Fools that they are, Forbidden Planet International handed me a video camera and told me to venture out and start filming comic creators in their natural habitats: studios, bedrooms, pubs, the job centre, etc. Eager to show them how poorly versed in all areas of filmmaking I am, I sportively obliged.
In this first episode, the fearless Karrie Fransman jumps into the questionably-lit fray. She exclusively (but furtively) reveals her next project at the end of the video: The Death of the Artist. We’d previously chatted about the project at Angouleme 2013 and, without saying too much, it should definitely be one of the most ambitious projects you’ll have ever seen in comics when it drops in 2014.
I’m bummed not be able to go to the Felt Mistress workshop at Pick Me Up today. Here’s the promo I bodged up last year for Louise and Jonathan’s gigantic art book with Blank Slate.
Another trailer I did, this time for James Harvey (then known as HARVEYJAMES) for his Blank Slate book A Long Day of Mr James-Teacher. James’ buddy Matthew Schneeman did the music.
PS) I really love Matthew’s short film Runners on Youtube. More people should watch that.
Blast from the past. A video game-inspired book trailer for Nick Edwards’ Dinopopolous from 2011. Michael Deforge was awesome enough to let me use his midi creations for for music. The pizza icon at 00:16 is making me reconsider my diet.
This weekend, I’ll be interviewing Jack Teagle, Richard Short, Luke Pearson, Will Morris, JAKe, Nick Edwards, Andre Diniz, Kristyna Baczynski, Rob Davis & I.N.J. Culbard at the inaugural ELCAF in Shoreditch. See you there?
One for all my friends being slowly digested in the belly of the beast that is comics.
