The Circle is complete.

Clearly nothing to do with film making, but instead some inspiration as to what you can achieve if you put your mind to it. Andy Bainbridge is the Graphic Degree course leader at Preston, and he decided to nigh on single handedly construct a contradictory edifice to the beauty of nature.

Good news?

I do hope this proves to be a good thing, though Cameron’s words still echo.

More here too.

Update

I’m aware that without being able to show clips of work in progress it’s nigh on impossible to give any insight into the process the films going through – it’d be great to show before and after versions of scenes, along with rushes etc to really show the paring down process, but clearly that’s not going to happen until maybe its been out and done the rounds for sometime. What I can say is that having a break, and then returning with fresher (but just as baggy) eyes has been really bloody beneficial. Read the rest of this entry »

Another day another track …

Just sorting out usage for another Max Richter track, this time with Rumon Gamba and the BBC Philharmonic, called Laika’s Journey. Another beautiful, quiet little track that manages to be -in context- both magical and slightly creepy, and for which I can’t imagine finding a replacement quite as fitting, so thats lucky eh?

UPDATE: Got usage gratis for a year. This is good news.

The Jury is in …

I’ve had feedback from all but one now, and its surprisingly okay.

Very insightful, though largely issues I was aware -but in denial- of, so all good. It’s a weird old thing hearing what people make of it at this stage, I don’t think I’ve ever actually had this situation – usually its a promo for a track, or an ad for a car, something else being the main event – so it’s odd not have that to fall back on/blame in a way. It’s certainly been acutely embarrassing – but nice too … so long as it’s relatively liked that is … and not vilified, protested against, banned and copies collected and burnt in vast piles whilst being declaimed as ‘a little bit shit’.

Even then I would probably blame the cast.

They were really, really shit though.
