Ideas Tap Award : Short Film 2015 : Tapes From The Revolutionary

  Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 3.37.50 PM

Me: A problem I’m having, Andy, is that the film won’t work.

Andy: You couldn’t direct me to do what you wanted me to do.

Me: I don’t want to debate, I just want to film a pigeon.

Tapes From The Revolutionary was my graduation film from Edinburgh College Of Art. The project aimed to be a personal portrait on the life of a self-proclaimed communist revolutionary, Andy. With his Hi-8 camcorder, Andy studied his surroundings. We started filming together. We never got along. He thought I was an authoritarian an therefore my film grew into something else…

Tapes From The Revolutionary has recently won Ideas Tap Award : Short Film 2015 for documentary. In association with BAFTA, the award is set out to recognize the high standard of work being produced by UK-based graduates. I’m pretty chuffed. Ideas Tap is a great resource and I have benefited from reading its articles… However due to a cut in funding, from the 2nd of June, Ideas Tap will be closing shop.

A kick in the teeth…

Here is an online petition to save ideas tap, I think it is legit… either that or your junk folder will demand you to purchase counterfeit Viagra tablets. A win win situation for some. In conjunction with its recent win, Tapes From The Revolutionary will have a screening in the near future. Meanwhile here is a link to a short outtake from the film and more importantly, the official website and home for the art of Andy Anderson: Neu Pop International:
