Moviebar September 2012 - Postscript

Thanks to everyone who came along to the brilliant, and packed, September Moviebar. It really was an amazing night! Here's how it went down . .

Stand and Deliver

Starting off the night was the atmospheric and intriguing short from Gus Alvarez.

All Heart Trailer

Next up was the trailer from regular Moviebar attendee Tim Pieraccini's for his self produced full length film feature 'All Heart'. You can find more out about 'All Heart' through Tim's Blog.

Tim and one of the actors from the film, Megan Bay Dorman, came along to talk about the trailer and his continuing work on the full feature.


Third on the night's bill was the clever and funny 'Incoherant' from Nathan Cooke.

Nathan also came along on the night to talk to us about filming during university, excitable actors and his first staring role.

Nathan also told us a bit about his current collaboration with his Dad, and the original Moviebar creator, Chris Cooke, on a new film called 'The Cave'.


Next came the visually impressive and thought provoking animation from Julian Krispel-Samsel.

Julian then came up to answer questions and talk about his process, influences and the interesting revelation that the music for this short was made alongside as a separate piece with the same ideas by his brother and not specifically for the film.

Marble Hornets

Then we had the first 6 episodes of the chilling Marble Hornets web series. There are currently over 60 episodes of this series available on youtube and even a game, but be warned we have first hand experience of how scary both of them get! If you want to know more about Marble Hornets or the mind behind the series then check out Troy Wagner's Blog - 'Troy Wagner's Blog Machine'.

127 Second and Extreme Golf

About two thirds through the night we showed two fast paced and hilarious shorts from actor / director David August and producer and co star of 'Extreme Sports' Tanner L.Richards.

David and Tanner couldn't be with us on the night but you can find out more about both of these shorts and the men behind them from both David and Tanner's websites or you can follow them now on Twitter - click here for David and here for Tanner. Or if you want a bit of an insiders look into the making of 'Extreme Golf' the behind the scenes video is available here.

And before we move on to the last film of the night here is a little gem from David that we didn't show you. It's well worth a watch!

Batman Teaches Math -

House Trafalgar

Lastly but by no means least was the epic and hugely entertaining 'House Trafalgar'.

If you would like to know more about the film check out the brilliant House Trafalgar blog or join the ever growing Facebook page.

Mark, Simon and James were all with us for the screening and happy to talk to us about their huge ambitions for a small budget film, the worth of a great script and filming in tight surroundings.

Phew! Thank you to everyone who came along to watch and support all of the films that we showed this September as well as Moviebar itself! We will look forward to seeing you all for the next Moviebar night on Monday 1st October!
