I was commissioned to make this documentary in spring 2009 for Current TV, as part of their season of films around the notion of a quarter-life crisis. I was about to turn 30 and was in a reflective mood.
This is the blurb from the current website:
“10 years ago I GENUINELY believed that by the time I was 30 I would have made my first million. It’s now looking increasingly unlikely, what went wrong?” This is the million pound question. James Bayliss-Smith is now 29. As a skint film-maker the prospect of earning a million is looking increasingly unlikely and he would like to know why he was so wildly optimistic 10 years ago.
