Or Every Screen Has a Silver Lining

BLADES IT IS
Or Pencils and Other Pointy Things…
RECLAIMING THE BLADE
While it’s clear that swords are nasty sharp pointy things designed exclusively for poking holes in people when it’s not lopping bits off them, they are nonetheless an intergral part of our cultural heritage.
I don’t consider myself an expert on anything much, so I was quite surprised when a company called Galatia Films got in touch and asked if I would do a little filmed interview for a production called “Reclaiming the Blade”.

I didn’t really say that, I cautiously replied that it sounded very interesting and made sure I had some clean shirts ironed just in case.
As it turns out, the film is narrated by John Rhys-Davis, and has interviews with all manner of famous people who fiddle around (carefully) with sharp pointy things.
With folks like Peter Johnsson, Bob Anderson, John Waller and others participating, not to mention the likes of the Royal Armouries and the Weta Workshop, it looks like a rich program.
