improv rulez

Saw the best film I've seen in ages yesterday - Le Donk and Scor-Zay-Zee. Directed by Shane Meadows and starring Paddy Considine, it's a short (71mins) fake documentary about a roadie with a sideline in managing rap acts, well one rap act - real life Midlands rapper Scor-Zay-Zee.

It was made in 5 days (part of Meadow's '5-day-features' venture) for a tiny amount of money and was mostly (if not all) improvised. It's so very funny, and Paddy Considine is amazing. I wanted to say all this better but I'm in a rush so I just urge you to watch the clip I've linked to up there and here and if you like the look of it go see it if it's playing near you.


Also - very happy to say that Metazen accepted a short I sent them this week, not sure when it's going up yet but I'll link to it when it is.



*post script*
Thanks to Nik Perring: I went to from his blog to his wonderful story on Metazen and decided to sub from there.




Hope you're all having a super day.

Jess- thank you. They took about 3 or 4 days, nice and (usefully) prompt!

Thanks, Katie, yeah I didn't know what to expect but the email was very nice. I need to thank Nik Perring actually on my blog because I read his story on Metazen (via his blog) and decided to sub from there.

Ah, the Interweaving Interweb in which we live.

Oh, and while I'm on, I tagged you a wee while ago...

Teresa Stenson said...

Cheers, Nik.

'Tagged' - am I 'it'?

Or do you mean like you've linked to my blog from yours? I see you have. Thank you. I need to do that. I've been meaning to do that. I will do that. Soon.
