CELEBRITY PORTRAIT INTERVIEW

THE BACKGROUND

Graham tried to get Ian to sit for his first project - "Poetraits" - back in 2003, but in the end Ian didn't have time to take part in this way; although he did generously write the introduction to the accompanying catalogue book. At that time he told Graham that if ever he was doing another project in future in which he thought he might be suitable then he should let him know. So this interview is that project.

The idea is that the "Revelation" technique can be used within a tv-length interview-style show, in order that the whole development of the image is shown in less than 30 mins. This will then be sent to TV people with the hope that they might commission a series.

As it's just a pilot, and since Graham was responsible for all aspects of production (camera, video editing etc as well as just painting and animation) it hopefully represents the potential of the idea, even if it falls short of a professional tv-quality product.
