Films that have not, so far, materialised into film.

And some homemade "films" that made it to YouTube and Vimeo.

#Unmadefilms #HomeMadeFilms


UNMADE FILMS  was conceived 25 years ago as a magazine in print. Art house films had a substantial audience at that time but even then screen writers were frustrated by the compromises of the film market. Fewer films get made that go beyond the objective of appealing to teenage boys, who are the essential demographic that provides the yardstick of potential profitability for Hollywood producers, and the British high street Odeon franchise, that is fanatical about profit, but has little interest in cinema. These pages are dedicated to the scripts of films that have not so far materialised into film.  MANIFESTO

Featured still images illustrate stories on this website, this year to date.

the one and only Channel of Love on VIMEO


Love is a very splendid thing. A movie called "Love" was created by us Monks at Shoestringonline. We then discovered that there were 10,729 movies on vimeo with the same title. Most seem to be syrup, or church, or just bad, or all three. Surely there would be enough stuff to start a Love Channel.

Love Channel was born, or was there already a Love Channel?

Apparently not.

An extremely vivid dream last night.

Where cool is meaningless and

1964 was an optimistic time.

The Beatles had conquered America,

and I had passed my driving test
