James Boswell

Yale University @ UWS

’The Importance of James Boswell in World Literature: A Masterclass with Dr Gordon Turnbull’

(General Editor of Boswell’s private papers at Yale University)

UWS Ayr Campus Saturday 12 May, 2.30-3.30pm

 

Free admission to all involved in education

If you think that this stimulating event will be of interest to colleagues and friends, please pass on this email.

James Boswell’s biographical account of Dr Samuel Johnson (‘Life of Johnson’) was published 220 years ago this May: it has never been out of print.

Boswell is regarded by many as the inventor of the modern biography. He was also the author of the pioneering travel book ‘An Account of Corsica’ as well as the famous journal outlining his tour of the Hebrides. His reputation flourished in the twentieth century with the discovery and publication of his diaries which led to his recognition as one of the greatest diarists in the English language. Boswell may be considered as central in ushering in the confessional memoir which is so popular today and was certainly one of the most innovative writers of the Enlightenment.

As Boswell’s stature grows, nationally and internationally, University of the West of Scotland, in collaboration with the Boswell Book Festival (May 11-13 2012), is hosting a special appearance by Dr Gordon Turnbull, a leading authority on Boswell. Gordon is  brilliantly entertaining and is sure to inspire.

The masterclass, designed for all who have an interest in, or are involved in, the study and teaching of English literature, the Scottish Enlightenment, and social history, will concentrate on Boswell’s genius, and his unique contribution to biography, memoir and travel writing.

Film One- Andrew Pettie

I’m Andrew Pettie, a 3rd year Film-making student looking to find actors for a 15 minute short film that will be shot in Ayr over 3-4 days sometime between the 10th and 19th of April hopefully.

It’s a story about despair, love, and hope. A young man and woman meet in difficult circumstances. Both have forgotten how to live and it is through each other that they learn how to once again. As their friendship blossoms the question is whether they can admit their true feelings, or will their fears keep them apart. In terms of tone if I had to compare it to other films out there I’d say Beginners, Garden State, and 500 Days of Summer.

At every stage I have been aiming this film at the festival circuit and I hope to showcase this to a wide audience. I think this film offers a really good opportunity not just for showreel material but for anyone looking to challenge themselves with a meaningful and deep role.

The parts I am looking to fill are:
REECE – Early 20s, lead male.
IONA – Early 20s, lead female.
DR MULVEY – 30s onwards, could be a part for either sex.

I am not absolutely set on the ages of the leads. If two people came forward who I really felt worked, I could rework the script. Ideally I would like to audition for the parts very soon. I will try to organise a date as I hear when people are available.

If anyone would like to know more about the film, or to see a rough draft of the script, please do not hesitate to send me a message on Facebook or email me at [email protected]

Film Two- Martin Jelonek
I’m a 3rd Year FMSW student who’s making his short film these coming weeks and I am still looking for actors! As this is about to be my last film project for uni before buggering back home to Germany, I intend to make this my best film yet with the best equipment the uni and I have to offer and will likewise launch it on as many prestigious and well-known film festivals as possible.

WHAT: “9 Minutes” is about a YOUNG MAN’s wait for his GIRLfriend’s pregnancy test in a shopping mall food court. Self-centered and still immature at heart, he day-dreams and remembers various past moments in his current relationship to distract himself from the unbearable wait and reflects on himself, only to be disturbed by an ever friendly, concerned and slightly obnoxious foreign waiter. Can nine minutes be enough to man up and assume responsibility for something that might turn into nine fateful months to come? A bittersweet romantic comedy, with little to no dialogue.

ROLES that still need to be filled:

- GIRL: around 20, female lead
- GUARDIAN: female, 30′s to 50′s

(other roles already taken:
- YOUNG MAN: mid 20′s, male lead (taken)
- WAITER: male, mid 20′s, colored, thick accent (taken)
- BOY: male, 6 to 10 (taken))

WHERE:
- Kyle Center, Ayr
- Ayr Beach
- Playground next to Pirate Pete’s, Ayr
- Flat in Ayr

WHEN:
a) 1 day THIS WEEK between TUES 3rd and FRI 6th, 8:30 am to midday (only for GUARDIAN)
b) 3-4 days in the week between MON 16th and SUN 22nd

CONTACT (for script, questions etc.):
mobile: 07514 806 867
email: [email protected]

NOTE: Since it’s a no/low budget production, there is no extra payment. Catering will be provided though and if necessary travel expenses (receipts only).

Hope to hear from you and looking forward to work with you!

Martin
