Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in Video on Thursday 22 August 2013

Girl and Chocolate skateboards put together what is now one of my favourite pieces of film. It’s called Pretty Sweet and it’s made so well that it will make even the most uncoordinated and lazy person want to pick up a board and start shredding. The way that it’s cut, the effects, the soundtrack, the […]

In 1946, Walt Disney, commissioned by the International Cello-Cotton Company (which preceded Kimberly-Clark), produced a 9-minute something film.

Images, action, strands of story and scene changes are ceaselessly thrown at us in an effort to keep our attention, and distract from the lack of meaningful plot and characters worth caring about. Passable movies keep you awake […]
