I have been filming at Future for the Breakfast Club movie I am making for work. I have learned so much from doing this. Like we have a dreadful camera at work that shoots great footage but loses it on the scratched mini dvd format it works on. So much stuff out there is incompatible, unreliable, or misleading, and that's just the humans. In amongst the confusion ther are fantastic people steering you clear of wasteful practice. All the digi computa stuff appeals to people who are scared to go outdoors. We thought they'd be good, and true, did we?
As mentioned in my last entry, I have been to Jo's house-she's a goth, so it was no surprise to see how many bones, and what I call tattoo art there was. She has a recording studio in her attic and has kindly remixed the '60s Bernard Cribbins song Hole in the Ground for my filmShe sat at the controls all afternoon counting me in and not letting me do too much damage to the song. Anyone who heard my rendition of The Who's Behind Blue Eyes in front of the Soundbox by the Forum last Saturday will know what I'm on about.
I have found out how to get to the facebook pix into my blog. Brilliant.
Also tomorrow I go to jo's recording studio to lay down the vox for the '80s remake of the Cribbins classic 'Digging This hole'. I'm going to try and do it live over her rough draft on my show today.
hello Aoife, Julie and Ellie sorry I haven't seen your facebook pix yet but it was a memeorable show and as soon as I can find a grown-up to get me to the site I will try and add them to my blog.
Meanwhile, Jo who volunteers in the office here has written the '80s update to the Bernard Cribbins novelty song Digging This Hole, and very fine it is too. We have booked a time for me to put vocals over it in the recording studio in her home, and another of her compositions Dead Mans Eyes is being used in the zombie film being made in Norwich by Ms Channing.
As well as Norwich Titanic I am making a film for Homelessness Awareness Day called breakfast Club. It's meant to be a comedy. Uses genuine homeless people and involves eating breakfast and listening to Future Radio. It is a true story.
Please note the spanish copy of my masterpiece. It looks like they're breaking the no budget rule, and from the ad on the side as if it is promoting an arts festival.
Also a listener called Sean has come forward and told us that on the day the bus went down the hole he drove a yellow vw over the hole 1/2 hour before the bus went down it. He's just off on hols but we will speak more on his return. I have fixed the meeting with the poet for next Monday lunchtime andf will update this blog of the homeless film I'm doing for work.
