Tickets are now on sale for THE NORTHLEACH HORROR!

You can see it as part of a programme of shorts, in which I am delighted to be screening with a film by my friend Tracey Fearnehough, my fellow-teacher at Edinburgh College of Art, or you can see it with feature-length zombie safari movie THE REZORT, directed by another friend, Steve Barker. Charmingly, both NORTHLEACH and REZORT had their costumes designed by Alison Mitchell (another friend, naturally).

I’m also very excited about the fact that our world premiere is on June 17th, the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s little ghost-story party, at which Frankenstein was conceived.

The dead will walk again!

On Sale Now

Tickets are now on sale for POW!!! — the retrospective of comic-book-inspired movies programmed by Niall Greig Fulton and yours truly. I’m also starting to put together materials for Origin Story, the lecture/event/show we’re doing charting the whole history of live action comic book adaptation in the cinema. It’s long/richer/stranger than I thought — I didn’t realize until yesterday that the first screen drama, as well as the first screen comedy (same film), is a comic adaptation…

HIGHLANDER. screening as an anniversary event, sold out in a day, so you might want to move faster than a speeding bullet.

Creative Scotland announced today, in Cannes no less, that among the Scottish films screening at Edinburgh International Film Festival in June this year will be my own humble short, THE NORTHLEACH HORROR, starring Freddie Fox (pictured) and thin friend (also pictured). We’re all very excited!

Guess we’d better finish the damn thing now.
