August 25, 2006
It's a great showcase for experimental local talent. It's great to see your home city being represented in smart little movies. Two examples:
First up '2 Tone Poem – Coventry Calling'. Nice visual treatment. It's rough and ready and out there and here it gets an audience. Many Coventry locations. A guy with the balls to walk the streets reading his work, which is a hymn to the mighty Specials
Dreaming of brewing up pop music as the only bomb worth dropping
Secondly, 'Parkour 06'. I'm fascinated by parkour – free running – having quite recently met an amazingly diverse group of kids performing outstandingly acrobatic moves in Central Birmingham. They are like a bunch of troubadours, an old fashioned, mobile circus act but brought together through internet forums to teach each other their skills on the street.
'Parkour 06' is the first film by Annie D about Parkour runners in Coventry. Simple, stylish, watchable. Nice sound edits. Annie, well done. Keep up the good work.
