The Room of Ideas

It’s funny where you get your ideas from. And by “funny”, I mean perfectly logical and reasonable. That’s the thing about developing a certain self-reflexivity towards your writing; you can see where the connections have been made. Not all the time, of course, but there have been moments over the past few days when I’ve … Continue reading

An Itch in Time – the unreleased music

An Itch in Time is the film that never was. For now, all that remains of the film are twenty-six tracks of music created for Ben’s travels in time. Continue reading

Latitude Festival, Part 3

Having trounced an invite for tea by sleeping in till midday, we instead wandered off for breakfast in the pouring rain. We ended up taking shelter by the food truck, and dashing between cover, usually cowering in the Word Arena tent. Fortunately, this was where Adam Ant flounced onto stage, dressed for all the world … Continue reading

Latitude Festival, Part 2

We had tea in the morning. Which sounds civilized, but being a newbie, I’d overlooked packing things like… cups, so my makeshift drinking vessel was a Pot Noodle (Sticky Rib) pot. No matter how much I washed it, my poor tea was infused by an extract of ribs. On the plus side, the supermarket (One … Continue reading

Latitude Festival, Part 1

My First Festival. I’ve been to concerts and gigs, but not a festival. I was expecting mud and music. There were other things in between. I’m not writing my memoirs here, so let’s keep to the fallback beloved by Powerpoint presenters everywhere — the bullet-point list. Except without bullet points. Here’s Latitude Festival 2011. Saw … Continue reading

Just a Whole Bunch of Music

I do music. Not necessarily very well or professionally, but I do it anyway. Here’s a rundown of new and new(ish) stuff. “Stuck” and “Midian Melody” are the latest. More like demos, really; both piano-y things, the second having occured while I was mucking about trying to get Yesterday. “Captain Quay” has a bit of … Continue reading

The American Journey

Our American journey is over.

It’s strange to be at a point where Spirit of the Frontier, our epic homage to the western genre, is now something we are looking back on, rather than anticipating. The film has come together better than I could have hoped, considering this is our biggest and most ambitious film to date. A lot could have gone wrong. It didn’t. Continue reading

Limey

Have you seen the short film Wingless? How about the sci-fi two-parter Capsule? Well, Limelight Awards certainly have. Both films have been nominated in the Limelight Film & Arts Awards 2011, which is great news. Well, actually Capsule Part 2 was nominated rather than Part 1, but we had to submit them separately. It’s the … Continue reading

What Can You Pla-ay?

Music news. I’m not a musician. I can’t compose; I can’t read music, and I certainly can’t write it. What I can do is fiddle around with my M-Audio keyboard, then fiddle around some more with Ableton Suite 8, until I get something that at least isn’t off-key all the way through. It’s worked okay … Continue reading

Video Killed the Radio Star, YouTube Killed the Video Star

I have a vlog. Here it is. Why? Boredom, mostly, which is largely why most vlogs get started, I guess. This one’s about THE NEW FILM, and it’s got some other stuff in it. Oh, just watch it. I feel daft summarizing a vlog. But, filming happens next week (Monday, unless there’s lightning) so hopefully … Continue reading
