Frank City Film Club is an odd fictional blog series about a group of late twentysomethings trying to make film projects together. It is written from the perspective of Brian Snuff (Snufty), the type of person who picked to study film theory over filmmaking. He picks apart his life and that of his friends in much the same way. He’s obsessed with subtext and internally structures the dialogues that goes on like a script.
You may notice as the narrative progresses (or doesn’t, as is the way), not that much filmmaking actually gets done. The project is partly satire on trying to be pro-active with ‘creative types’. But I write it with huge affection for my friends. I write Frank City Film Club to exorcise bug-bears and express my love for the simple, largely meaningless conversations folk have. This is my talky project, aimlessly strung-together like Richard Linklater’s film Slacker, but nowhere near as good.
I’m not sure where it’s going, or how long I’ll run it for & I’m not always that regular in posting it. Luckily it completely lacks cliff-hangers and you can dip in and out in a leisurely manner.
