Interesting article in today’s Guardian newspaper on Monsters film due for its uk release next friday. Posits the argument that it may be a game changer. Doubt it as Director Edwards has a particular and specific skillset that can’t be industrialised.
Go see the film if you get the chance.

Seeing Monsters today at the Mayhem Horror Festival.
Film is followed by a q&A session with Director Gareth Edwards.

Edwards is also delivering a Masterclass in the evening. Not sure what the crack is here but I imagine he’ll deconstruct a number of scenes from the film.

Nottingham’s annual Mayhem Horror Film Festival opens at the end of the month. The festival was conceived and is run and programmed by filmmakers Chris Cooke, Steven Sheil and animator Gareth Howell. This year it hosts Monsters Director Gareth Edwards. Edwards himself is hosting a BAFTA masterclass as well an a q&a after the showing of his debut feature film as Director. The film was made on a very low budget. See here for a featurette on the slashfilm site for how the look was achieved on such a low budget.
