It was a new venue for August’s Moviebar and we settled in nicely, we found the play button on the DVD player OK which got us off to a good start. We had a fantastic turnout so thanks to everyone for coming along and we think the Caroline of Brunswick will be the perfect home for Moviebar for many months to come.
Kicking things off was the thriller Get Well Soon from directors Ian Baigent and Jack Burnford and writer Michael Woodman.
Get Well Soon (Trailer)
The short is a tense, unflinching portrait of a relationship in a downward spiral with beautiful cinematography and gruesome effects. For more screenings check out Michael Woodman’s blog Punchdrunk in Matalan.
Next was the comedy Straight Out from writer/director Andy Nicholls who subverts the coming-of-age genre by setting it in a world where gay and straight stereotypes have been flipped around...

Then we screened writer/director Mark Moynihan’s Little Things, a quirky drama about the tiny interactions that make up life...
Sadly Mark couldn’t make it all the way from Wales but he did send a nice little video message. You can find out more about the film over at Little Things Movie.
Finally, after being delayed from last month, we got to show the three trailers made by Anthony Carpendale and Helen Kennaugh for the Brighton Film Coalition’s 48 hours challenge...
Lick My Crutch
The Man Who Shouts at Seagulls
Anthony and Helen came along to tell us about turning pub banter into three proper trailers shot over a weekend in Brighton. In-case you were wondering, Lick My Crutch would be first they’d turn into a feature.
You can see more of Anthony’s work over on his Vimeo channel.
Unfortunately we couldn’t show Chris Regan’s hotly anticipated Jenny Ringo and the Monkey’s Paw but we will, watch this space!
We hope to see everyone again for more movie madness on Monday 5th September. For any feedback or submissions, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
