Fractured Visions – Comic book documentary

12 01 2010

I made this short documentary last summer. Fractured Visions is an ‘open source’ documentary of the comic book scene in the UK and Ireland. It highlights some of the themes and approaches to the medium that have emerged from social and political issues. This 2 part video features sequential artist David Lloyd (co-creator of V for Vendetta), artist Declan Shalvey, writer/artist Malachy Coney, writer/artist Bridgeen Gillespie and assorted clips from the 2d comic book festival in Derry, Northern Ireland. I’d like to dedicate it to the people who helped me along the way and the comic book writers and artists who kindly gave their boundless enthusiasm and precious time to the project.

Great stuff. Bridgeen Gillespie and Malachy Coney seem like interesting characters – kudos to them for doing their own thing.
