    Default 'A walk in Bristol' - defiantly unpopulist.

    ----- Link fixed now -----
    Contains wordy vulgarity and acerbic comments about bus drivers and an allusion to a randy estate agent.

    With a nod to 'man with a movie camera' and ' the london nobody knows' and koyaanisqtasi and a big wink to films by patrick kieler.

    I wanted to make a film about 2 blokes going on a walk.

    I went on said walk and filmed stuff I liked the look of with a notion to end where the flowers appear at the end.

    Then I burned my pants writing some thing that I was proud of.

    I may be asking a lot for people to watch this - is 13 mins long and defiantly what I wanted to make rather then what I tht would be popular....

    2.4 mbit stream.

    " Wilkinson was hugely irrited that this film took 8 hours to render"

    Now available in jerko vision on you tube - 2 parts.

    Not sure if it's just me Mark, but your link is giving me nothing mate. And you sneakily stopped me from snooping around the directory dammit.

    Andy said it was weirdly addictive to watch. He never understood 'arty' films and still didn't really. But nevertheless, he didn't skip any of it, since it was compulsive viewing. And he thought it was nice to see something in 'good ol' 4.3' again..... He also commented how the lingering shots forced him to pay alot more attention to what he was seeing, which, he asserted was a refreshing change from the rushed tone of current movies.

    Wilkinson became almost hysterical with joy that Andy commented on the film. He was especially pleased that Mr Lockwood appreciated what he was trying to achieve.

    Wilkinson thought other people may just be so impressed they cant find words to espress thier admiration.

    MarkOneMusic noted that at some point in the film there was a point at which that "Watson" and not "Wilkinson" was credited with a comment. It was somewhere around the point at which the dopplegangers were being filmed. Whether this is in fact deliberate, or indeed a small slip is of course quite probably unknowable.

    Other than that I thought it was an excellent little film. Knowing the area a bit made it all the more interesting. Loved the technique of showing you a place in such a limited fashion, no panoramic vistas, just close ups of slightly seedy areas. I loved the narration too. quirky, surreal, and in some ways poignant.

    Andy noticed that too but completely forgot to mention it in his first comment as he was too busy trying to be a smart alec...
