It’s not often we choose a music video as our pick of the month, but DN favourite Romain Gavras’ Bad Girls promo is so damn good, we couldn’t possibly pick anything else. Although, with the unavoidable Valentines day slap bang in the middle of the month, this
marketing ploy celebration of love seemed to bring out the romantic side in filmmakers with Les Petits Bonheurs des Objects, I Love Sarah Jane, Rest and our Show Your Love with Hearts posts showcasing some truly heartwarming moments. And did we say that last month was the weird one? If so, then the bone crunching Inky Pinky, dogs licking faces I’m a Body, paranoid Magnificat visions and freaky message of granternal love to the future that is I Am Your Grandma made February the official month of bizarre. Oh yeah, and we also featured a short called Alex and Her Arse Truck, which was amazing, but doesn’t stray too far from what its title suggests.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
