Hi Scribey peeps!
Hope you all had a great bank holiday. Yep, cheers, I did.
Last post I told you I was going to the "Shorts::Cut '09 screening @ No.3"
It was a great night. I met loads of talented local peeps, swapped some biz cards and chatted plot points and reversals over a nice glass of wine.
And we got to watch, and then vote on, some great films. All the films were good, from talented future names.
The best were, i.m.h.o.:-
Bloody Daisies - directed by David White. (Comedy) Two men are sent to a blind date with the same woman, but there's only room for one man in her life. Who will she choose? And why does she need a spade? (4 minutes)
A fun comedy-horror full of really great SFX and trick, sharply edited camera work.
Pesticide - directed by Cameron Kerr. (Animation) Has Bob's computer been possessed by a malicious virus intent on persuading him to commit murder, or is it his own subconscious trying to tell him otherwise? - 6 minutes
A clever comedy animation that must have taken ages to film.
Mark - directed by James Harrison. (Documentary) Professional BMX rider and local resident mark Webb ignores medical advice after breaking his back, and travels to China to compete in the international X-Games 10 minutes.
A good natured doc of an amazing local guy who overcame all odds (and a broken bike as well as a broken back to win the x games in China
It's got me all fired up for the 48hr film challenge
Can't wait for the next screenings!
