Whenever the Picturehouse cinema network announces Q&As you suspect a multi-media event throughout its national – or even international -network, which is why the live tour of former Stangler Hugh Cornwell is such a big thing.
Hugh is traveling the country with the theatrical release of Blueprint in 12 Picturehouse cinemas across the UK for one night only – and he’ll be doing a live Q&A at the Exeter Picturehouse on Tuesday May 27 at 6pm.
Blueprint will be screened once at each venue and there are no further plans to release the film theatrically, and these screenings will precede the North American premiere at the NXNE film festival in Toronto in June.
And the film…
“Blueprint is a feature-length movie about Hugh’s forthcoming Hoover Dam album, recorded and filmed at east London’s famous all-analogue Toe Rag Studio with producer Liam Watson. Hugh has worked with music filmmaker Paul Green and his team to create ‘Blueprint’, and the result is a beautifully crafted film that features Hugh’s band (Caroline Campbell on bass, Chris Bell on drums) playing the entire album live at Toe Rag, with Liam Watson mixing the audio down to stereo two-track, in front of six cameras (including two in the control room). Each song has been given a different ‘look’ in the edit. This footage is inter-cut with an in-depth interview by BBC broadcaster Robert Elms.”
The Hoover Dam album will be available to download totally free from Hugh Cornwall’s site but to increase the incentive to purchase of a physical copy on CD, the physical copy includes Blueprint on DVD.
