Posted by michaeljk on August 18, 2007

Documentary making involves taking risks. But there’s only so much I’ll do in the line of duty.

Lovely driver

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 18, 2007

Long car journeys can play merry havoc with your skin. My handy hints are to limit the use of air conditioning, drink lots of water and smear tapas on your face – avoiding brie/anything fish based (I learnt that the hard way). Drive safe now.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

67: Road from Rome

Posted by michaeljk on August 13, 2007

A new day, a new director and a new sibling.

It’s not going to be easy to fill Jonti’s shoes – he’s a 7 and I’m a 10 – but a challenge is a challenge and I’m the man to take it on.

Bloom & Gloom

Posted by Ian Jones on August 13, 2007

JontiLeaves

Jonti’s gone and it seems a bit quiet.

That day when he put the camera down was good fun, and he only sneered twice. I think his job was quite hard, with all the heavy lifting and the pointing and the ensuring Truth.

He never paid me the 4 Euros he owed me from when he bet my tin wouldn’t have stuff in but it did.

The truth will out

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 13, 2007

Jonti's Camera

Many people ask me how I feel about Jonti leaving – I simply reply “Keep your nose out. Mind your business. Shut your mouth or I’ll shut it for you”.

My reply is thus because I don’t want to encourage speculation as to what went on between us in the biblical sense. I will – under duress – go as far as to say his impartiality was threatened. By his partiality to me.

I thought we’d had it all out over a sit-down chicken lunch in Reims but in recent weeks his amorous advances returned with gusto & so had to leave. I blame the heat.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

66:Jonti’s Toast

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 12, 2007

Whenever I have to break some heavy news an inane grin creeps onto my face.

‘Becky, Grandpa’s dead.’

Inane grin.

‘Sorry babe, my hectic schedule means I can no longer give this relationship the time it deserves.’

Inane grin.

‘Mrs Weingarten, we accidentally knocked over your antique cabinet while removing our lighting rig from your living room.’

Inane grin.

This grin tends to stop the recipients of the news from taking it seriously.
I’m praying I can keep it at bay tonight.

Still there.

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 12, 2007

still there

I had a prophetic dream last night. Something fell off the car like the mirror or one of the headlights.

Love & light,

I received a rather surprising phone call this morning.

Too distracted to blog.

61: Lost in the Colosseum

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 7, 2007

Dawn thinks she’s being followed. I said “Hello, what do you think I’ve been doing here all this time”.

Not funny apparently.

59: Money for Nothing

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 5, 2007

This is genuine. Not one of these fake scenes from those lightweight documentaries which are everywhere at the moment.

57: Fonzi Duplo

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 3, 2007

Italy really is Jonti Bloom’s spiritual home:

– The best cars
– The best food
– The best clothes
– The best women
– The best football

And it’s acceptable for you to live with your mum past the age of 30.

56B: Magpie

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 2, 2007

Always a sensitive film-maker and seeker of truth, I feel that I may be touching sensitive areas. And paying for quite a lot.
