ABSTRACT
An interview with director Dean Hawison, lead actor Richard Falkner and co-producer Ruth Korver of the film "How to Meet Girls From a Distance" which won Ant Timpson's no-budget V8 48 Hours film-making competition is presented. When asked how they managed to make the film in such a short and with a small budget, they attributed it to people who volunteered after they asked for help through Facebook. They add that the script was also written for a low-budget project.
