The new Believer is out, the film issue, and I’m in it. Or a little piece of my brain-exhalations is in it. My theme (suggested by Ed the ed), is title sequences, which are always fun to think about.

My multi-award winning short film CRY FOR BOBO, is now online at BBC Film Network here, so UK residents can hopefully see it. Not sure about the rest of you — if somebody could check and let me know, that’d be great. I took it off YouTube while we were wooing the BBC (who helped pay for it, so didn’t need too much persuading, but did take a while) but maybe I’ll have to arrange some kind of foreign outlet for it…
Meanwhile, my new article in the Forgotten series is up at the Auteurs’ Notebook .
Leave comments on the article over there, and comments on the film over here.
Totally failed to notice that Moving Image Source’s Moments of 2008 has gone online, with me in it (as a contributor, not as a moment, alas). I now find myself in a piece along with Guy Maddin, Jonathan “J-Ro” Rosenbaum, Karina Longworth, regular Shadowplayer Christoph Huber, Mark Peranson, David Hudson and many other luminaries. As Shirley MacLaine says in SWEET CHARITY, “I’m the only one here I never heard of!”
In keeping with the opening title theme, this is a shot from the start of Juraj Herz’s MORGIANA. Because Herz always gives good title.
