Hey Guys and Gals,
 
It is that special time of the month where we bring you some good news.
 
Firstly thanks to all those who managed to come down to the last See No Evil
and a special thanks to David Wilson for a brilliant talk and presentation. That
guy is great!
 
As everyone is waiting for it.… and I hope you are really waiting for it, because the next
See No Evil will be great, taking place on….
 
**Next See No Evil 6th August from 7pm Bodhi**

 
And we need to say… after David Wilson’s talk, we got inspired about
Directors showing their stuff and thought to try it again. Yes, another special night for you guys and
gals.

This time we will bring none other than Simon Robson 

(http://www.knife-party.net) from Nexus (http://www.nexusproductions.com/).

He will be coming down to talk about his work and his next exciting project
“Coalition of The Willing”.

 
About Simon Robson:
 
Simon is best known for his direction of issue film, or issue animation if you
will. Too many evenings spent listening to the declarations of his pal, Barry
McNamara, lead to the conception of multi-award winning short film, ‘What Barry
Says’
. The film is a response to the US invasion of Iraq and elucidates
McNamara’s outspoken views on what he calls ‘War Corporatism’. Quickly
championed by the motion community, conspiracy nuts and the worldwide public
alike, it blazed a trail across the world wide web and the film festival circuit
in 2004 and 2005. Simon has, as yet avoided assassination despite receiving
direct threats from the marine corps.
 
2006, a new year a new issue film, this time in the shape of a feature
documentary entitled ‘Taking Liberties’ conceived and directed by Chris Atkins.
Chris invited Simon to direct animation for his film, which addresses the
decline of Civil Liberties in the UK since 1997. Taking Liberties showed in
theatres across the UK in the Summer of 2007 and went on to be nominated for a
BAFTA in 2008.

 
When not trying to put the world to rights, Simon finds time to direct
commercial projects with Nexus Productions. Simon’s commercial work includes
graphic idents for Nike and Seeds of Change as well as a 60 second promotional
spot for Adidas featuring the world’s best footballers. Most recently he has
directed commercials for Save The Children, The Observer and The Guardian.
 
Simon is currently developing his new project ‘Coalition of The Willing’ with
philosopher and writer Tim Rayner
. They are now at the helm of the evolving
project, bringing together artists from around the world to create a film and an
online event that proposes a pro-active response to the climate crises. If you
are a brilliant moving image maker and want to get involved, drop Simon a mail
