By complete coincidence two of the Missing Hen team are contributing to video projects tonight - in Birmingham and Dusseldorf.
Firstly, Peter's shot and edited a film of the Goodwood Revival, to be screened tonight at Stan's Cafe's 24 Hour Scalextric in a warehouse in Birmingham. The event's designed to tie into the 24 hour Le Mans driving race that takes place this weekend and films are being curated by 7inch Cinema. Brum, brum.
UPDATE: Here are some rather groovy "Through The Viewfinder" pics of the event, from Pete Ashton's blog.
Then, by way of explanation of what Phil was doing in a carpark wearing a long black ladies' evening glove a couple of week's ago (see pics), here's details of Cafe Continental, a cabaret show Phil helped film at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Kings Heath as part of a recreation of vintage German Television for an arts festival currently running in Dusseldorf. This page has details of what's on, but it's in German, so here's the relevant paragraph from it (translated badly by Google):
The best-known entertainment television broadcast of the English is the first time by all television channels over Europe. Alexandra Taylor (Birmingham) & guests.
I trust that makes it all very clear. Thank you.
