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

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

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

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

What’s It All About

…when you get right down to it? Have a lovely fake rant for your lovely sunny afternoon. Continue reading

…Even Though All It’s Famous for Is a Prison

Dartmoor is beautiful. Look at that photo. We found that isolated reservoir after taking a little, inobtrusive side-road just before those vast expanses that look more like Colorado than South West England. Continue reading

…Like I’d Never Been Away

There’s this story, right? Doctor Who is coming back, which means we’ll all be scratching our heads over wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey mishaps for the next seven weeks. And that’s either the right climate for the script I’m writing, or it’s absolutely the wrong one. Continue reading
