Pitch Black Heist, in pieces


Last month, Scottish filmmaker John Maclean's Pitch Black Heist, starring Michael Fassbender and Liam Cunningham, won BAFTA's Best Short Film. It's only 13 mins long, but the full length of the short is not available for most of us to see yet. I do look forward to seeing it because I love the acting energies between Michael and Liam, they're such great pals.

One of my papers is complete,due today, the other one is in the final editing stages, due Thursday... I am so damn tired, my migraines and allergies are not helping matters, but, it's what I have to do.

If you would like to send Michael a Happy Birthday greeting to me via email, please make sure I get it by 6pm EST, Friday, March 16th. Any messages after that, I cannot guarantee it will be included. Typed written messages via email are the only form of greeting I can accept; no videos, no tweets. Thanks!

Doesn't Michael also have a writing credit for PBH?

Simone said...

I believe he does. Thanks for mentioning that!

So he's technically won a BAFTA for his writing. That is AWESOME.

Do you think PBH could be shown in Cannes in the short film section of the festival?

He and Liam were executive producers. Maclean wrote and directed.

Is it true Michael and PBH will be at Tribeca Film Fest?

Simone said...

BTW, it looks like Pitch Black Heist will play at the Tribeca Film Festival in April for the Short Film Program!

Anon at 3:12 - this article says Michael co-wrote the screenplay: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/features/the-diary-michael-fassbender-upstairs-downstairs-jeremy-deller-clybourne-park-6988510.html

You are so sweet to organize a collection of birthday greetings for Michael!

Just to clarify, Friday is March 16th. Do you need the greetings by tomorrow, (Thursday), March 15th or Friday (March 16)?

Thanks for all you do.

Hey Courtney, thank you so much for pointing out my calendar date error - I'm so out of sorts with studies. I'll make the correction, but yes, FRIDAY, March 16th by 6pm. :-)
