeth back from her whirlwind tour of the Med as part of the British Council’s Cinema Nautica (previously called Spring Loaded) film and festival project , we have been drumming up lots of juicy work for the summer season including helping out on Enfield Council’s Bicycle Ballet – funnily enough incorporating two of Brek’s favourite passions – dance and cycling! Check out there website here – it looks great fun http://www.bicycleballet.com

We are also arranging another 24 hr Film Challenge as part of the North London Film Partnership; if you want to take part in this please see http://www.nlfp.org.uk/ for more information as well as hosting the screenings for the SEPG film marathon http://southernexposurepg.org.

You will also be able to see the films made as part of the Cultural Olympiad’s Tree of Light workshops across the country as the Tree of Light events are the major city celebrations as the Olympic torch passes through – would be great to see you there dates and locations are; Oxford Monday, July 9th and Henley Saturday, July 21st. For further details check out http://thetreeoflight.org

Meanwhile, My Soviet Kitchen is still roaring ahead, and we are currently meeting up with lots of Heads of Departments and also out to cast for the main role of Ivy. Once we know who she is we will be able to look for suitable men to play opposite her. It’s going to be great fun to see who we can potentially pair her up with. We will be putting four more MSK podcasts up shortly so watch this space.

Best Wishes,

The Tailormaidens.

Dear All –

We hope you all had a joyous Christmas and a fun filled New Year. Ours was brilliant and spread across several different countries with Elizabeth in Transylvania, Brek in Grenada and Guernsey and Clare, well Clare manning the fort back in Blighty with the two baby tigers!

We are all extremely excited about what 2012 brings, including the development and shoot of our Russian rom com, My Soviet Kitchen. The script is very well developed now and we are currently in discussions with co-producers about logistics and will be sending out to cast in the next few weeks – watch this space. Don’t forget to ‘like’ us on facebook to be updated with podcasts and stuff!

As well as the feature film, we were currently working with the amazing freelance theatre producer Bridget Floyer on a theatrical adaptation of a famous circus novel, more on this to come soon. We are also in talks with various television bods about an original new television concept, as well as the numerous ongoing workshops which are happening back and forth across the city. Like we said, an exciting year.

Other news Tailormade has recently moved offices and is renting a space from the fantastic Spicer and Moore guys. Please do drop us a line if you are ever near Piccadilly Circus, it would be great to say Hi.

and to conclude….. the end of 2011 saw us complete the film workshops for the Tree of Light Cultural Olympiad project. No mean feat one workshop featured 90 x 11 year olds! We will post as soon as the films go online. For those of you who have not yet seen Island (how is that possible?!), it is now available on Video on Demand and┬áDVD sales of Island are going extremely well and we are about to embark round two of festival submissions to all those fantastic little festivals around the world so you may yet get the chance to watch it on the big screen. Again any suggestions you have are most welcome – we love big and small so write on in.

Thanks and best wishes.

The Tailormaidens
