Re: Film Music

I've seen that series on the history of music for Cinema Tim and I agree that it is excellent. I'd already spotted Mark Kermode's new series so that is definitely on my "must watch" list

Re: Data protection Act

Re Data Protection I came across an article in the Sunday Times last Sunday concerning the new "General Data Protection Regulation" which comes into force on 25th May. The objective of this new piece of EU Legislation is to protect individuals from having their personal details misused by ...

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Tim's comment about there being more of a buzz at this year's BIAFF is interesting and I'd noticed this myself. I've been attending the festival since 1983 and looking back I think that one thing that helps to enhance the lively atmosphere is a good lounge area where we can all congregate for our te...

Re: BIAFF 2018 AT HARROGATE

Here's a funny thing. As you know I was one of the Saturday Projectionists so I had already seen all the films I was showing when I checked to make sure that everything was working ok. The funny thing was that I actually found myself enjoying the films better on the day. Maybe something to do with t...

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Should be ok for me but as I'm on projection duties I might not be able to stay for long

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Re the get together at the bar. I'm projecting on the Saturday so will need to keep a clear head but suspect I'll be in need of something restorative afterwards! You will probably find me lying in a darkened room, somewhere very quiet. As to the results, I didn't enter a personal film this year but ...

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

I've just watched Howard-Smith's "Goose Sauce" on the BIAFF web-site. Brilliant farce, terrific script, great acting and razor sharp editing, especially at the end! Comedy on film is difficult enough to get right, but farce is even harder as the genre is so dependant in getting the pacing ...

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend and the chance to catch up with film-making friends old and new. Of the Diamond awards my favourite was "Vermijo" closely followed by "Exploding Hearts", "Fridgemania" and "Well Done". Of the 5 star films shown on Sunday,...

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

My list of favourites more or less matches Howards and I also very much enjoyed Fridgemania, Once Upon a Dream and The Interview. Vermijo is a wonderful achievement and I thought that the photography in this film was particularly good, both in the exterior and interior sequences. The whole event was...

Re: BIAFF 2017 Results

I couldn't agree more with Michael, Dave and Jill and having been round the proverbial competition block, both in film and photographic competitions, many times over the years I long ago developed the hide of a Rhinoceros when it comes to judges comments or markings. My philosophy with competitions ...
