BA Filmmaking Course

January 19, 2018

So NTU are starting a BA Hons Filmmaking course that I’ll be teaching on and talking about periodically about here. Applications are proving very strong. Starts in October of this year.

The focus is writing, producing and directing

Super excited to be teaching filmmaking for most of my week once it kicks in.

 


2015 in review

March 18, 2016

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 450 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 8 trips to carry that many people.

Disgrace

February 27, 2015

Working through films that I’ve recorded over the years on my set top box and not gotten around to seeing so last night was Disgrace.

John Malkovich played the main character and I didn’t recognise any of the supporting players. Not read JM Coetzee’s Booker-prize winning book that the film was based on but film felt very disjointed and hard for me to get into and I guess it’s one of those books that was super complex to adapt as a film.

Music Biographies

February 22, 2015

By coincidence got three music biographies from library recently

Prince Biography

Prince Biography

What A Wonderful World Louis Armstrong Biog

What A Wonderful World Louis Armstrong Biog

and

Morrissey&Marr_The Severed Alliance

Morrissey&Marr_The Severed Alliance

Read the Prince one over the weekend and it was much better than I thought, especially on the last 10/15 years. Now onto the Louis Armstrong one. Riccardi’s thesis is that Armstrong was unfairly popped at by critics in his later years and that critics either hadn’t followed his career or were wilfully using their ennui to have a go. The Morrissey/Marrs one I saw when I was returning the Prince one. Never a Smiths fan but it looked good so figured why not.
