So the first week’s filming on Derek went like a dream.
Definitely the most fun I’ve ever had on any production.
We laughed and ruined many takes and we also cried during some of the sweeter, dramatic moments.
The old actors (some are in their 90s) are all so lovely with amazing stories, and they bring such a weight and pathos to the whole thing.
It’s also the best ensemble cast I’ve ever been apart of. Karl is fucking brilliant. So natural.
David Earl is a comedy megastar of the future. And Kerry Godliman is simply one of the best actresses I’ve ever worked with.
I somehow picked up every performance Globe, Emmy and Bafta, for The Office and Extras, with none of the other amazing cast getting a look in. I really hope that isn’t the case with Derek. The performances from everyone are too good.
I couldn’t believe my luck with this photo when I saw the sign in the background…
In other news…
My app has basically done its development period and we are ready for an official launch in the autumn. If all goes well I should have my animal sanctuary sooner than expected. (Or I may just spend it all on a battleship and invade a tiny island for a laugh.)
And the most amazing news of all is that the pilot episode of Learn English with Ricky Gervais has been downloaded 10 million times in a week! That’s fucking mental. I mean, thank you.
Please have your translations ready for next week when we will release a clean version for you to add your own subtitles and post on Youtube.
