Taking advantage of the traffic spike to see if I can get more information/attention on this:
Though the new movie is the first time a major studio has made a movie of V for Vendetta
, it's not the first time V
was put to film. Way back in 1984, a student film was made, roughly eight minutes long. The film was made by Mark Tinkler at Middlesex Polytechnic, and blended art with live-action sequences. It wasn't a full-story adaptation--the movie was only a few scenes from the comic which wasn't even completed at the time. It did utilize the music from David J's V for Vendetta
EP. (which you can read more about here
If anybody has more information about this piece--or even better, in this day of broadband and YouTube, a copy of the film--then by all means send me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I'd love to add as much information about this film when I revise my Movie section.
