Cool image. I had'nt seen that. I am reminded that a few years ago, the U.S. distributors of my "Alien Blood" were contacted by a U.S. TV show, (Dead Lawyers I think, I can't recall, I don't watch T.V.), who wanted to display a poster of my film in the show. On the wall of a serial killer! I'd give a lot to have that one of Ken's "Dracula". You have fun and take care too, Iain.

Dracula by Ken would have been great. 

In the film Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat from 1989 there is a poster for the (unmade) film on the wall.



Take care and have fun

...recently had the chance to read a published version of Ken Russell's screenplay for his never made vesion of "Dracula". What a movie it would have made. Of course I presented Ken with a recording of my music composition "Ken Russell's Dracula", which was a poor substitute for making the film. Ken loved music so it seemed an appropriate gift. Also on the album I gave him was a track called "Ken Russell's The Living End". I had a chance to start watching the new BBC series of "Dracula", and whilst very clever, it makes me miss Ken's version even more. I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year. In the "Time Of The Virus", please do take care of yourselves.

...incidentally, whilst swinging by here, there is also a short piece, dedicated to Ken,
called "Voyager", amongst the short films on the site. I cannot listen to "Venus" from Holst's "The Planets" without remembering how I saw Ken's film on the "South Bank Show" in 1983, which made such an impression on me. Again, my very best to you all. Take care of yourselves.  ;D

As you know I am a long time fan of your Alien Blood, and the Ken Russell influence is clear.  I saw it on TCM, and have the DVD which includes an insightful commentary.

I just watched Virus, some good hypnotic imagery.

I have a series of short music themed videos, made in the Ken Russell spirit. Of course, I still miss Ken terribly. There are more added in the Blog section. The most recent on the home page is "Virus".
Hope this finds you all safe and I send my love and best tou you and yours. The site also acts as a legacy of my film work starting with "Alien", and my photography. Jon Sorensen, May 2020.
