London Calling - An Interactive Film

London Calling - An Interactive Film

Paramount Theatre, 14-17 July 2003


Ever wanted to direct a short film? Now’s your chance.

Every day during the Fringe Film Festival, a team of NZ filmmakers in London, will produce scenes of a short film, directed by NZ audience votes.

The story begins with a Kiwi arriving in London on his big O.E. Fresh off the plane our young hero steps out, the world at his antipodean feet.

Who? Why? What? How? When? ……… YOU DECIDE

After watching the first episode on the Paramount screen, the audience will direct the next scenes of the film from kiosks. Locations, characters and dialogue are all under voter control. The film and voting will also be available online at http://www.fringefilmfest.co.nz for audiences across the world.

Once tallied, the votes will be sent to the production team in London, who will shoot, edit and digitally deliver the next episode in time for screening at the festival the following day.

The story will unfold according to voter choice, building to a hilarious climax in the final episode.

London Calling is world first, uniquely combining art and technology to create some truly hilarious entertainment. Produced by the award-winning creators of cult classic 5 Minute Call (winners of the Supreme Creativity Award 2002).

Produced with support from Wellington City Council Creative Communities Grant.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
