Death Duties

I was really shocked to the core to learn of the unexpected and much too early death of Paul Clipson, filmmaker, projectionist, cinephile, Shadowplayer and friend.

Geography meant I only got to meet Paul twice, when he was in Scotland for family reasons, but we corresponded semi-regularly and he always had nice things to say. His own films are beautiful, hand-made in-camera lightshows that transform everyday scenes — cities, forests, water — into Kubrickian tunnels of light and phantasmal dreamstuff.

There is a fund you can donate to, to support his partner, Yelena. Go here.


Paul’s Vimeo channel. Watch the films, then give.
