MovieBar December 2012 PostScript...

The last MovieBar of 2012. It was another successful night with a varied selection of films on offer.

For those who couldn't make it, and those who simply want to relive the magic, here's how it went down.

Binoculars
The night began with Gabriel Foster Priors dark and atmospheric tale of a man who finds a way to spy on himself.

Gabriel came along to talk about the film and his other projects including his Teaser for his next film below

You can find more about Gabriel on his website here.


Blood for the Hunter - Trailer
We followed Binoculars with the trailer for John Rackham's forthcoming action/horror feature. Chris informed us that John had started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the trailer but didn't manage to reach his target...but he went ahead and managed to make the trailer anyway- good on him!

More information can be found on the Facebook page here.


Green Means Stop
After the first break we came back with Will Middleton's quirky drama centred around a man struggling to cope with an over-active imagination. Unfortunately Will's film is not yet online so look out for it at festivals.



The Last Santa 
We followed up with our two Christmas-themed comedy shorts from MovieBar regular and one-woman film studio Molly Brown.



Topsy Turvy Christmas




Soupremacy
Completing our 2nd act was Joshua Westbury's return to MovieBar with his incredibly creative sci-fi animation set to a suitably epic score from composer David Novan. David also joined him on the night discussing how he had composed the music with Joshua taking inspiration to create the visuals. It has similar atmosphere to Jeff Wayne's War of the World's and 80's animated fantasy film Heavy Metal.



You can find out more about Joshua here.
And you can find out and hear more of David Novan's work here.



Becky
Postponed from October's Moviebar, our final act of 2012 began with haunting and moody short from Daya Dodds, about the last actions of a man who has lost everything important in his life. Unfortunately the film is not yet online.

Captive
Finally the night ended with Gus Alvarez short, postponed from Halloween on 5th November. This disturbing short thriller shows the lengths the suits may go looking for the right man.



You can find out more about writer David Nash on his website here.


So that's MovieBar for another year.

Due to the fact that we need to get our heads straight after all the fun times to be had during the next few weeks we won't be back until 4th Feb 2013.


See you there, but for now, the MovieBar team wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
