Trust Me. I’m the Doctor.

I do love wordplay. Every phrase on here is iconic to the last few seasons of Doctor Who. Does anybody know if there is a particular term for this? Using words inside an image for artistic purposes?

Warning: The below image does contain spoilers from Season 5 and 6 of Doctor Who.

Fan of the last two season of Doctor Who will find this hilarious. Others, not so much, but you should catch up so you can.

Video: In The Skin of the Universe (A Doctor Who Music Video)

A fan made video featuring clips from the entire 5th Season of Doctor Who. Excellently done. Some slight spoilers but it mostly won’t make sense unless you’ve seen the season.

Writing: Open, Closed, and the Moment They Figure It Out

Open, Closed, and the Moment They Figure It Out by Doris Egan [Tightrope Walker]

An article about a style of writing mystery, focusing primarily on television shows. Focuses on the idea of an Open/Closed storytelling and a trope commonly used in American television known as the Moment They Figure it out.

The article also a great analysis of the first two episodes of season six of Doctor Who (2005) in relation to those topics. Very illuminating.

Hugo Nominations – Visual Media (Part 3 of 3)

by on Apr.25, 2011, under Articles, Films, News, Television, Videos, Visual Media, Writing

The Hugo Award Nominations are available

Man, do we have some great nominations this year. The Hugo Award is the leading award for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy. The Hugos are awarded each year by the World Science Fiction Society, at the World Science Fiction Convention. In part one I went over the novel, short stories, and relate work nominees. Part two I went over and speculated on the Best Graphic Novel category. Now let me go over the categories everybody is familiar with:

Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form

Which in laymen’s terms is “The Movie” category. Nothing in this list should surprise you. Dramatic Presentation for Hugo Awards is another name for theatrical film.

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, screenplay by Steve Kloves; directed by David Yates (Warner)
  • How to Train Your Dragon, screenplay by William Davies, Dean DeBlois & Chris Sanders; directed by Dean DeBlois & Chris Sanders (DreamWorks)
  • Inception, written and directed by Christopher Nolan (Warner)
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, screenplay by Michael Bacall & Edgar Wright; directed by Edgar Wright (Universal)
  • Toy Story 3, screenplay by Michael Arndt; story by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton & Lee Unkrich; directed by Lee Unkrich (Pixar/Disney)

Really there isn’t a bad movie in this list. Long time readers of this blog will know, of course, that I’m throwing my weight behind Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I love the movie. I love the comic for which it draws the majority of its ideas. The only movie that comes really close to beating that is How to Train Your Dragon. Both were excellent movies but Scott Pilgrim and is a perfect world, they’d both win and have it be meaningful.

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form

Next we have our short form dramatic presentation, which can actually draw from anything. For example we have three particular episodes of Doctor Who:

  • Doctor Who: “A Christmas Carol,” written by Steven Moffat; directed by Toby Haynes (BBC Wales)
  • Doctor Who: “The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang,” written by Steven Moffat; directed by Toby Haynes (BBC Wales)
  • Doctor Who: “Vincent and the Doctor,” written by Richard Curtis; directed by Jonny Campbell (BBC Wales)

All of them excellent episodes from the fifth season of Doctor Who. I’d actually have a hard time selecting only one of these.

But in comparison we have a short film, originally posted on you tube entitled:

Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury, written by Rachel Bloom; directed by Paul Briganti

Warning. The above video does have rather explicit lyrics, if the title didn’t tip you off to this.

This is both a surprise and not much of a surprise. The Hugo Awards are well-known for not being shy when it comes to the concept of sex and sexuality. The appreciation, humor, and appeal in the film is readily apparent.

And that is the last of my coverage of the nominations. There are, of course, many other categories including best editor, best fan writer, etc. Please take the time to look over the names and see if there is anybody you would like to congratulate.
