I'm a massive Shane Meadows fan, especially TIE88 which I think climaxed with one of the best works in all of tv/cinema history. I'm inspired by filmmakers like Meadows, Aronofsky, and Richard Kelly among many others to become a filmmaker myself. But it's also a family thing, my grandfather was a photographer and owned a photographic shop, and I owe a lot of my interest in cinematography to him too. I've just finished A-Levels and want to start university in September to study film. I've thrown a short I just made up in the filmmaking section so if any of you want to check it out and leave my any feedback that would mean the world to me.
But in general, just wanted to say hello to everyone, I'm happy to be joining this community
Not in its entirety yet I fear, but I'm getting there!
I love most of Shane's work that I've seen so far, with one or two exceptions. For example I think Dead Man's Shoes loses its way, and I know that's an unpopular opinion, but I see it as more of a 20min short film dragged out to feature length. But I aim to be proved wrong on that one, by someone who has studied it much more closely than me and can explain to me why it is great
With the exception of Dead Man's Shoes I love everything I've seen. I think the high watermark is the 88 TV series of TIE, as that really stands out and shines in my mind.
