Writer & Director Daniel Mulloy and Producer Afolabi Kuti join us at the Breakfast Club to talk about writing, producing, financing, getting names stars, the strategy and tactics of awards and distribution, and making a film that makes a difference to the planet.
The Breakfast club is back for a special morning session at the Phoenix Artist Club. Join us for a full English before sitting down to a cracking conversation with
Screenwriter and Director Daniel Mulloy and Producer Afolabi Kuti about their stunning BAFTA winning short film 'Home', and finally wrapping up and networking your way to the weekend.
HOME - is where the heart is... and Jack and Holly's home seems full of heart on the morning of their departure on what looks like a vacation - until they put their kids in the trunk of a stranger's car - and get separated themselves on what turns out to be a reversed refugee journey, from a quiet suburban house to a campfire in the middle of a war torn country.
In many ways Daniel and Afolabi threw away the short film manual and broke the rules...
With EE Rising star award winner Jack O'Connell and Holliday Grainger (Cinderella, The Borgias) delivering beautifully nuanced and subtle performances, Daniel Mulloy's (2nd!) BAFTA winning short
film uses the jarring nature of the reversal exercise in style to force the audience to challenge its perception of a distant crisis and explore the human coping mechanisms of any family faced
with horrifying situations... And the plight of the 60 million refugees very powerfully hits - home.
Daniel has shared the script for ‘Home’ with us which you can download and read when you’ve signed up. Read the script before the talk to get a much more in-depth understanding of the journey this intense and deeply moving story went on from script to screen.
Whether you're interested in learning how to win not just one but two BAFTAs, attract rising stars to your scripts, shoot a short film over 3 countries - or how to get Coldplay to donate their music for your credits - Daniel and Afolabi will be there to answer your questions!
Get your pass to an outstanding networking opportunity and inspiring session below! See you there!
When: Fri 16th June // Where: Phoenix Artists Club, WC2H 8BU // How much: £16.50

‘A very inspiring morning with lots of valuable information... Looking forward to the next one!’
The Breakfast Club is monthly initiative to connect creative and business professionals in film and TV. We do this by creating a safe place to network whilst listening to thought leaders, industry gurus and entrepreneurs.
...and write, produce, direct, act, compose, design or even do the accounts and legal, you would be welcomed both by our amazing team, as well as our delegates eager to connect with you.
...with the guest speaker presenting around 3pm. This means by 4pm, you can head back to work, or better yet you can hang out and network into the evening. The best of both worlds.
After a short break, the London Breakfast Club was back. At the new, more sociable time of Pimms O’Clock on a Friday, the Phoenix Artist Club was yet again packed out to hear words of wisdom from
a Hollywood great.
I was lucky enough to get a bit of time beforehand to talk with Christopher. What struck me most about him was that the old adage 'leave your ego at the door' just didn't apply here, simply because he didn't have an ego to start with. An incredibly generous and genuine soul who seemed to enjoy being in a room of writers as much as we enjoyed listening to him.
The Breakfast Club is a London Screenwriters’ Festival Creative Community initiative.
