What’s to come…

August 13, 2008

Hi everybody!

Just a small note to let you regular readers know that I’m finally back from my travels. The last six weeks I’ve been in Nepal and Guatemala for work (shooting a new TV series) and Sweden and Denmark for vacation. In a word: WOW!

I know I’ve neglected this blog for far too long, but I’ll make it up to you. A LOT of things are in the pipeline. The eagerly awaited Directorama book (with a foreword by Dennis Cozzalio!) is almost finished (I just need to design the cover) and a whole new season of Directorama is on its way. What’s more: Directorama will get its very own dedicated website soon, and this blog will be part of the new domain! Apart from that, Keith and me are prepping the 24LiesASecond essays for the upcoming merger with The House.

Keep checking this space. More will follow soon!

NEGATIVE SPACE #28: Once Upon A Close-Up

October 14, 2007


This is my contribution to the Close-Up Blog-a-Thon at The House Next Door. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the first episode of Directorama!

NEGATIVE SPACE #27: Stunt work

August 25, 2007


This may or may not be the last Negative Space cartoon, at least for a while. I’m going to try and focus on a new film-related project: the webcomic DIRECTORAMA. (See my previous post.)

NEGATIVE SPACE #25: Bye bye, Bergman :-(

July 31, 2007


Greedy bastard, that Grim Reaper. As if the Swedish master wasn’t enough, he had to take Antonioni on the same day. If there’d be some pie left, I’d throw it in his pale face…

NEGATIVE SPACE #24: Happy Birthday, Ingmar

July 20, 2007


A big Thank You to David Hudson and Edward Copeland for the inspiration!


Just heard the news today that Ingmar Bergman has passed away.
I´m speechless…

When I was in the process of coloring this cartoon (yeah, it didn´t take too long this time around), I wrote an email to a friend that jokingly referred to Bergman´s impressive age: “I just hope I can finish this bloody cartoon on time,” were my exact words. Honestly though, who could see this coming? Bergman was one of cinema´s greats and he’d been around for so long that I was starting to believe he would never leave us. (In fact, I´d already planned a second cartoon for next year. It would´ve had exactly the same setting, only the Grim Reaper would groan: “Good grief, not pie again…”)

I promise I´ll come up with an appropriate follow-up post soon. Just have a little patience, because I´m currently on vacation in Denmark and I’m not sure when (or if) I’ll be able to upload something from my laptop.

Take care,

I’ve put up a follow-up post here.

Any which way you look at it… the girl ain’t worth the look.

NEGATIVE SPACE #21: Home theatre?

June 17, 2007


You think I’m making this up? Check out Jim Emerson’s post on the Landmark multiplex in Los Angeles. If this doesn’t signal the slow death of the collective theatrical experience, I don’t know what will.

This is your last warning: Do not underestimate Michael Bay, or he’ll blow you up from 25 different camera angles.
