We’ve seen these kitschy images of waif children almost everywhere over the years. Loved by Warhol, they were never elevated into upper realms of art world and remain gauchely mainstream.

As we turned the corner we were surprised to see it was transformed into a winter wonderland with snow, reindeer and ice sculptures to celebrate the release of the film, Norway andloosely based on ‘The Snow […]

Unhappy Birthday hails itself as a no budget movie and has an intriguing synopsis (below) and like Sightseers, it’s a grotesque pastiche of Britain rather than a gentle drama, so be warned but prepared for a Tales of the Unexpected meets Hammer Horror type tale… A surprise birthday party becomes a living nightmare for city-dwelling […]

Here’s a sneak preview of Horrid Henry The Movie which I took on set. It’s by no means the finished article and we can’t wait to see the final version. This scene was being filmed at Hampton Court House and Richard E Grant, who is in character as the school Headmaster, is on the stage. […]


If you’ve got kids, no doubt you have a few well thumbed copies of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid cult books, based on the New York Times cartoon series, lying around the house. The appeal is that they’re not just funny, but full of caustic humour and flawed characters of all ages. It was […]
