Completed Rainbow Orchid, interview with Garen Ewing

Interview with author and comic book creator
GAREN EWING


A conversation about the completing of Garen's adventure book
'The Rainbow Orchid' and his continued Adventures of Julius Chancer


With Table Chat host, Linda Wada

I'm very excited to share with you my second interview with Garen Ewing, the creator of Julius Chancer and his Rainbow Orchid comic book.

In our first interview in April 2009 (Imagination to Print), we talked about the creation and history of The Rainbow Orchid, just before Garen saw his first printed book from Egmont UK.

In this January 2013 interview, we pick-up where we left off. We talk about finishing the book, the promoting, foreign editions, special research projects, comic workshops and the future of Julius Chancer.

This interview is 1 hour and 9 minutes. So grab your favorite beverage, and have a listen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, as we continued the Adventures of Julius Chancer!

A heartily thanks to Garen, for sharing his valuable time with us today, as he shares his 'adventures' in the comic book creating.  LINK TO AUDIO INTERVIEW

Chaplin Pathéscope 'Behind the Screen'

Here's another wonderful Pathéscope 9.5 mm print version of Chaplin's 'Behind the Screen.'

This heavily re-edited film was renamed 'Movie-Making' and shows different takes of the same scenes not seen in the official well-known released film.

Overall, many of the clips are sharper and have more detail, than the official releases. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy! (about 13 minutes - Thanks to Unknown Cinema)
