Killing Seals - A Flirtation with New Cinema Technorati icon

August 19, 2006 | Filed under: Internet TV

This was Xav and my first flirtation with Flickbook Pictures. Xav directed it (and I messed around with a camera) over one day in Amsterdam. He has this idea for a kung fu hero who has no arms. I keep thinking it would make a very cool comic novel or something because the character has something of an X-Men feel to him.

Mat Fraser, who plays Jimmy, is a very exciting performer to work with and he completely shattered all my perceptions of people with no arms. Indeed, his hands are powerful and the character he played was charismatic and edgy. 

It's amazing what you can do in a day. Watch this space for a trailer of the first Flickbook full-length feature - Mine. I am buzzed!

Here is Xav's sketches for a novel version of the F**king with Jimmy story and his notes on its making.
