Ever wondered what the inside of David Ginola looks like? Ever wondered what the inside of David Ginola looks like? 30/9/2010

Evening all,

Who would have thought that our very own Ed would nip in and snatch the crown out of big brother's hands at the last moment, eh? Though personally I was confident he would win ever since he revealed this secret to me on a train to Reading during our climate roadshow in May.

Anyhow, even by my not-entirely-downbeat standards, I really am extremely over-excited to tell you that our Richard Curtis-written mini-movie, "No Pressure", is premiering right now on the front page of the Guardian website. (If it's off their site by the time you get this message, you can watch at: http://www.1010global.org/no-pressure )


The 4-minute mini-movie stars The X-Files' Gillian Anderson, together with Spurs players past and present - including Peter Crouch, Ledley King and David Ginola - and features music donated by Radiohead. It's a fairly simple and to-the-point premise, I'm sure you'll agree: we celebrate everybody who is actively tackling climate change... by blowing up those are aren't. So if you've ever wondered what the inside of David Ginola looks like, here's your chance to find out.

Everyone at 10:10 is completely blown away, pun intended, by the sterling efforts from our 40-person professional film crew [link to Tom's credit page when done], who all donated their time and equipment for free. Please, please, please, please forward the info at the bottom of this message to as many friends, pretend facebook friends, blogs and mailing lists as you possibly can manage without getting sacked from your job, as that's by far our best chance of going viral and waking a whole load more people up to the climate crisis. And if you could give it a mention (or even screen the film via youtube) at your church service/union meeting/school assembly/sports match, that'd be champion.

Thanking you all highly. And looking forward to seeing everybody in action next weekend for 10:10:10,
Franny

My event is just one of dozens of activities planed in the Maldives and thousands worldwide." (see his full message here).
