Teapots and Modern Dance, at Venice
Director Damian Chazelle is hitting the double chord joyously as Emma Stone wins best actress, with modern dance we’re going into a dream in the real world, playing out the rhythms of a speech pattern, nursing fantasies in La La Land until lights out… the music casts a thin veil, a dream space as trumpeter Lee Morgan, plays blue notes on his life in Kasper Collins’s documentary, I Called Him Morgan.
I draw Actress Alicia Viksa...
A pleasure to see a film brought to a new place, at the Italian island of Pantelleria with 4 people living out a holiday in a house share, and a wondrous marriage of Italian and british humour.
Pen on paper,
sketching a "beautiful, human and lasting experience"
"The evil and I are old friends.
The people and the part he posed claims a tremendous responsibility for the truth to the person, Jimmy Bulger, and in painting a character you don't like.
Just shooting from the hip.
Bad people do bad things well, it's a quest.
Depp's heroes? John Barrymore and Marlon Brando.
He plays a character, not a poster boy, there's a danger transformation
To look like Jimmy Bulger? The blue eye contacts."
Krigen, a film by Tobias Lindholm, a conversation from a danish perspective, a story full of impossible choices and no ending, concerned with the truth and our addiction to war. The filmmakers got scared, were not amused by the imagination of war as they were not trained in a life experience of war, and so called the danish soldiers to set. The real experts, professionals with three points of view, who have no choice in war, were used for perfection of gun control, like a therapy of confrontat...
This year’s Cannes sketches took off with the European Audiovisual Observatory, where the panelists discussed A Fistful of Euros and The Future of Film Financing in Europe.
I envisioned the creative inability to access finance markets, the digging of consumer trenches with no fiscal incentives where the players in the common landscape seemed to evolve from crowd funders. People participating in works of art is important to the health of society, and intellectual property rights is im...

Spotlight is a short 6'18" of some live animated moments of reel time at Cannes Film Festival.

Spotlight is the first in Nesta's Spotlight collection of film, art, and lighting; from Cannes,to Ve...
Catching my eye on arrival was the “newest, largest and most powerful of the big guns” - not a producer - but a British 15” naval gun previously mounted on the HMS Ramillies and first seeing action in 1920 during The Greco-Turkish War before firing on the Italian landforces and warships… it could fire a 876kg shell a distance of 29kms… that’s like propelling an equivalent of 10 well proportioned men over The EnglishChannel. This gun ha...
Travel with just your mind, explore the paranormal in The Men Who Stare at Goats where Grant Heslov directs the “super powers” of men who completely believed in what they were doing, like Batman and Robin joke the stars George Clooney and Ewan MacGregor.
When asked if he researched paranormal powers for the movie George Clooney replied "At the premiere I am going to actually walk through a wall," so I cartooned this, “Nice” he said and smiled as he shared the...
An interview with Pere Portabella,
President of The International Jury of the Orizzonti section,
director (Spain) of Die Stille Vor Bach and, this year the 20 minute short film Mudanza (Removal) in the Orizzonti Events.
I had passed through a set of three walls at Arsenale Art Biennale - displaying just walking sticks, and then entered through several adjoining rooms of pure colour - red, green, yellow, blue. As I moved through each space with my eyes closed I could still see thei...
"A Festival Wife" is a romantic thriller by Rex Weiner that takes place at the fictional San Lorenzo Film Festival and in the classic tradition of the roman a clef follows a cast of fictional characters moving amidst real-life movers and shakers in the film industry.
Nesta Morgan who illustrates the book commented "When I first read of the project A Festival Wife I was intrigued by the phemerality which lay in the title and how I would illustratively bring to life a fictional f...
