Venue Does Banksy

Interesting article in Venue this week about the new Banksy film, which hasn’t been covered on here yet, and to be honest isn’t going to be covered more than this really. Local man moves to big city, makes film, good on him. It’s the rumours of other films on this sort of stuff that are of more interest to blog towers…

Ronnie Jotun and the blog editorial kru speak to Venue, yesterday.

Venue were good enough to ask our thoughts here on the film too, an exclusive no less. Of especial interest to Banksy hunters will be the fact that they’ve republished the interview he did with them in feb 2000 before the Severnshed show. We’ve got an original copy of it here, and it was always going to get scanned and blogged at some point, but now Venue are running it, it would seem off to post it up now. So, will blog that next week for interest. Someone will doubtless type it up verbatim somewhere online soon enough.

Anyway, Venue, definitely worth a look this week.

    I know this is a bit shameless – hope you don’t mind – but the reference to the Severnshed interview reminded me of a bit of audio we dug up for the exhibition last year.

    It was a little hidden away but hopefully is of interest.

    “Local man moves to big city, makes film, good on him.”

    apparently there was a bit more to it than that, or so i’ve heard on the grapevine anyway. more like ‘local man gets blackmailed by absolute nutter, inadvertantly ends up with footage to make a film, good on him.’

    these rumours you’ve heard, surely not a Bristol graff movie in the making by any chance? that probably wouldn’t be a good idea…

      Nope, more of films back in the day. Someone emails once a month on average wanting help with making a film about Bristol graff. They all think they’re the first too.
