This is my 24 Frame 24 Hour film, a style of making a short video of your day filmed on your mobile phone.
While on holiday in North Italy, during a visit to a zoo I caught on my mobile this fossa practicing world class nutmegs and dribbling skills. Fredrich the fossa, as he’s been named, is given a ball for excercise training and enrichment to keep him inquisitively active and healthy.
This carnivorous mammal closely related to the mongoose family, but quite resemblent of a cat, is native to Madagascar. As the largest predator of the island they are capable of hunting all the indigenous mammals, including the well known lemurs. Being able to catch prey in the trees and on the ground, while also hunting through all hours of the day make this a persistant and formidable hunter.
Lasted a grand total of 6 hours! Impressive, no? Well it’s a dismal result yes but man was it hard! Just made a quick video detailing what it is I did, how I kept busy and how I gave up.
Maybe you guys could give it a go and see how long you can last?
That’s for 24 hours with no: Television, Film, Radio, Internet, Gaming, Newspaper/Magazines, Ipod/Ipad. Enjoy!
People dancing to Scream & Shout by Will.i.am outside the town hall in Manchester. This was done in protest against council cuts resulting in the shutting down of the Levenshulme library.
This was filmed on a mobile so apologies for the poor sound & shaky video.
Just watched the four part series of ‘Everything is a remix’ by Kirby Ferguson, would highly recommend, it’s a real eye opener. Check it out here http://www.everythingisaremix.info/watch-the-series/.
It explains the ‘remix’ culture we live in today, copy -> transform -> combine, the three steps to creation. Listen to Led Zeppelin, watch George Lucas’ Star Wars, or the contemporary remix king Tarantino’s Kill Bill and you can see ‘creation from influence’ being taken to the literal extremes, but still, you cannot deny the grandeur of these works. I do thoroughly recommend you watch the video though, if there was any doubt before, after watching – it will make you say remix culture is a big positive!
Heavily influenced by Kirby Ferguson & the content of his videos 😉
Public DJ sets on Radio? A week by week (day by day?) radio programme that calls for DJ’s of all backgrounds, whether that be a semi-professional just starting off or that guy making mixes in his bedroom, to play a half-hour set each. It would be a great way to reach out to the music community, you guys, and listen to what you want and get it for everyone else to hear. These user mixes could be aired from the service sites such as SoundCloud.
Let us know your thoughts? Has it been done before/being done? Who would be good station to do this, the BBC?

This a short list of a few of my favourite films & tunes in no particular order.
Donnie Darko – The hall way scene with the Tears For Fears song ‘head over heels’ is one my all time favourite scene’s. Unfortunately the full scene isn’t on Youtube anymore and this is the best i could find.
Goodfellas – I’m a huge Martin Scorcese fan and this film got me into Gangsta/Mob films (yes, before The Godfather!), particularly his releases; The Departed, Casino etc
Looper – Released last year this film blew me away, with a combination of time travel and futuristic mob worlds this proved to be a winning formula for me.
Incubus – Drive
Velvetine – The Great Divide (Seven Lions Remix)
