Oooh, she looks beautiful running in full 4K. Film is now complete, and I’ve had lots of feedback from my testers, so just need a bit of time to administer “tweaks” and then we’ll be ready to rock. Yay. Etc.
Okay, Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict, the film about the ZX Spectrum computer, is powering along, good and strong. Latest news includes acquisition of film footage from Steve Wetherill (NODES OF YESOD, ROBIN OF THE WOOD), Mev Dinc (GERRY THE GERM, LAST NINJA 2), Roger Kean (CRASH) and Oliver Frey (CRASH); Oliver Frey is working on the film’s artwork, Clive Townsend (SABOTEUR) is creating in-game loading screens, Mark R. Jones (OCEAN) helped massively with hundreds of stills, yesterday I rebuilt the entire front-end of the film using haunting music from Rob Shedwick (DIGITAL FRONT) and today was spent in the sound studio recording voice-overs. Breathe. So, busy busy busy onwards and upwards!! ETA soon!!
Had a great time meeting and interviewing Jim Bagley, of Cabal and Midnight Resistance fame. The first meeting was at Play Expo in Blackpool, where Jim – bless him – was exhausted from his motorbike and Play Expo adventures (he was Guest of Honour). We still had a great chat about some of the things to be covered in the interview.
We then met up in Jim’s hometown of Liverpool, for a fun interview (the longest we’ve ever done!) which was fascinating in itself with regards his Spectrum developments, his time at Special FX and working with Joffa, and Jim also gave an in-depth explanation concerning the creation of Dragon’s Lair on the ZX81 (for which he received an entry in the Guinness Book of Records!) – so for fans of that, we’ll be releasing it as a separate “mini-film” for those with a serious technical disposition. Thanks Jim. Onwards!! 🙂
