Phew! Once again I’ve been running on adrenaline for the past few weeks. No good. No good at all. After I got over about 6 weeks of illness earlier this autumn, I’m once again on the verge of illness – some annoying flu-thing. Grrrrr. I’ve been up to some interesting things, including working on a [...]

Yes! My first 28 Weeks Later billboard is up!! Thanks to Iain at CrackUnit for the photo and the post, and thanks to John Dodds for telling me about it. OK, kids, I’ve introduced QR Codes publicly into the UK (and you’ll, no doubt, be hearing more about it in the coming weeks), it’s now [...]
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 [...]
Wow. If this is true this might be a really big deal: 1998 is no longer the hottest year of last century. Fram Daily Tech: While inspecting historical temperature graphs, Steve McIntyre, (climateaudit.org) noticed a strange discontinuity, or “jump” in many locations, all occurring around the time of January, 2000. These graphs were created by [...]
Mark Neonbubble just reminded me of a year ago tomorrow when I asked for my Wikipedia page to be first created, then defiled as a birthday pressie. At one point it read: Gia (born July 11) is neither Italian, Serbian or English – she’s a Minnesotan (short in stature, but loud, very loud) who came [...]
I just got in from the Rise of the Silver Surfer premiere. I unexpectedly got some tickets for it today when I was at a meeting at Fox. I took my son who *loves* the first film and was very keen to try and meet each of the actors. I said that might be difficult, [...]
I’ve just cut a new reel… What do you think? Too long? Too short? Too… something? I had to add Yoko at the end. :)
OK. So… We’ve renamed our little cat after one of the characters in Sunshine (it’s spoilerish, so hover for name), cos he’s always in your face. I’m wearing an Icarus II uniform jacket. And judging by my eye, I’m turning into a freakin’ infected (nasty and spoilerish). Total DNA Dork.
…is very fucking nigh. Just got in from the 28 Weeks Later premiere. Jesus, it’s intense. It lulls you into a false sense of security which you know can’t last long… and then it just pulls you along, pulls you pulls you pulls you and you don’t really want to go there, but it takes [...]
Someone’s got a new toy… heh.
OK. So, I’ll explain the technique I used to take infrared photos with my mobile phone camera. First, you need to check and see if your camera is sensitive to Infrared light. An easy way to check this is to point a remote control at your camera and press one of the buttons. If you [...]
These past few days I’ve started taking some photos which have particularly excited me… with my mobile phone camera. Yep. I’ve found out how to take… wait for it…. infrared photos with my Sony Ericsson mobile phone. It’s seriously cool. They do need a bit of Photoshop tarting (adjusting levels and contrast etc) as a [...]
