A few months back a nice chap named Steven Russell, an agent by day and film enthusiast and S4 Film Club founder by night, contacted me via Twitter to ask if I’d be interesting in having a screening of one of my filmumentaries at the Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel, London. The club night’s format consists of a short film showing, a Q&A with the director and then a audience vote, picking from three films that have inspired the creator.
Steven wanted to do something similar with my filmumentaries. First a Q&A with yours truly and then an audience vote to pick between Star Wars Begins, Raiding The Lost Ark and Inside Jaws. My pal and genius artist Pete Starling of Electrographica was even kind enough to come up with a poster for the event (see below). Apparently this image came to him as he was falling to sleep one night!
The evening was attended by some forty five friends and strangers. The Q&A went well (see photo below) and the Genesis Cinema want me back in the future to do another night.
Thanks to everyone that came along. I hope to see you there again soon.
NB: I received no payment for the evening in keeping with my free, non profit ethos.
This sounds like an amazing night. If something like this ever happens in Los Angeles, I will be there! BTW, just finished watching Inside Jaws for third time. Tremendous work. Your film has made me fall in love with Jaws all over again. I can say the same about all your Filmumentaries. Thank you so much for all your work.
