Marc Thomas, editor of Plastik Magazine, is introducing a brand new comedy film event at The Gate Arts and Community Centre, starting this Sunday, 2nd October – it sounds a lot of fun! He tells us all about it here:
Tom Betts, who runs Moviemaker in Chapter is probably one of the few dozen people who can and that’s why I’m really excited that he’s co-written Plastik Picture Parade.
Plastik Picture Parade, which takes place at The Gate Arts Centre on Sunday 2 October at 7:30pm (free entry), is a new comedy game show all about film. As well as Tom Betts, Plastik Picture Parade was written by Ellen Waddell, who writes a monthly column on Plastik Magazine (http://plastik.me/category/pedantic-about-film/). It will be presented by Robin Morgan who also writes a column on Plastik (http://plastik.me/category/dick-whittington-and-other-aspirations/) and was designed by Adam Chard.
We wanted to create an event that people could really engage with rather than just ‘going to a film event’. That’s why we’ll be picking two people from the audience to make up our panels and also generally involving everyone with a comical approach to film.
There’ll be popcorn, prizes (the event is sponsored by DizzyJam (http://dizzyjam.com)) and a nice little cameo by one of our favourite local musicians who has written a song and recorded a video especially for the evening.
Altogether, it’s going to be a great evening and set in a lovely Roath venue. We couldn’t be much more excited about it.
Plastik Picture Parade takes place at 7:30pm on Sunday 2 October at The Gate Arts Centre, Roath. Entry is free but donations are welcome to cover costs.
