A long overdue update; it’s been a busy couple of months so lots to report. For starters I visited the set of Superman Returns for Starburst magazine and interviewed Bob Clark; the director of Porky’s, Deathdream and the classic Black Christmas for Filmink. My article Quentin Tarantino and the Re-invention of the Martial Arts film will now be appearing in the November of Metro Magazine.
I have just been commissioned to write a regular news column DVD Down Under in DVD World magazine which now has an Australian version hitting the shelves. I will also be chatting to the makers of Hidden, an action packed shocker from New Zealand, for Shivers magazine.
Over the last few months myself and Hilton Howson have been helping to organise a film festival with the guys at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo. The Supanova Fan Film Festival will take place over October 15th and 16th and features a fine selection of trailers, previews and features. At the moment we can confirm we will be showing a selection of previews from UIP including Aeon Flux, Doom and a 20 minute preview of Peter Jackson’s long awaited King Kong. Two months before the film is released the Kong footage is a major coupe and we can’t wait to show it. We also have the Australian premiere of Dungeons and Dragons entitled The Elemental Might. More news soon but keep checking this site or www.supanova.com.au for news.
