Modern Love Q&As

February 14th, Valentine’s Day, and what better day to release a contemporary love story Modern Love. Ten years in the making filmmaker Simon Aitken valiantly ploughed on never giving up hope that his film would cross the finishing line, and it has! And audiences in the UK and the United States can watch the film via Amazon Prime.  For anybody embarking on making an independent film, tenacity is key, you have to do it because you love it; and once you commit, you commit. Aitken has achieved a lot with Modern Love and it was my pleasure to moderate a series of Q&As with the cast and crew as they reminisce about the fun times they had working of the film.
