Play Date

Now's as good a time as any to remind you about Shadowplay, one of the best and most original cinema blogs out there. Not least because David Cairns has declared today "Shadowplay Day", a blatant, shameless attempt to boost his blog stats by the simple expedient of asking people to publicise it for him! And guess what, it's working.

Here's one of my fave posts.

Yay! for Ben Wheatley and Michael Smiley et al who won a whole heap load of awards at Fright Fest for their film Kill List.

I know I've banged on about it before alarmingly (I'm biased as I'm in it for a fleeting, brutal moment) but, on seeing it again the other night in the MASSIVE screen one of the Empire, Leicester Square (pictured, badly, above) I can confirm its general brilliance. All two of you should rush to see it immediately.

V Is For Vagary

Been tinkering with some rough as a roofer's glove test footage we shot out in Epping Forest the other day to see what it looks like with a grade slapped on it.

That's TV's Dave Armand, of course, trying out a few moves.

Light Work

More stuff you can watch and pretend you are working.

"Visions of Light" documentary. All about cinematography and that, innit.

Here it is again...

Also in said newsletter was this little claymation horror gem.

Recce Homos

Two grown men wandering around some woods looking for a secluded spot. Nothing untoward about that whatsoever.

Actually it's me and Dave Armand wandering around Epping Forest looking for locations for a short sketch that we will hopefully be shooting very shortly.

Writer's Rock

I have been writing a sample script which roughly translates as looking at the internet every five minutes.

Actually it means I've had to download a program that switches off your web connection and means you have to be a high level hacker to get it back on (slight exaggeration).

It does mean I can look at writery websites like this and say that I'm "working".
