Frightfest 2014 Coverage

Post by DJBenz » Fri Aug 08, 2014 11:56 am

I'm sure we've had a thread like this in previous years. Anyway, post 'em if you got 'em. If you're blogging, running or writing for a site or just want to share a link to a cool article about Frightfest you found online.

Hello! I'll be doing lots of film reviews and coverage for the horror/sci-fi website Daily Dead, which should start going up from day one of the festival ( http://www.dailydead.com) There's a lot of films I can't wait to see/write about this year =)

Also, in terms of random coverage, this is from last year, but I really like this piece on FrightFest by Anne Billson, thought it was a really lovely article that sums up everything I love about the festival (I'm currently interning/temping at The Telegraph, so I'm a bit biased! But it's a great piece)

Britflicks Frightfest preview podcasts

Post by leytonrocks » Tue Aug 12, 2014 2:09 pm

Hey guys ... I've been busy speaking to as many frightfest film makers as I can for my series of preview podcasts

Already released - Individual shows covering: Blood Moon, The Mirror, Extinction, The Forgotten, The Harvest, The Canal and The Samurai ... more to come about: Faults, Xmoor and Sleeping Room https://soundcloud.com/stuart-wright-3

Or find britflicks.com on iTunes and subscribe to receive them automatically

This is only the second year I've done the preview podcasts and it's a real labour of love. So would love to know what Frightfesters think.

A smorgasbord of interviews with some of the directors of the Frightfest discovery films;

Simeon Halligan talks about the origins of "White Settlers" and how the newspaper "The Guardian" got involved;

Liked your coverage leytonrocks - great podcasts too! What recording equipment did you use out of interest - sounded like a studio.

One thing - and not a criticism - you've got an extraneous "L" in Paul McEvoy's name in your Day 1 coverage.

There's always one typo and it's always a person's name DOH! ... I'll get that fixed

Thank you for positive feedback on the podcast... I have a Macbook Pro and the most up to date Garageband. I record Skype called directly into Garageband using Soundflower and Line In apps to trick the computer into creating two channels within the computer - lord know how this works but it does.

I then use the Condensed Microphone filter in Garageband to take the edge off the voices

I'm glad it sounds so good... my office is in a quiet part of east London so that helps too

Onwards and upwards
