The Forgotten Picture Show: The Last Summer on Earth

So Television, 2010

Though I’d known Steve Oram and Tom Meeten for ten years and performed live with them so many times it would be impossible to count, for some reason this is the first thing we ever filmed together. The pilot for a potential TV series which would look at a different film each week, this one tells the story of two young men in the 1950s and their attempts to impress the same girl. The idea was inspired by a live piece Steve, Tom and Alice Lowe used to perform at Club Fantastico about a loser called ‘The Ginger Goofball’. Most of the cast are Club F veterans so this is the nearest thing to a Club Fantastico film you’re ever likely to see. Filmed the day after a bash for my tenth wedding anniversary, at least one of us has a tremendous hangover, though by some great fortune it was being filmed at Trinity Buoy Wharf, just down the road from my house, so I was allowed to turn up at midday instead of the crack of dawn like everyone else. Despite this late start, I still wasn’t allowed on set till after five and we only had time to do two takes of the first half of my scene and only one of the second half where I wrestle with the tea urn. Hopefully I got away with it but there’s always the temptation to want to re-do these things.
