My Life At 40 has been selected for Intermix 06 by Pavilion.

Blurb says:
‘Intermix, now in its fifth year, is Pavilion’s annual programme of contemporary artists’ film and video. Intermix06 is scheduled to coincide with the Leeds International Film Festival.
This year Pavilion’s vision for the programme is the concept of the “Moment”’.

Intermix 06
6 – 12 November 2006

Monday 6 November – Round Foundry Media Centre, Leeds: 6pm-8pm
7 November – Round Foundry Media Centre, Leeds: 12noon-2pm and 3pm-5pm
8-12 November – BBC Big Screen Millennium Square, Leeds: 10am-11am and 2pm-3pm


Unfortunately I’ve been censored for the BBC Big Screen – BBC watchdogs branded the animal and cutout sex scenes too saucy and spicy to show in a public place – the local residents might get a taste for it! – so instead there’s a black screen saying ‘This scene has been censored at the request of the BBC.’ Hahahahahaha – what about those nature documentaries I want to know!?

My Life At 40 in DOKFEST Leipzig

49th Leipzig Festival of Documentary and Animated Film Germany
30 October – 5 November 2006

‘Films that are not easily categorised are presented in Leipzig for this very reason: True stories combined with animation techniques – reality is not only where we expect it to be, and it can have many different faces. For the eleventh time, Leipzig presents “documentary animated” films. New, short-films with decidedly documentary contents will be screened in two different programme blocks. Presented productions require the audience to give up on prevailing aesthetic perceptions of documentary and animated film. If able to do so, viewers will perceive an imaginative and illusionary reality – the reality of drawings, puppets, or 3D-computer animated figures and other animation film characters. They are protagonists of the imaginary worlds of authors and their respective realities. AnimaDoc is a journey to the imaginative border between documentary genre and fiction. An exciting trip to new aesthetic terrain.’

Adventures of John and John in Trinidad and Tobago

Posted by Will at 19:51, October 15th, 2006

‘The Adventures of John of John’ has won another prize, this time ‘Best Student Film’ at the Trinidad and Tabago Film Festival. I don’t know if I get one of those big cardboard cheques, or a statuette or anything this time.
I think that big cardboard cheques and statuettes are a nice touch myself, but I await notification.

All the best,
