Star Wars Uncut: Scene 248

Here's my second submission to Star Wars: Uncut project, inspired by The Beatles film, Yellow Submarine, directed by George Dunning. It was great fun to re-design the characters in the style of the film, especially Chewbacca in the part of Jeremy Hillary Boob, Ph.D. There's a bit more movement in the figures as opposed to my last submission, but I've yet to graduate to any fully-fledged acrobatics. All of the interiors and backgrounds are taken from the film and 're-imaging' in Photoshop and the whole thing was put together in Flash. Sound effects where obtained from the rather marvellous and the voices where provided by myself (with apologies to any Liverpudlians out there wondering why the cast have Birmingham accents!). Not sure just yet if I'll take on another scene, but I have a few ideas on how I'd like to render it, so watch this space.

Kevin Tong

Fantastic piece of composition from L.A. based artist Kevin Tong. I love thay there is a real sense of detachment and isolation between the two characters despite with the vibrant colour scheme.

Gainsbourg (Vie Héroïque)

There's some tantalizing unseen footage from the forthcoming Serge Gainsbourg biopic, Gainsbourg (Vie Héroïque), in this video for Dionysos' scorching cover of
Serge's Nazi Rock.

Gainsbourg (Vie Héroïque) is directed by Joann Sfar and scheduled for release in January. I never tire of listening to Gainsbourg's work, so I'm very excited about this movie. Here's the trailer to wet you appetite.

The White Dragon, by Tony Doyle & Nick Derrington, 12" x 24" screenprint available here.
The last time I saw Blade Runner was at The Electric in Birmingham last year. The rain had been torrential all day and inside the cinema you could hear it's rhythmic drumming on the roof, which created the perfect soundtrack.
