Hello Ross n all
We are just having a brainstorm in purgatory here - that place where the dead have not quite decided where they are going yet.
Anyway, we would like to make some suggestions about revising the current material for the show.
We think that Scrooge McDuck is a tad too long and could do with some editing - not loads, but could we look at this again to see what could be removed from the piece. This is based on feedback we had from the audience about the night in June last year. We are at risk of losing the audience if we put a piece that is too long after the length of Ghost Town.
Thinking about Ghost Town, we also think this was tiny bit long and could do with some cropping - say 30 secs or so. Also, no Citizen Kane in the footage? e.g. Rosebud - the most famous death scene in cinema? Think this should defo go in!
We think that the Grim Reaper's scythe needs serious 'blinging up' for the 22nd. Claire to sort.
It might be worth thinking about Charles Manson again and not totally removing it. The video of his poem e.g '...the truth is in your slaughter houses...' etc is particularly poignant. All it needs is some kind of intro into establishing Manson as truth twisiting itself into fiction. Also consider placing this after Autopsy, leading the newsreader's poem into news footage i.e. Manson.
Ross / Panda - wot yer say? You are The Gaffers on this one.
