Team Ugly List: The Producer's View, The Countdown

This week, Team Ugly List have been out and about checking locations and racing the clock... Producer, Jessica Levick, fills us in.

We’ve now got under a fortnight until all our deliverables for iFeatures are due to be submitted – so the countdown to the 22 August delivery deadline is well and truly under way.

Team Ugly List: The Director's View

Screenwriter Abby Ajayi, Director Alex Kalymnios and Producer Jessica Levick are still hard at work developing their iFeatures project The Ugly List and finding time to send WFTV a weekly blog on their experiences too. This week, we hear from Alex with 'The Director's View: Sizzling in the Heat'.

Team Ugly List: The Writer's View

This week Team Ugly List are back with the third instalment of their blog charting the iFeatures development journey and its time to hear from Abby Ajayi in 'The Writer's View: Mother or Midwife'.

Today, I'm mainly thinking about my secondary school days, running shoes and also motherhood and midwifery. Strangely enough, all of this does in fact tie-in with iFeatures and the treatment rewrite I'm doing on our project The Ugly List.
