Shot Edited Uploaded Burnt

Archie and Hazel made this film today with my help . I play a mad professor ( typecaste or what?) who finds something alarming in his lunch. They had the idea after watching an amusing silent short at the BFI archive/ viewing room thingy at MOMI on the South Bank in London when we were last there. Archie also plays the uke soundtrack and Hazel did all the costumes. It only took a couple of hours to do from scratch and now it's on YouTube- ah, the miracles of the digital cameras, editing software and the interweb!

This morning I walked into town to have a look at the monthly library sale. I bought two DVD's for a couple of quid - the recent "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" and a Jim Henson Prods. film I'd not heard of before. It's called "Mirrormask" with one of the R's turned round the other way like "Toys "R" Us"! Mostly CGI and not puppets by the look of it.

Hi Treena, nice of you to drop by. We should make more films really as they are fun to do and don't take all that long - not ours anyway! I don't think Stephen Speilberg will be worried just yet!
Hope you get some time off from cleaning to do some fun stuff too before the end of Summer.
