Let it go, Draper...

It's official, the Lancrab Film Festival is out of reach of this project.

It's a relief in a way, as I'm now committed to producing a better film than the usual race against time knock-up.

It'll be a wrench to be at the festival without anything to show, as last year's showing of The World of Film with my brother was a highlight of my decade so far, but I'm looking forward to sitting back and enjoying a number of talented people show off their wares, including Tim & Kim's long awaited Hope

"The Wallpaper" is going to be a different film to others I've worked on in that it isn't a comedy - for some reason comedy seems to come easiest. I've just felt it's time for something a bit different.

I want to see if I can creep people out instead.

I'm reckoning on mid to late January, may take this project to 24 frames per second which is a fair bit of shooting time.

By the way, Scottie wants to play in that football match next week.

You fool, Disney only use 12 frames per second. What are you hoping to achieve with all of the extra work, the smootheness of melted chocolate, or a river of warm honey on screen?

The general rule of thumb is 12 for quick action and 24 for slow....

Do 24!

Why not? Only if you are lazy. But then I am currently going through the long winded process of changing my 24fps film into 25fps for screening at landcrab.

Everything just takes so long.

If you plan only a video release then you may as well just do 25fps from the off.
