Film Ficciones Spooky Shorts
With just over a week to go we’re getting very excited about our first Travelling Bug House screening! Pumpkins are being harvested, and research is underway for hollowing and cutting out spooky pumpkin faces for the competition! Not to mention all the other things we’ve been up to: measuring screen sizes and projection throws, attempting many chair and table configurations, and photocopying flyers for door to door leafleting… it’s all go!
As well as showing classic feature length films, the Travelling Bug House will also showcase the work of talented local film makers, as well as archive footage of the local area. For the first of these showcases, and to get us in the mood for E.T (just in case you’re not already), we will be screening two eerie short films before the main feature: ‘The Arranged Time’, and ‘Secret of the Slagheap’, made by Film Ficciones, aka Scott Johnston, a local film maker and visual artist. Scott started making work under the name of Film Ficciones in 1998. He mainly made short films, but also music promos and live visuals, including a long-standing collaboration with the band Pram.
He enthuses, “I’ve sort of branched out into a/v installations and multi-media shows as well, and collaborate regularly with 7 Inch Cinema and Sugarfoot Stomp. I’m particularly inspired by dreams, and shared experiences in the dark.” The perfect choice for hallowe’en!
