Watched the Mitchell's Vs The Machines with child number three today. Great, super inventive family fun. We really enjoyed it.

Met for tea and cake with an old pal today. While the adults chatted our seven year old and his 11 year old drew this together. 😂

Thanks @RealRachelFinch . Tim was great. Managed to meet him in person a few weeks back. He was amazed to hear I'd had Walter Murch on podcast too. He was of course directed by Walter on Return to Oz. Managed to get a signed pic too.

Giving this awesome @jamieswb ep a re-listen this morning. Jeez I love Tim Rose and his insight into rehearsals and how filmmaking has changed... probably for the worse? #Filmmaking #podcast

I was VERY excited to be on @jamieswb ‘s Filmumentaries podcast. I don’t think I’d spoken to anyone for a couple of days so I’m painfully waffley on it but it was a lot of fun chatting with him about how shit Movies That Made Us is!

Calling all you pixel-wranglers out there. How difficult is it for you to track a Steadicam shot as opposed to a traditional dolly, crane or handheld shot? @agraphafx

40 years ago today (14th Jan 1982), Ewoks were first filmed for "Revenge" of the Jedi. Here's George Lucas talking about the creation of the furry little critters.

Forty years ago today, the Ewoks, love em or hate em, were committed to film at @ElstreeStudios for the first time. Here are shots of the actors suiting up. With Stuart Freeborn making some adjustments while his producers look on. #returnofthejedi #ewoks #BehindtheScenes

Your daily reminder that this man lives and works in the *exact same building* as all of these parties and has been sitting on this information for the sake of his own grubby career

In January 1982 while Revenge of the Jedi was being shot at Elstree. These are the options that U.S cinema goers could chose from. (Source - The-Numbers)
