Impatience....

Why do things take so long to materialise? 

Take the above featured giant snail. When I first say this particular creature, it was curled up in a shoe box in someone's house in Norwich on a freezing day during December 2008. It took at least two weeks for it to emerge from its shell - and that was after being coaxed. Imagine how long it would have taken naturally?

I must admit, I'm feeling rather impatient. I had a really successful shoot up in Gateshead, but once I boarded the train back to London I became very frustrated and impatient at the thought that I (nor anybody else for that matter) will not be seeing the finished film until 2010. I'm also frustrated and impatient that I have not got a TV series yet, despite writing six different programme treatments that production companies actually liked.

But hey, I can't complain. I'm in a great position that can only get better. Maybe Mr Snail's got it right, because his whole vibe is: It will all happen in good time.

I always say 'patience pays off' particularly when birding but I can understand your frustration. Try to stay positive & believe it will happen for you.

Why is not being shown for 10 months?

It's all to do with scheduling. They shoot the majority of their wildlife pieces between April and October thereafter there is a dearth of filming activity.

Therefore they stockpile the films deemed to be not seasonal for broadcast then. My Kite film falls into that category.

We want to see it now! Frustrating for us to have to wait too - hang in there - it will happen - just have to wait for the right moment! Just got to keep chipping away
