Blog: Video Schedule Update

< previous next >
When I sent out the latest newsletter on Wednesday it included a brief bit about VIDOES, which I thought I would EXTRAPOLATE on here. Nobody else is going to, after all, so it might as well be me!

Keen observers of my activities will have noted that there have been quite a lot of VIDOES produced for the album (The Unearthly Beauty Of MJ Hibbett - why not give the gift of a USB stick full of ME this Christmas?), with SEVEN (7) unleashed so far and the promise/threat of more to come. The most recently allowed out into the wild was What I Always Think While Watching Poetry, the SHORTEST of all the videos and, funnily enough, the shortest song too. You can see it BELOW:



It was also the quickest video to MAKE too, unlike the next one Apocalypse Prepared, which is tentatively timetabled to head your way mid-December. That took FLIPPING MONTHS to do, as it is HAND DRAWN by ME using an exercise book and one of those pens with four different colours of ink in it. It was quite MEDITATIVE, drawing a picture every day or so, but it didn't half take a lot of time. Hopefully it will be WORTH it when you see it!

That will leave SIX (6) more to put out, of which THREE (3) are so far in the bank. I'm going to have a bit of a break from the video schedule after the next one, as this much THRILLPOWER can be difficult to cope with for everybody, and then start again mid-January, which gives me a nice slice of time to try and get them all done. After that I am very much considering re-editing THE LOT to tidy everything up (e.g. by seeing if I can DE-SHAKE Someone Else's Turn a bit, after MANY REMARKS) before joining them together into A CONCEPT FILM!

The DRIVING THORT of this is two-fold. Firstly, I just like the idea of turning an album into a FULL-LENGTH VISUAL EXPERIENCE, and secondly I see this as a way to INFLICT it all on a whole new bunch of people. I know from my experience of trying to do SCREENWRITING a few years ago that there are LOADS of film festivals you can enter such things into, and after spending most of the past YEAR working on this thing, I really want to make sure it is SHARED with as many people as possible. Also, I like the thought of SWANKING ROUND going "Yes yes, it us UN FILM what I have made, a concept movie IF YOU WILL where the concept is MOI."

All that is to come but for now, as they always say on TELLY, please LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE the channel. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but if it's good enough for DOCTOR WHO then it's good enough for me!
