Filtered news/Shane Meadows starts shooting new film

Industry news arrives at The Filter's wires: Under the working title This is England, Shane Meadows (Dead Man’s Shoes, Once Upon a Time in the Midlands, A Room for Romeo Brass, Twentyfourseven), started shooting his new film last week. The film is described as 'darkly comic rites of passage story which unfolds during the summer of 1983, when Britain’s disenchanted youth took to the streets of the working class towns across the nation.' It tells the story of Shaun, an 11-year-old kid growing up in the north of England. Set during the summer holidays, it follows his rites of passage from a shaggy haired ruffian grieving the loss of his father in to a shaven headed thug whose anger and pain are embraced by the local skinhead fraternity. Cast includes Thomas Turgoose, Stephen Graham, Jo Hartley, Joe Gilgun, Andrew Shim and Vicky McClure.

I skim a lot of blogs, and
so far yours is in the Top 3
of my list of favorites. I'm
going to dive in and try my
hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different
area than yours (mine is
about keyword ranking)
I know, it sounds strange, but it's
like anything, once you learn more
about it, it's pretty cool.

If you don't mind, I'd really appreciate
being able to come back and get a
few tips and suggestions from you,
if that's alright, alright?

Please do come back for tips, not that I know much about the internet itself, although I do have my share of experience in writing.

anyway, speak soon.
