The Daniel Connection Charity Event:
With the kind permission of distributor California Pictures The Daniel Connection was shown in Southport, England at the Atkinson cinema in the city centre. The event was well attended with the picture house almost full despite the opening night of the latest Jurassic Park film down the road.
Proceeds were set aside for The Queenscourt Hospice and Studio Scotland was pleased to be able to deliver a cheque for £649.20.
A Word From Alex Salmond:
"I never did make it to the Cannes Film Festival in my entire time as First Minister. More's the pity, says Mrs Salmond! Now I hear that another Scottish film - this time already a full feature is winning plaudits from the reviewers. The Daniel Connection (12) was screened to buyers at Cannes last Friday. The film received consistent 5* audience reviews at its preview. It is an example of world class film making from a Scottish film production company working in Scotland. The apocalyptic thriller features Californian multi-talent Morgan Carberry is quite an achievement from a Scottish independent film maker. Getting to Cannes took blood, sweat, tears."
The Daniel CONNECTION Premier in Edinburgh:
Opening to a full house at Cineworld - we could not have hoped for a better response and who better than the audience to tell you what they felt.
“What a truly incredible film! Gripping from the start, it drew the viewer in… first class cinematography with a soundtrack which kept the audience in a state of tension and expectancy - excellent!”
As the audience filed out of the theatre, comments were captured on camera…
"Gripping, Stunning, Fantastic, Wonderful, Challenging, Thought-provoking..!"
Go behind the scenes and see for yourself a short overview of the night with audience reactions and a an interview with the film’s director. Short Premiere Film.
A huge thank you to all who made the trip to attend the event – especially those who came from as far as Sweden, London, Aberdeen and around the UK.

California Pictures Inc. Acquires Distribution Rights – Sept 1st 2014:
The Daniel CONNECTION has been acquired by California Pictures Inc. based in Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Here is a quote from sales director Ashleigh Hubbard.
"The Daniel CONNECTION for me is one of a kind in that it will affect people differently in some way at the end of the film, which is powerful… it changes the conversation. Change in life is powerful and bad or good it always moves life forward… this film will affect everyone in different ways. Not a film anyone can forget that's for sure… those are the best kind of films"

Deborah Forrest: Cannes Film Festival Report
There have been some great films this year - but there have been some not so good and downright dire too...
My highlights of this festival...
Met the 'director' with the dubious soubriquet of worst film maker in the world... Saw the 4K re-mastered 3D version of The Last Emperor in the presence of the great director Bernardo Bertolucci who was in a wheelchair - and wearing his hat as always... Read more
Adele Cross: Exec Producer for The Daniel CONNECTION
When asked by Studio Scotland to come on board as Executive Producer for their new feature film, The Daniel CONNECTION, with attending Cannes Film Festival as my first obligation, it was a reasonably easy decision to make. I relished the opportunity to experience the famous festival from the inside. We are all familiar with the famous images of the stars walking up the red carpet and ascending the iconic steps and associate it with glamour, sunshine and fabulousness... Read more
