Alex Smith at Unpacked
An exciting late addition to the Unpacked lineup which we wanted to share -- filmmaker Alex Smith will be taking part in the Puppetology session. He has made some great videos for the likes of Peaches, Coldplay and the Darkness as well as one of our favourite promos of recent times, the underwater mayhem of In the Blood by Pivot. Next Friday he'll be in Birmingham with sculptor/filmmaker Astrid Goldsmith to talk about how they created a shark-movie in their back-yard using puppets, props and a stills camera. This is the video itself - apparently banned by myspace for its bloodthirstyness!
Unpacked runs from 10:30am to 4:30pm at The Bond in Digbeth on Friday 26 March, and during the day Businesslink are also doing free one-to-ones offering advice to freelancers and small businesses. You don't have to be signed up for Unpacked to do one of these, just drop us a line if you'd like some more info.
