The Rabbit Film Section – What To Expect This Year

 

Words by Naomi Jeffreys

So, what can you expect from The Rabbit Film Section this year?

This year, we aim to get as many exclusive interviews from actors, producers, screenwriters and directors, all for you.

You can expect an exclusive interview with an actor who is forging her silver screen career in an upcoming period drama adaptation — but we won’t say who it is yet, you’ll just have to keep coming back to us to see who it is!

We also have an interview with an American producer in an Independent film, which is going to be posted very soon.

The Rabbit Film is passionate about all things film and by extension, music and theatre,. Anything which challenges us as a reader or an audience member.

But what we need is YOU, to keep coming back to us, because we write for you, the reader.  So keep reading, keep watching, listening films.

-Naomi Jeffreys, Editor of Film Section, The Rabbit, University of Essex

The Past In Our Pockets, The Future In Our Hearts

Words by Naomi Jeffreys

“This is a show about every single one of us, the past in our pockets, the future in our hearts and us, ourselves, very much stuck, trapped forever, in the tiny eternal moment between the two.”

There are moments in life, where we must learn from the past, quite often it shapes us and move onwards in to the future. And we must be a part of the present, the now.

Film makers are like that, quite often, their films reflect something of their past, some demon they are confronting. Legendary Director, Tim Burton (Frankenweenie) confronted one of his bullies in one of his best known films, Edward Scissorhands. The character Jim was a representation of all the jocks who bullied Burton at high school. And his end is rather dramatic, rather cinematic. But was one of the scenes which has made Burton such a brilliant director.

The Rabbit Film has had a momentous week this week, a week of firsts, a week of learning. And, a week of exclusives, for you. Keep your eyes peeled, for the coming term. It’s set to be a corker.
