Yep!

Yep!

My love of subversive cinema that has often led me down some interesting depictions of said subject... In fact, I'll be producing some bawdy scenes for Dorian Gray!

Not really sure where this post is going or why I even started it though I really like the small amount of Nick Roeg's films I've seen so far. Walkabout started as a something of a curiosoty, and now after numerous rewatches I consider it really special, a magical piece of fillmmaking,

Also, this. Though I hardly clamour to Blade Runner like many others do (the numerous cuts make it needlessly convulted and bloated) I do wonder just what the limits of Hollywood are. Scary really.

Hey Tom - I'll come back with feedback on the talk-track this weekend - basically, it's all good - and the murder sequences are really earning their keep now. I remember showing Walkabout to you back in the first year - and it was met with stony silence... by 'you', I mean your year group - oh happy days...

hey Tom - I've been having some thoughts about additional style choices that might help you deal with some of the people based sequences in your film; namely the opium den scene and erotica sequences;

I was thinking you could appropriate the style and sound and even technique of the 'mutoscope' - the dates just about tally with the publishing date of the novel, and I think this use of 2d images - couched in a Maya world - might provide a genuine and rather charming visual device - see links below:

Phil: Thoe victorian photos are mazing :D. It's so facinating looking at photos from that era because it heps give a really strong image of what the time was like :)
