While you're all waiting here's an appropriate short film which is also a drip drip drip scenario.
My OH Brian just included it in a quick blog entry about scary shorts, here - I don't mean frightening underwear, yeah? You're all film buffs, you know what I mean Mind you, when I first got together with Brian, he did indeed have a very scary collection of middle-age man 70s porn star style Y-Fronts which instantly went in the bin!
Now, Bry spends a lot of time watching adventure fillums coz he's the assistant programmer for both the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival and the Kendal Mountain Film Festival, and he's also a rock and ice climber (and mtber) so I guess he has a feeling for....um...terror. Well, he's been with me for seven years and that's scarier than any adventure sport, I can tell you.
The first film he's posted on his blog is a little known 1996 short called Drip. I think this is its IMDB listing. It's absolutely textbook Hitchcock and is brilliant.
The second one I'm sure nearly all of you will have seen; it's the opening scene from The Twilight Zone - the movie. It's been widely emulated on the net in various little files people send each other but this is the original and it's still a classic.
We watched both of these YouTubes on Bry's blog the other day on the big PC monitor with the speakers turned right up, with my 13 year old lad stood between us.
He was scared.
So...just a little interlude whilst we wait for the main show to begin.
Podcast host An Author’s Dreams. insta @judeauthor & @authorsdreamspod My interview with Gavin Clark - bit.ly/2wwz0yV
Have just completed the Edit for screening purposes. Gonna talk to Mark on Friday about possible dates etc. Will probably be december. Those who have contributed to the DVD Fan commentary will automatically get an invite and the remaining seats will be allocated based on various things such as number of posts, if you are attractive or not and how long your gums are.
Brilliant news! Not that I qualify for this on any counts...
Still, really looking forward to the film (and the DVD commentary!) with no small degree of excitement. Best of luck with the screening Shane, and all the best to everyone whose able to attend. Lucky (OK, and very deserving) sods that you are! ;D
London's always a pain to get to... More so to get back from! Missed the Somers Town Q&A and Gavin Clark set, and most of the showing of the 2nd series of Spaced at the BFI Spaced event coz of last train malarky!
