"Copy Shop was made with printed out paper - the whole film was animated like a flip book. Every film was filmed with a digital video camera then printed out and reanimated. We did this to save shooting on 35mm or 16mm and it turned out to be a nice way to make the film look the way it does." -Virgil Widrich on CopyshopI found this film while browsing through my copy of the european cinema 16 (which I managed to find in a charity shop for £1.99 BARGAIN!) and it blew me away. Such an ingenious idea done in such a creative way. It's films like this that make want to be a filmmaker so much.

This exhibition focusing on the work of the prolific Lou Dorfsman at Kemisty is definitely the best thing I've seen at the festival by a long shot. I went in not knowing that much about Dorfsman and came out completely in love with is work and desperate to see more. The centrer piece of the show is a scale reproduction of the infamous Gastrotypographicalassemblage wall from the CBS cafeteria but what impressed me most were his print adds for the company. Their so sophisticated and smart and beautiful and I want them on my wall!

After quite a few attempts I've finally got one of my messages written by the outrace robots. Tomorrow is my last shift at trafalgar square with them and I'll kind of miss them to be honest. I'm planning to do a full set of posts later on in the week chronicling all the event's I actually manage to get to for the festival, which hopefully should be a lot.

I made this short animation with Kathryn last night. We spent probably about an hour filming and it was really fun. The editings a bit sloppy because I decided to use iMovie 08 for the first time in my life which is a terrible excuse for a piece of software, but other than that I'm pretty pleased with it. The music we used is The Edwardians Begin To Enjoy Themselves by Moon Wiring Club.

I'm catching up with season 3 of the brilliant drama Mad Men at the moment and I just found these really brilliant on set photographs from the show, There's something really surreal about seeing Don with an iPhone or Cambell larking around with a macbook. Also the last photo of all the "On Camera Luck Strikes" is priceless. The whole set photographed by James Minchin over on rolling stone is well worth a look, if purely for the lovely photography.
I've been up north for the last week meeting the ladys family. I had a lovely time in the peace and quite of the countryside and got to experiment and play around with my camera a lot. unfortunately I managed to lose about two thirds of the photos I took because of a corrupted memory stick :( but these are my favourites from the ones I took.
