Work will most likely start towards the end of the summer, but i've written to Jas about it and am awaiting a response! Keep updated by checking our myspace. It's really crap but our website is down, or rather is under construction. It's 'eXtreme films' on myspace. There won't be any mention of Jas yet mind... and don't be put off by the picture please!

I wrote to the old hub records office address and an email. No, I'm not really expecting a reply. Perhaps I should have written 'Check enclosed'?

I think Andrew's right, could probably make something out of the dvd's if they were cleaned up a bit... watch this space.

look at all those programs that dont always include ppl. i mean you get films on jim morrison after he died with co stars and fans talking about him. Even if its just us talking the fans saying memories recalling live events, clips from the dvd's us saying interesting facts things he said talking about our younger days watching babylon zoo im sure with the footage it would still look good. we could even talk about him getting in contact weather it was really jas sort of leaving it open to a possible mystery hoast, a possible jas sightings part with spooky music. showing the picture enhanced of him doing that acoustic gig e.t.c

Well our latest effort is in the editing process (which means i'm spending 5 hours a day on sony-vega feeling very strung-out) and shuld be all over by the end of June. The Jas Documentary is something my friends are happy to work on so long as it's good. I've got a few uni commitments and a new job right now so it's all a bit hectic. I'll start playing about with the dvd footage when I get some time and maybe put a trailer on youtube guys.

Stay positive! cool.gif

Hey everyone.

People seem so dispondant right now, I wanted to share an idea that's been going round in my head for months to try and cheer everyone up a bit.

I studied film at university and at the moment am finishing work on my first feature, a low-budget comedy set in the 1980's. I'm part of a group of artists in Edinburgh who make shorts for the festival and... well just for kicks really! Over the last year and a half we've been getting more serious and this new film we hope, will attract some kind of attention (note how abstract I am with the term 'attention').

With this in mind we're applying for a grant from the Scottish Arts Council for a future project and I've put forward a reasonable suggestion to the group of a documentary about Jas and his music, his rise and fall and the media storm he went through during the Spaceman era (it's never been done). A kind of 'Poor boy from Wolverhamton makes good' vibe.

Even if we don't get any money, and are laughed off and humilianted, I intend to write to Jas asking if he'd be interested in taking part. Basically I'd travel with a camera to wherever he is and interview him, try to get in touch with the other band members and The Sandkings and see what I can do. It's all super-vague I know, but although I'm not about much on the board I am a huge BZ and SK fan, to the point of obsession, so this is something I think I need to do. I've got the means (cameras, lights microphones and editing gear) and the motivation after all.

This idea begs the question: What would you actually do with a Jas Mann documentary? My answer? God knows! Show it at art galleries, offer it to VH1 or Ch4?

I'm also aware that people have been trying to get in touch with Mr. Mann with little success, I'm just hoping that an official looking letter from a film company would get forwarded to him.

Anyways, let me know what you think...

Futures.
Simon.
