More good news! Not only can you stream THE MOON & THE SLEDGEHAMMER, but from today you can also stream BEHIND THE MOON AND THE SLEDGEHAMMER which will be available for a limited time, so if you haven't already seen it, now's your chance.
It's in 2 parts: in part 1 we meet the crew of the film and find out exactly how they worked. Only natural lighting was used and crane shots were improvised with tractors.
In part 2 we meet film's director Philip Trevelyan during a Q&A. He tells us how he met the family and how he came to admire them and their unusual way of life, with particular respect to how they coped so well. He also tells us about exchanges with Mr Page that weren't actually filmed. The audience asks all those questions everyone asks - where was Mrs Page? Why was Mr Page pretending to be an elephant, and the perennial favourite - what happened to the family?
There's only so much you can squeeze into a one hour film. BEHIND... offers an insight and some background to the film.

Weekend sorted! Stream it here:

I would love to have seen some of those radios and TVs that Mr Page built -from a safe distance of course!

We've been meaning to photograph this house just around the corner from us in Totland Bay, Isle of Wight for sometime now.

It reminds us so much of the Page's house in The Moon & Sledgehammer!!

Have you seen this poster? Designed by PT's father, surreal artist Julian Trevelyan. And yes, the spelling mistakes are deliberate! He was a surrealist artist after all!
