…So, this is Christmas and what have you done?…

24 Dec 2012

Seems as if we have behaved so well this year that Christmas has arrived early at Aconite. Our baby steps have been straight and steady…and so far no stumbling.

We started to trade last year with the launch of Everybody’s Child by Garry Fraser. This film was recently completed and we hope it will start travelling and be known to the world in early 2013. The TV version of this film ‘My Lives and Times’ was broadcast on BBC 2 last July and nominated for a Creative Diversity Network award for best Nations and Regions TV program last November.

So Christmas has indeed arrived with the announcement of two new projects for 2013:

’15 in Gaza’… by Palestinian director Wesam Mousa has just been commissioned by Aljazeera and we will enter into production in February 2013.

‘Aquarela’… a daring, challenging and ambitious concept by the almighty documentary maker Victor Kossakovsky, will start developing in early 2013. Ma.ja.de and Scottish Documentary Institute are already supporting this project. We are thrilled to embarking on this new journey.

We have enjoyed all of our challenges, have continued to build our pool of friends and supporters and are ready to carry all our goodwill, great energy and passion into the New Year.  We wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have worked with us, encouraged and trusted us throughout this year.

Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and all the best for 2013!
