A painting from James Jessop's "Subway Fiction" series
Parts 1-3 of DOTS, a series of films about London’s Burning Candy crew, have just been posted on Babelgum.com. The films follow members of Burning Candy as they travel around the world. So far, Luc Price aka Cyclops has visited India to work with signpainters, Rowdy has traveled to the Australian outback to see ancient wall-painting techniques and graffiti-history obsessed James Jessop saw New York City for the first time. Here are their stories…
(okay here’s a trailer first actually)
And now the actual films…
Bomb Chaser with James Jessop, which is without a doubt the highlight of DOTS so far and the one you should watch if you only watch one of these:
Note from the editor: It should be mentioned that in the past I’ve been paid by the people making DOTS to help out on various parts of the project (though I was paid in artwork). Also, I still do communicate with them and help them out in small ways, but I don’t get paid for that. Also, for more info on this project and how you can help the film get made, check out Arrested Motion. – RJ
