The Emperor’s Old Clothes

In 2010 I wrote a feature film in rhyming verse called ‘Acts of Godfrey’. I don’t really know why and it turned out that nor did anyone else. Through sheer force of Nietzchian will I found private funding and for a brief period (about 2 weeks) it was watchable in cinemas. I went to see it at the Vue in Shepherd’s Bush. Having written and directed the film I thought it only reasonable that I write the score also, so I did. The Emperor’s Old Clothes (which takes belief in God round the back of the bike sheds for a sound kicking) played over the end credits. The film is one of the lowest scoring films ever on Rotten Tomatoes with 8%.
