Screenings and Shiz Reel

S'up people.  Friendly neighbourhood Spider-lad here.

Currently hard at work catching up on flicks, TV shows, and general re-writes leading up to hopefully some fun stuff in the summer.

Meantime, I've a few updates for you slappy-wags.

The music video for YOUR LITTLE FANTASY by BRAVER THAN FICTION is being screened at LANDED FESTIVAL at Doldowlod Hall, Powys, Wales on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of May 2014.

Its a bank holiday music festival with lots going on.  Check it out as well as the Facebook Page.  Really happy about this and the organisers really enjoyed the video.

There's also another screening on the 29th April at KINO SHORTS 48 for this month (clicky the link).  The venue is the THREE MINUTE THEATRE in Manchester and it kicks off at 7:15pm till 10:15pm.  I should be able to get down there, so if anyone wants to tag along, feel free.  You can buy me a drink.

Lastly...I've knocked up a muthafuppin' showreel.  Its now on the main page at the top so you can watch over and over again.  Let us know what you think if you're that way inclined.

Oh its below to....


See ya on the flip side...Danny.

Hello Me'Hearties,

What a week.  Well, personally its been a terrible week.  On a supposed holiday I was struck down with suspected food poisoning.  Bed ridden, toilet loving, and probably lost about a stone in weight.

Professionally, a contrast.  The launch night for the music video for YOUR LITTLE FANTASY by BRAVER THAN FICTION happened this Wednesday at the RIVERSIDE, SHEFFIELD.

I couldn't make it due to my illness and it was pretty depressing in all honesty.  After all that hard work and effort from both sides, to get hit by sickness and then unable to go to an event to celebrate it was gutting.

But hey, I've got to look forward.  From the feedback I've heard is that the night went spectacularly well and there's been a lot of good response to the video.

So anyway, enough chatting shit...here's the video below.

Enjoy and let me know what you think?

See ya on the flip side, Danny.

New Music Video Launch

Howdy folks, some interesting news.

It's been long while since we began pre-production on YOUR LITTLE FANTASY by BRAVER THAN FICTION, finishing production in October, and began post from there on.

But here we are. The finished product....

Not so fast.  If you wanna see it you'll have to wait a little bit longer.

The band are going to have a launch night on Wednesday 29th January at RIVERSIDE, SHEFFIELD from 9pm.

I'll be new to all this.  Depending on the turn out it should be good fun.  Either that or it'll be one man and his dog, but at least there will be alcohol involved.  So I'll be on the promotional trail trying to drum interest up on it.  Bookface and Twatter will get a hammering which is a warning to you people for the next few weeks.

Again all I can say is thanks to:
Rachelle Shaw, Ryan Meehan, Julia Bisby, Rob Harris, Sarah Walker, Ed Cartledge, Mel Lampro, Braver Than Fiction (the rest of the band), The Rutland Arms, the staff, and The Film Pool.
Follow these people:

Flicks of The Year 2013

Howdo.  Xmas is nearly upon us.  Die Hard, Gremlins, Long Kiss Goodnight, Lethal Weapon are on loop. And unlike most I tend to keep my end of the year lists until...well, right until the end of the year.  

So below is a list of flicks I dug this year.  Again no real order and it also contains flicks that I found rather memorable, some of which that weren't even that good :  

Trance - Danny Boyle
The World's End - Edgar Wright
This Is The End - Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg
Now You See Me - Louis Letterier
Django Unchained - Quintin Tarantino
Evil Dead - Fede Alvarez
A Place Beyond The Pines - Derek Cianfrance
Wreck It Ralph - Rich Moore
Filth - Jon S. Baird
Rush - Ron Howard
Gravity - Alfonso Curron
The Impossible - J.A Bayona
Only God Forgives - Nicolas Winding Refn
Alan Partridge : Alpha Papa - Declan Lowney
Motivational Growth - Don Thacker
Cloud Atlas - Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski
Pacific Rim - Guillermo del Toro
The Wolverine - James Mangold

Piss poor variety really but still some cracking films on there.  And you'd forget that a Superman film came out this year too (poor).    I do need to see more foreign language (although I did see a few but nothing great).  More updates soon.  Comment below or on the various social sites.

See ya on the flip side, Danny.

New Screening ahead

Hello. Just like buses, hey?

Quick update. Another Film in The Woods is going to be screening at the Canterbury Arms, Brixton, as part of Exploding Cinema (the monthly film showcase) on Friday 8th November.

Looks like a great night kicking off at 7:30pm with DJ's, Film QnA's, and lots of other Bonfire Night festivities.

Gutted I can't make it, but I'm gonna try and get some of my London peeps to pop their heads in.

Hope to get some feedback if possible to.

See ya on the flip side - Danny
