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

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

…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

Wingless

Our new film. That is, Wingless Films, the collaboration between myself and Jim Elton. We’ve been doing the amateur short film thing for a few years now, so check out the back catalogue. There’s more to come. 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
