Flip Festival 2008 Video Interviews

As promised here are the video interviews that we shot over the weekend of the festival. We managed to take take some of the panellists to a quiet corner (which is very hard at a busy festival) and ask them a few questions. This is the first time I have put video together for use on the internet, and it was really fun, easy and inspiring. I used mini DV camera, Windows Movie Maker and Vimeo. If you took any video footage at Flip please add your links in a comment. Enjoy.

Thanks Everyone!

The Flip team would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who came to the festival last weekend. As you will agree the festival programme was especially fantastic this year. The highlights for me were the launch at TIC where we heard from Camilla Deakin about the new animation content site 4mations and had a lively discussion from the digital movers and shakers from the region.

Osbert Parker, interviewed by Sam Moore was a real treat, he was extremely charismatic and inspirational. To see his films ‘Film Noir’ and ‘Yours Truly’ on the big screen was very special. For those of you who didn’t manage to make it to that screening, you missed out but here is an extract from ‘Yours Truly’ on YouTube.

Flip 08 ended with a party hosted by Colour (read Matthew’s write up) which was a perfect end to the festival weekend with live music from Epic45 and Limechalks, homemade cakes and visuals.


We have recorded a few short interviews with some of the speakers and filmmakers over the weekend and will be putting them up on the blog soon. If you have recorded any video or taken any photographs at the festival please get in touch, or put a link in the comments.

Many, Many thanks to all the people who make Flip possible and all of the partners and sponsors.
