Happy Friday! Thank you Maestro Zonda!
LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

Hi hi.
Time for another episode. This time it's Project Avalon in the spotlight. This was one of the first episodes I saw thanks to the compilation tapes. It was nostalgic to watch it once again. This blog post also features discussion about the smaller characters who feature in the series. https://watchingb...haracters/. I hope you enjoy. All the best, Tim

Please keep the blogs coming Zonda. Reading them is often the highlight of my day (or possibly week). I really like Project Avalon. Lots going on actionwise and a great location for filming - Wookey Hole.
 
Zonda
Thanks so much Briggsy1 Smile

And here is the latest. Maybe some light reading on the way back from Cygnus Alpha for those lucky souls.
This time, it's the lighting under the spotlight. And Ultraworld.

Hi all,
Another month, another episode.
This time it's Countdown.
https://watchingb...ountdowns/
All the best, Tim

WOW THANK YOU**N!
 
Zonda
Thank you! Smile
And here is another episode under the spotlight, with plenty more to say about television production of the 1970's. Deliverance! https://watchingb...on-action/

That is most excellent, Zonda!

Having been a film editor myself, I love the way you explain the process and the thought behind it. You even cite the legendary Walter Murch! If anybody's interested, his book 'In the Blink of an Eye' is a wonderful explanation of how editing works - although of course rules are made to be broken, and editing styles go in and out of fashion like everything else. Look at the pacing of movies or TV dramas from other decades - they aren't always determined by the technology of the time.

The editor who taught me the most was Eddie Mansell at Granada TV - I was his assistant on the first 3 'Prime Suspects'. He showed me how you can not only cut on a blink, but on a plosive syllable (ie 'p' or 'b' ), cutting from MCU to CU in mid-word. Useful both for dramatic effect but also to stitch two shots together where the actor fluffs the lines before or after Wink

But enough about me (I could rabbit on about editing all night) - just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your latest blog. Kudos! Smile

Im so glad to hear this. I remembered you were an Editor by trade, and was going to get your perspective as I was writing it, but I got totally carried away and worried that anything you might have to say would be buried in my waffling! Gotta love a bit of Murch, I've been revisiting his approach recently, and also Amy Jump about how she has healthy arguments with Ben Wheatley about his films and what comes out of their discussions. What you wrote about Eddie Mansell is really interesting - the timing of the cuts really became apparent as I was writing this post. SO glad you enjoyed it, Travisina. Smile

Hello again.

Another post is published, this time for 'Gold'. I also wanted to share my thoughts about season D. I hope you enjoy it.

HOORAY!
Looking forward to it! :-]

Brilliant. Gold has always been one of my favourite Season 4 episodes.
 
Joe Dredd
May I be the first to say it?

That's gold, Tim!

That's gold, Tim!


Seconded.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Thirded.
As I read it, was thinking, "This is SOOOOOO much better than nearly any other B7 blog out there!"
Must check out that link he included, if he praises some other B7 blog, it must be worth checking out!
