2. ARTISTIQUE
Ken Wilson (West Yorks)
An amateur cameraman, Phillipe [sic] (Jason Rigby) is discovered by Jaques [sic] (Simon Wilson) while out on a shoot. There then follows a discussion (in pidgin French) about the merits and demerits of various styles and techniques of movie-making - with many lovely 'in' jokes for all movie-makers. Lots of fun (including the accents)!
