- in which our plaintiff strives to make some magic image box trickery, in order to insinuate himself into Dame Marjory's will. Constable Blackthorpe, however, has suspicions.

Son of Ken

Film Network is the BBC's excellent short film showcase website. I often call in there to have a quick look at some of the offerings on display, and there are some real gems to be found.

My undoubted favourite so far though has to be Geoff, World Destroyer. It's only 90 seconds long but is one of the most complete narratives I've seen for a long time. Give it a look - anyone who doesn't find this funny is probably dead.

The studio involved is Son of Ken - well worth a look for their politely surreal "Other Animals" series, which involves a texting cow, a pessimistic horse and a breakdancing, rocket building genius guinea pig.

Awesome

What I did on my film today: Embarked on the "Male Point of View" rewrite as mentioned yesterday - 2 pages done!

I've just got back from the Brief Encounters festival - such great short films on show. But you do wonder what will happen to these people. Someone who is good at shorts may not be great at features / tv etc. Maybe a new on-line industry will develop?

A good point Tim.

Most of Son of Ken's work appears to be online for the BBC, flash educational animations etc.
