Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: Amelia and the Angel online
« Last post by Iain Fisher on March 30, 2021, 07:31:39 PM »
The BFI have agreed a content film with Discover.film and Amelia and the Angel will be one of the films to be shown.

Discover.film show short films, and is free.  I tried it, Ken's Angel is not on yet but some other interesting stuff but the addition of Ken, as well as other short films by Ridley Scott and Hitchcock will provide some needed depth.

The site is here https://discover.film/

Thanks for these and as you say Alien was timeless.

Good luck in your intriguing remote location.

I worked on the original Alien (1979).
It has reared its' head again since I have just been interviewed for an American podcast covering my memories of contributing to the miniatures and visual effects. They won an Oscar.
I have posted three pieces of my ambient music, free to download and keep. These are from an album called "Alien 5". I saw no reason not to share them here. Ken was a fan of the movie.
Also, for those of you who are a fan of the original timeless Alien, there is also a link to a readable PDF containing photos and text, similarly dealing with my memories and impressions.
The music is here. Very mindfulness.

I will be away in a remote location at least till the Autumn.
I want to wish you all the very best and applaud your interest still in Ken Russell.

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Inspiration for Ken's The Devils?
« Last post by Iain Fisher on March 24, 2021, 03:14:26 AM »
When Ken worked on the BBC Monitor programme an episode on 26 Feb 1961, which Ken did not direct, features two short films.  One on John Whiting and his play The Devils (together with Huxley's book the sources of Ken's film from 1971), the other film on two composers one of whom was Peter Maxwell Davies who later composed the music for The Devils (programme details from The Radio Times).  The inspiration for Ken's film?  It seem too much of a coincidence to be otherwise.

There are now three new music videos up on my site, hopefully continuing the best tradition of Ken in matching my images to my music. These are of a "mindfulness" nature. Do take care of yourselves.

As a PS to you, Iain, I read your material on Dick Bush BSC who was a great cinematographer. His work always glowed and inspired me. He also photographed "The Philadelphia Experiment" and "Phase IV", and was the original DP on Jim Cameron's "Aliens". One of the solid old school.
