Production Topic: You Cant Polish A Malcolm UPDATED 7/12/11

edited December 2011 in Filmmaking
"You Can't Polish A Malcom" Is a short comedy film that I am producing (As well as Cinematography,sound and editing). It see's Malcolm, a 20 year old Toilet salesman , on his quest to loose his virginity, begrudgingly accepting help from his "man-whore" Friend Jonathan. The film is Currently in Production and will be released around January - February time.
Il be posting various behind the scenes stuff over the coming weeks, keeping everyone up to date on the production.
So let me know what you think guys.
We will be in production next week, shooting some beach scenes. Where trying to do the easier shots first, as a warm up to the more difficult sequences. We will be releasing a behind the scenes video shortly.
Today we shot the opening scene for YCPAM, here's some Quick frame grabs from today's shoot. We will also be releasing a behind the scenes video with in the next two weeks.


  • Sounds potentially fun, in a Judd Apatow kind of way. A couple of things not related to the film but which you might want to fix: Malcom is spelt 'Maclom' on the post, and the poster is missing an apostrophe with "can't". Also, I think Malcolm is usually spelt with two ls.
    Look forward to the trailer!
