Filmmaker of the Century (Oct 2006)

This is the second of these that we printed long ago in a hard copy publication called the FTI News. The material accompanied the events calendar of the Film and Television Institute’s Newsletter in Western Australia. Hence the references to curent-ish films, YouTube and other up-to-the-minute, zeitgeist-y material. There is probably an underlying theme about time passing and the deep existential sadness that we carry with us as remember that all this – our friends, our loved ones, ourselves – will one day be extinguished. We will be taken from them and they will be taken from us. Or maybe I’m over thinking what is only a light name-checking strip about pop culture.

  1. you joke about the colon surgery thing, but actually to prove his edginess a guy in my film year made a short that culminated in his brother shitting onto the camera lens..
