80 ton bird nest

“The Clemson Clay Nest was a public land art installation by Bavarian artist Nils-Udo that was constructed in the botanical gardens at Clemson University in South Carolina in 2005. The nest was built with the assistance of numerous students and other volunteers using 80 tons of pine logs harvested from the local Oconee County pine plantation and hundreds of bamboo stocks that were carefully organized into a circular structure dug in gardens rich red clay. After two years the piece was eventually dismantled and the mulched trees were used to partially fill the large hole. You can see many more of the work in these photos by Dylan Wolfe.”

Pisss

This trailer’s for a behind the scenes expose of the shoot for Jennifer Lynch‘s third feature, ‘Hisss‘. I’ve never seen her work and ‘Hisss’ doesn’t appeal at all, but there’s a car crash quality to this documentary that makes me want to watch it, albeit with a little bit of sick in my mouth.

Winston Lives!

… for now.

Matt Berry is a very nice man indeed, who has very kindly recorded his narration for Scott Garrett’s The Death Of Winston Pickle.

Now for the rest of it …

Excited

At this moment I’m uploading the audio OMF to Attic to begin sound mixing.

I do still need to trim 14 seconds from the running time to bring it under the Holy barrier that is the 15 minute mark, but handing this over feels like the first of the very final stages, so it’s exciting – for me anyway.

I’m now contemplating how to best release it, which is ahead of myself but some sort of planning will be necessary.

Being so low key & sombre, it’s certainly not the sort of film to catch light in any sort of viral way, but putting it online is certainly an option and, in all honesty, an easy one that will mean I can simply wrap it up and chuck the links around to see what bites. it would also mean, timing wise, I could at least try and wring some mileage out of Kate’s being in the heavily hyped Prometheus coming out in a few months.

Having said that though, the festival circuit does appeal, it’s viewers are more industry orientated which was the purpose of the exercise in the first place, and it would be nice to have it shown on at least a couple of big screens. But I find the festival process laborious, in some cases expensive, and so long winded that it puts me off, it would also mean I’d have to hide it under my (balding) bushel on the slim off chance it’d be selected (the rough cut was rejected by 100% of the festivals I entered halfway through last year).

Having said that, but , if, then again, but I suppose, the thing is, but then again, but what if (rpt ad infinitum)
