A while back I was asked to contribute to a book published by Intellect about movies set in London. I did.
Finally the book is ready and will be on sale from Monday 12th Sept 2011.
WORLD FILM LOCATIONS: LONDON focuses on specific scenes from around films set in London and focus on the location and how they represent London through the unique perspective of that film. There are also longer essays on various aspects of London on film. The book is fully illustrated with images from the films and maps of locations.
I personally focused on scenes from:
Blackmail (Alfred Hitchcock, 1929)
The Man Who Knew Too Much (Alfred Hitchock, 1956)
Bullet Boy (Saul Dibb, 2004)
The Bourne Ultimatum (Paul Greengrass, 2007)
There will be loads of great stuff in this book, if you're interested in movies, cities, travel then check it out.
On sale from 12th Sept 2011 at Waterstones, WHSmiths, Amazon, Intellect Books and MoMA (Museum of Modern Art in New York City yo!) There is a whole series of these books being released about cities all over the world, they're going to make for a great collection.
