Pottsy project update: An Ideal Wife
Philip Saville has developed a feature film called Ideal Wife in which an estranged husband, played by Andrew-Lee Potts, orders a gift for himself — and it comes packaged in the shape of Shee (Camilla Arfwedson , above brunette).
His wife, played by Jeany Spark(above blonde), isn’t too happy about it when she returns to the marital home and finds Shee.
Saville has so far completed just one-third of Ideal Wife.
He and his wife Nina, who produced it, are hoping to interest investors to help them complete the project as a film or a three-part TV series.
Will share more information as it becomes available.

Poor English,I love Andrew Lee Potts!
Looks like the results for the Little Links competition are in. Congratulations to the following for winning the top prizes. There’s one contest left, good luck to everyone and hopefully we’ll hear something soon.
For the Little Links picture contest, congratulations to Erin Allen. She sent in several pics so we’ll have to wait and see which was the winner.
For the Monitor review, Leith Macdonald took top honours for her review of the short film. Spot on and brilliantly done! Here’s her review.
Monitor, the latest short film from Keychain Productions, does what all the best and most memorable horror films do - it builds suspense and provides the frights without resorting to buckets of blood, dodgy special effects or cliched dialogue. You will be intrigued - and you will want to see more! Like Keychain’s earlier movie Bubblewrapped, Monitor is a very stylish piece of film-making achieved on a near-zero budget. Director Andrew Lee Potts has a great talent for using light and colour in unconventional ways. You wouldn’t expect a palette of baby blue, candy pink, orange and peppermint to work in this genre, but the odd shades are beautifully combined with the lighting to create a sense of unease that adds hugely to the suspense.
Monitor doesn’t have a lot of dialogue, and what it does have is used effectively and in the right places, to hint at the central mystery of the story without giving too much away. The small cast makes the most of their roles and Laura Carter as The Babysitter is entirely convincing playing a bored teenager who gradually becomes aware that something is very, VERY wrong.
If you watch this movie I suggest you do it in daylight - especially if you are a parent or have ever been a babysitter. Then be prepared to watch it again, and again, as you study the ending and reach your own conclusions about just what is going on in this house. Then join me in crossing your fingers and hoping for a sequel!

Posted with permission from our friend Jooles on twitter. For those that remember, Jooles received this hat from her friends as a present awhile back. It was actually worn by Andrew and auctioned off for charity. Today, she managed to get it signed. Well done Jooles (and thanks for letting us share). :)
With Gina McKee, Martin Jarvis, Josef Altin, Andrew Lee Potts.
By Any Means is up on IMDB now. Andrew’s new TV series.
Nice to see Andrew’s IMDB photos have been updated. (Hannah’s too) Too bad his projects haven’t. No Dracula and no By Any Means yet. :(
Filming ‘By Any Means’ - Birmingham City Centre
Ffs, I can’t even put a tripod down without security rushing me let alone a friggin’ train track.
shall we start playing a game called spot the Pottsy? I’ll do my best to find more pics from the set, you all do your best to spot Pottsy. Deal?
With thanks to BBCOne for the photo, here’s our first look at Andrew in ‘By Any Means’
I want to think that Tom Tom is who Connor would’ve grown up to be if he hadn’t had that whole dinosaur issue crop up.
(Though actually, this whole show sounds a lot like the Leverage team if they were cops instead of cons. Which probably makes him more like Alec Hardison.)
there’s a fic in there somewhere… ^_^
Finally got to meet Hannah Spearritt and Andrew Lee Potts. They were both so lovely and easy to talk to. I couldn’t get any decent pictures as my camera is rather rubbish and it was so crowded in there that I couldn’t just stop to take photos :-(
(ignore my face and my fringe, but omg!)
Seriously the best day ever, I’m so happy!
You both look lovely. Congratulations. :)
