NEWS – May 2018
BREAKING NEWS! Adrian Mathews has a video blog with over 50 videos to date – Vlad’s Vlog. Last month, on 22 April 2018, it won the prize for best “Experimental Film” at the Beaugency Film Festival in France.
“Discover Vlad’s Vlog, the diary of a rural flaneur. Short, rambling, incidental videos of negligible importance recording trivial details in the lives of Vlad, his dog Marlowe, and whatever unwitting extras happen to get in the way of the camera. The action and inaction take place in Touraine, central France.” Originally vlog posts were in English, subtitled in French; now they’re more frequently in French, subtitled in English, or a mixture of both languages.
