Young sailor film: real info required

#1
I am a film-maker from manchester and have been given a grant to make a short film about navy life, this is a fiction film and i want to get my facts correct, so i want to speak to Officers and Sailors that can help me make a positive, TRUTHFUL film about a sailors life on leave after returning from conflict,

I want to give you a voice, and this will be a film i want to sit in the audience with you and watch togehter, so iam not going to Hollywood it up or make up untruths,

the film is about Honour to the civvie street family and the family within the ship, and when a situation arises and you are given a choice, which way do you go, and how is this choice made.

If you are intreasted in helping, and proofing the script and getting involved please e-mail me at info @ asha-media.com

many thanks Mark Ashmore (Director)

Just take a trip to Portsmouth/Plymouth and go into a few matelot pubs and buy some of the patrons a few beers; you'll get a far more honest account of naval life there, rather than conducting a 'dry' interview...

Mine's a Guinness! :thumright:

Shagging close-ups?
Just parts, no faces. No true voices or faces explaining our useless MOD and Naval High Command. Those terms agreed --No shortage of heroes in the crowd.

What's it to be? A film about young sailors or a film about squaddies? you appeared to have duplicated this post on ARRSE.

What's the difference these days? Silly uniforms for JR's notwithstanding?

Asha,
Sgt P is correct.For the most candid views get in a pub and talk to people, nothing loosens a matelots tongue like alcohol. Also, changing the subject a bit, but it may be of use to you as a reference, there was a film made by Channel 4 around 25 years ago called remembrance, I thought it was a great film at the time and my brother who was in the mob at the time thought it fairly realistic (as far as TV fiction goes). Obviously a bit dated now, but may help you with ideas of how to present etc?

RP1986,
Yes that's the film. loved it when i was a lad not seen it for years though, I suspect now it would be too easy for me to tear holes in it. They smash up Boobs if I remember rightly. Ah, dear old Boobs, can't be many films that feature that wonderful establishment. Rosina I do remember a scene on the Torpers ferry, but as I was still a schoolboy I was more interested in the storyline than to try and spot mistakes which I may not have been able to spot anyway.

This all smells a little funny to me and sounds like another journo trying to get some dirt to use to beat us with. Besides I am sure I don't need to remind you all that you need permission to talk to the media. Remember the shite the last lot who sold their stories went through? No thanks mate!! I think we're all better off without.
