It’s been a hectic week. As you’ve no doubt already seen, Periodical #2 finally went live this week. Having been caught up in iTunes limbo for some four weeks I had actually started to doubt whether it would actually see the light of day! But alas, it’s here, and the response has been genuinely overwhelming, and actually very inspiring. It’s set all manner of fervent activity in to play behind the scenes, with the planning of our next issue very much underway. That’ll be available in the Summer, which in turn leads to a whole new phase of activity heading in to the end portion of 2013. Exciting times.
Seeing as though this is the first post-proper Periodical Editorial I’d just like to take the opportunity to reinforce a few things said across different websites and social mediums over the last couple of days. I’d like to say thank you to everyone involved, be it in a production sense, or as a reader. Thank you for the countless retweets of the various plugs for the journal(literally, I lost count at 94). Wednesday was abuzz with Periodical discussion, so much so that notification services had to be switched off across all devices! (What a thoroughly modern woe!).
With Periodical out of the picture for now, I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with Hope Lies at 24 Frames Per Second. This piece was actually going to originally be an extensive re-evaluation/confessional regarding my own relationship with television, but alas it proved to big an to be able to focus on properly this week. That ought to come to fruition over the course of the next couple of days, so keep an eye out for that. Rob Girvan’s further dispatches from Edinburgh are forthcoming too, while I’m looking forward to seeing how the innovative release pattern being afforded Ben Wheatley’s new film A Field In England plays out too. Expect further commentary as and when.
