Screening at Papaya Rocks Film Festival



My 60-second film Trifle will screen at the Papaya Rocks Film Festival in London on Thursday, the 28th of February, 2019 at the independent, family-owned Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel. This will be the film's world premiere.

A trifle is a matter of trivial importance, or a small quantity of anything. The film is a 60-second documentary about adjusting to tiny cultural differences.

Published in Frames Cinema Journal

The new issue of Frames Cinema Journal -- "Making Meaning of the Visual: Space and Identity" -- has just been published. I have a paper in it. It's titled: Popeye Doyle in the Rearview Mirror: Has the POV Shot Lost its Human Identity? You can read it for free.

It's about editing techniques for "cueing" POV shots, and our experience of identification with a character if these cues work. The paper starts with the famous chase scene in The French Connection, looks a little into the convoluted theory behind "identification," and then considers how the use of stabilized cameras and "documentary-style" camera work changed the use of cued POV shots.

So go and read the article.
