(24) London, England – Yes, it was that time again, a get-together to celebrate the birthday of the Carry On / Sid James / comedy expert, and all-round nice-guy, Robert Ross. A splendid time was had by one and all at the Sherlock Holmes pub, Charing Cross. Earlier in the day, Keith attended a production with another top-chap, Simon Lupton, director of the forthcoming Queen/ Eagle Rock short-feature, Hungarian Rhapsody.
(18) London, England – Meeting with American producers, Kathy McCabe, Ryan White (director of the 2010 movie, Pelada) and Peggie White to discuss a rather exciting new documentary project. Watch this space!
(2) The Lancaster London Hotel London, England – At the prestigious FOCAL AWARDS, the
documentary, Queen: Days of Our Lives (on which Keith was the archive footage researcher), came second in two categories, ‘Best Use of Footage in an Arts Production featuring Music’ (losing out to the superb Harry Belafonte American programme, Sing your Song - S2BN Belafonte Production) and ‘Best Use of Footage in a Cinema Release’ (behind the equally wonderful, Senna - Universal Pictures UK). Keith, once more, sends his congratulations to those who worked on those programmes and to those who quite happily toiled alongside him, Simon, Rhys, Matt, Cara et al, on the Queen show. Ladies and Gentlemen, we can now, quite proudly call ourselves “Award-Nominated” individuals in our respective careers.
