wood with a subtle twist of pestilence

- 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.

Landcrab came and went this weekend and it was a whole host of fun.

Sean Fradley's "A Right Royal Roast" won the Palm Door and the Sadler/Ward hybrid "Chronic Bolton" won the People's Choice award.

All in all a top night. These festivals are starting to feel like a comfy pair of celluloid slippers and for that credit to the organisers.

It would be interesting to see how other festivals compare, I'd like to go look in 2006.

What I did on the film over the weekend: Nil, too much fun to be had elsewhere.

I think you'll find that other festivals have much 'better' films - but aren't as much fun. Or as useful for film makers, they don't have a comfortable and informal way to get feedback.

Lets not forget Kates credit in the winning film, can't give the fradley boy too much more credit, he'll get idea's and if he gets ideas he might do something with them, like make a film. And if that happens nobody else would get their film made next year, ther'll just be a whole load of half thought out stuff with nobody to shoot them.

Of course, apologies to Kate.

Her poem was among many facets that made the film so enjoyable.

That's not to say she just did the poem of course.

I'll stop now.
