Bohemian Rhapsody [Banned Book Review: Brave New World]

I've already mentioned Lovy Boheme and her Banned Book Vlog Project - a quest to read and review a wide range of banned and censored books. Here's the film we made together during her recent visit to London: a vlog review of Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World."

Most of this film was shot on location at Fulwell Cross Library, one of the extraordinary buildings designed by architect Frederick Gibberd and constructed in the 60s. As Lovy says in her blog, the library staff opened up the building after hours and could not have been more helpful, even advising on the correct pronunciation of "Aldous."

Where the brass bands play and feet start to pound...

Shot on miniDV, edited and post-produced in Blender 2.5. With thanks to Lewis and Mike, the staff at Redbridge Libraries and Redbridge County Council, the Blender and Freesound communities, and a big shout out to everyone at blogcatalog. Happy Banned Books Week!
