in the UK

In case you haven't already heard on Twitter or Facebook, the still to be color-corrected #2wkfilm Blanc de Blanc will be playing in the Video Cafe of the Portobello Film Festival in Swinging London[1]. What's the Video Cafe? Well, I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's pretty much a screening room where they have a bunch of films on-demand, and you can watch whichever one you please. It's kind of cool, but it's a Screening Out of Competition thing, so it's not, you know, fantastic. But, for a film that hasn't been color corrected, we'll take what we can get. Plus, we've been rated by the London Film Board or something as 12A. So, we need to spice in some nudity or something to get that higher.

That's pretty much it for now. If you'll excuse me, I need to figure out which moving box contains the hard drive with the film on it.

the Heath Ledger music video

My girlfriend is a massive fan of Modest Mouse (me, I think they're pretty good), so I've sort of gotten used to forwarding any news of them to her. Well, yesterday this came across my RSS feed a couple of times. Heath Ledger directed a Modest Mouse video before his death. One source (Cinematical?) said the animation was Terry Gilliam's, which looks right, but his name doesn't appear in the credits, so maybe not.

Anyway, enjoy.
