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 [...]
X-Files: I Want To Believe producers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz did a signing at Forbidden Planet in London on the 31st of July. Fans from all over Europe came to meet them. Here’s a little taster of what it was like…
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.
The X-Files fans have had a massive influence on internet fandom- even inventing the whole concept of shipping. It’s well known that Chris Carter used to trawl the web after episodes aired to find out what the fans were talking about and X-Files writers used names of fans as characters. The relationship between the X-Files, [...]
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 [...]
We arrived back from New York late last night. This morning I got up early-ish and started my regular tour through all my places online. On YouTube, I’d noticed that someone had put up a video response to the ‘Sunshine’ trailer in my account. At first it looked like a fan video – the song [...]
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 lovely VinVin has made a video talking about his personal role in getting the whole Indiana Jones on Seesmic thing to happen. He did so much that was unseen internally within Seesmic that I just want to thank him here. Thank you, lovely VinVin! For the record: my son said that ‘Indiana Jones and [...]
I mentioned the other day that I was going to Cannes. At that time, I was fully expecting that I was going to be blogging, Tweeting, Seesmicing and Qiking my whole journey there. It just didn’t happen. Too busy. There was also a big chance that the thing we were going there to do would [...]

I am Dana Scully.
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).
