Invisible Bullets is a two minute movie directed by Chris Lane of Bog Standard fame (click here) and is the running for The Virgin Media Shorts Award which offers twelve filmmakers the chance to have their movie exhibited on 214 cinema screens. One lucky winner will also win £30,000 to make their next film.

Invisible Bullets sees Jimmy, an avid shoot 'em-up game fanatic and Clint Eastwood wannabe, experience his gaming world turn into reality - which includes a Mexican standoff with Stan, the garden gnome.

The film is full of top special effects and has already shot into the top ten rankings on the Virgin Media Shorts website, as well as gaining an entry into the Encyclopedia of Weird Westerns

"When I first showed the script to a couple of people eyebrows were raised, and they did question how I was going to make a milk bottle 'explode' and leave a beer bottle 'decimated'" says Chris Lane "In truth I didn't know."

Chris has experience of working for Future Shorts, Arts About Manchester and BBC Blast and is currently in pre-production on a fan enabled feature film, an idea that was first exhibited at the CUBE gallery in Manchester.

"In the North West there is a creative and social movement, which is being referred to as the North West New Wave" Chris explains, urging everyone to help him put local film makers on the map

"The Virgin Media Shorts competition is heavily reliant on viewings, ratings and comments" he says "So I would like to encourage one and all to watch, vote and comment on our entry."

We'll let you know how Chris gets on.

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
