1001 Movies To See Before I Kill You
Not really, of course. That would make for an excessively long blog post and an excessively long kill list.
No, I had the title in mind and couldn’t think of a use for it, and wanted to make a quick announcement about forthcoming attractions on Shadowplay, but didn’t have a title for it, and so…
The month of November sees me relocate to Dublin (if my paymasters at Edinburgh College of Art approve: still waiting for final confirmation on that one but it seems likely) for the post-production of NATAN (still waiting for final title to materialise). So that month may see Shadowplay turn into an extended edit log. No, I wouldn’t do that to you, but there may be lighter posting, including regular updates on the film if I can find anything to say about it that’s not a spoiler or libel.
More excitingly for you, December will see the third installment of THE LATE SHOW: The Late Films Blogathon, in which I invite all you wonderful people out there in the dark to write about late and last films by beloved directors, producers, screenwriters, performers, nation-states (what was Yugoslavia’s last film?)… It’s a bijou affair, mainly because I don’t shout about it enough, but that might be a good, easy way to fill the blog in November, so maybe we can have a bigger party this year. Festivities start on Saturday, December 1st, and last all week.
