I thought I'd give you a quick update. I'm about half way through the edit on Life On The Road and we basically have the movie. Obviously still weeks of fine tuning, grading and the dub, but we have 100 minutes of pure joy. And a bit of cringe. Well, a lot of cringe.
It’s been a much easier edit that Special Correspondents in many ways. There were strict, quite complicated plot lines and lots of twists and turns in Special Correspondents, whereas Life On The Road is a fun journey, centred around the antics of a bumbling fool. Also, with Life On The Road we’ve already recorded all the music and I own all the rights, which really makes life very easy.
I’m obviously looking forward to people enjoying Brent’s return but I’m most excited about the songs. Even though the songs are not to be taken seriously, they are really fucking catchy. Can’t wait to do some live gigs too. So much fun.
Before all that though, Special Correspondents comes out exclusively on Netflix around the world on April 29th.
Hope you like it.

Today, I've played tennis twice, written a new David Brent song & tried to explain freedom of speech on Twitter. Bath next then booze. Yay!
