I’m helping out with the British Film Institute’s 75th birthday celebrations. They’ve asked 75 different ‘well-known people’ to nominate one film each, then ‘the public’ are able to vote on them. The top 5 will be screened at the BFI from January. Here are a few of the choices: There have been 63 different films [...]
I’m going to be attending all the X-Files events over the next few days in London. In order to let everyone *not* attending get a flavour of what is going on, I’m going to *try* and film and broadcast live from my mobile. I will be at the Q&A with Frank Spotnitz and Chris Carter [...]
Here are some interviews I did at the X-Files Sneak Peek at the LA Film Festival.
First, for TONS of videos, photos, conversation on the X-Files, join Big Light. It’s for fans, old and new of the X-Files. Now, this video gives an idea of what kind of fun was had by all at the X-Files Sneak Peak at the LAFF. It was made by the lovely Mya. Music: Walking in [...]
Anyone who does online marketing work for a media behemoth knows that ‘the online copyright issue’ is an endless source of frustration. I’m working with Fox on X-Files: I Want To Believe doing online marketing and promotion. As a geek film fan, working on films that you love is just the best thing in the [...]
In the next few weeks there is an X-Files DVD coming out. Up until today, I thought it was going to be called X-Files: Revelations (and in the US it still is), but in the UK, at least, it seems to be called X-Files: Essentials. Ah, who cares about what it’s called, it’s what’s on [...]
One thing I’ve been finding very interesting since I started doing stuff for the X-Files is the almost obsessive need for some of the fans to not believe anything, yet neither do those ‘unbelievers’ attempt to seek out the ‘truth’. They think they’re being ‘a Scully’, when, in fact, they are merely being a ‘reverse [...]

The day has come. I can start talking about the X Files: I Want To Believe! I am an X Files fan- I own books, toys, trading cards, I even used to dye my hair red like Scully- so when I found out about the new film I emailed a colleague at 20th Century Fox [...]
Sunshine is on at the Rio Cinema Dalston in London this weekend as part of the Physics On Film festival run by the Institute of Physics (and organised by my friend Sam Rae:). Unfortunately, I’m not going to be in London this weekend otherwise I’d be there. I’d love to see ‘Sunshine’ in the cinema [...]
Water Lilies opens this week in London at the Curzon Soho, Brixton Ritzy, Cineworld Fulham, Odeon Swiss Cottage; the Duke of York’s in Brighton; and the Cameo in Edinburgh. I’ve already posted the trailer and a few clips, now I’ve got the first 6 minutes of the film (press play to watch).
Been doing some Water Lilies related stuff while Brian is attending the TED talks. The film comes out from the 14th of March in the UK. It’s a brilliant film and is getting great reviews from everywhere.
First off, thanks to everyone at Walking With Robots for such a brilliant 3 days. You guys rule! Also, thanks to all of you blog friends for visiting the Walking with Robots blog and saying ‘hi’. We all really appreciated it. A super, special thanks to Jonathan Sanderson for asking me along. Nice to finally [...]

On first thought, I’d say that 2007 was fairly uneventful. My past few months have consisted of me being ill and feeling like I’ve done very little other than try and get healthy again… Then, when I properly think about it, I realise that the whole year has been MENTAL! January Me and Charlie Brooker [...]
Well, today Sunshine was released on DVD. I thought I’d take this chance to just share some of my Sunshine memories (well the ones which come with photographs which I can more or less make public) from the past two years… During filming at 3 Mills Studios, I carried my ‘office’ with me to and [...]
