Filminutiae. Creative elements pertaining to film. They could be a prop, a title sequence, an editing technique, a storyboard, some sound design, a piece of concept art, marketing material, a bit of tie-in merchandise, fan art inspired by or, indeed, everything in between.
Filminutiae.com is an occasional interview-led blog. It is intended to be a niche interest podcast in literary form. There are many such sites but this one will differ in that it delivers the kind of last orders film theorising in which I like to often indulge but with the crucial addition of exclusive insight from those responsible for actually creating the work.
There is no real rationale as to what will be featured other than it will relate in some way to film as both entertainment and art form. Observant readers will notice that there will most probably be a slight bent towards the science-fiction genre.
As this is a personal side project ( I also do graphic design, on occasion for the film business ) I apologise in advance for the relaxed and sporadic nature in which content on the site will be published. but I hope that when new things appear they will provide a satisfied feeling in those of you who, like me, love nothing more than discussing the minute details of cinema and its satellite cultures at a worryingly obsessive length.
Thanks for reading.
Curation, curiosity, interviews & enthusiasm
A work of art, irrespective of métiers, has an aesthetic quality which resonates to those open to its voice. The fact that a work is utilitarian does not exclude it from being ‘art’. In fact one of the qualities that contributes to this timeless aesthetic experience is the perception of it being appropriate to the task it was designed to perform.
