Strip For Me 32: The Dreams of Secret Cinema
The thirty second issue of Strip For Me features a selection of the Dreams of Secret Cinema strips that originally ran at thesequential.com
After the projectors have been shut off and the TV screens have dimmed, unwatched films dream. It’s there in the crackle of cooling reels, in the butterfly trembling of DVD cases, the aching sigh and shift of elderly video cassettes. Images sputter and reconfigure, they warp and merge into new and secret shapes. Stories burst and scab over, scripts flutter and flame. Unwatched films dream new cinemas, stories hidden in shivering loops of celluloid.
Drawn as I watch films, I tease new stories from the images that I’ve taken down, transforming familiar narratives into something new and strange. It’s fun. Try it.
“It’s an intriguing idea, well executed artistically, but loses me narratively” – Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International
“Movies and comics, two of my favourite things, brought together…” – Joe Gordon, Forbidden Planet International
