Congratulations to Paddy Considine, whose directorial debut TYRANNOSAUR has recently won awards at Sundance as well as the Moët British Independent Film Awards. Ferry Hunt spoke to Paddy earlier this year.
“Michel Ocelot astounds his audience with short stories perfect in length for toddlers or for adults of short attention span. By far the most apt and expert use of 3D I have seen, the delicate addition of a third dimension to a silhouette animation is analogous to the magic in the tales.” Ferry Hunt reviews TALES OF THE NIGHT at Brighton Film Festival.
“I take photos to show another world,” explains Steve Pyke, opening up his long awaited documentary MOONBUG, and with a subject of astronomy, you’d expect this to be quite fitting. Unfortunately, a documentary about space exploration it is not; it’s an astronomically claustrophobic look into the world of Steve Pyke.
Ferry Hunt reviews Steve McQueen’s controversial and challenging second feature SHAME, screened at Brighton Film Festival last night.
Hamish McAlpine appeared at CFF2011 to introduce a retrospective look at his production company TARTAN FILMS, which folded in 2008 but still offers a rich back catalogue of horror and art house film. Ferry Hunt spoke to Hamish at the festival.
