international Conference Cinema: Technology, Art, Communication 2013

March 28, 2013

Yesterday my ‘Marvelisation” Paper got accepted into the International Conference Cinema: Technology, Arts, Communication 2013 in Avanca, Portugal. Hoping now get money together to go and present paper for its inclusion in the book that is published following the conference.
Done variery of reading and writing the paper up now. Need to do more on Disney and Star Wars and timeliness of paper’s topic makes this easy enough.
I think we’re heading for a new, dominant period of Disneyfication in Hollywood cinema over the next decade, two decades and paper adopts this position as its thesis.

I’m not particularly a Disney fan but I am a Gabler fan after reading An Empire of Their Own his book on how Jewish immigrants to America created the Movie Business.

That’s one of the great things about libraries isnt it, reading books that you wouldnt necessarily spend money on buying.


Lion King

August 15, 2009

Went to see The Lion King at the Lyceum theatre in the West End. Fantastic show. Never seen a musical theatre piece because never really been all that interested but this show was really good. The puppetry, singing and dancing was of a really high standard. Director Julie Taymor has done a super job. I know the show is years old and all of this has all been said before but it doesn’t hurt to repeat it.
The Lyceum was the home of Irving and Terry so I also enjoyed being in such a historical venue.
