Caption 2007

I spent my Saturday afternoon at Caption, the longest running small press comics convention in the world. Actually, this was kind of Caption 2.2 being the second year of a new era, having moved out of the city centre to the more bohemian (sort of) Cowley Road area.

I got plenty of good footage at Caption, and some nice interviews but there were some serious acoustic issues - hence no footage from the panels, which were taking place adjacent to some high-energy building site action - and a lot of dark areas that I couldn't myself light. Nonetheless, I've put together what is, essentially, a little video podcast from the convention, explaining what it's all about and how Caption are different from their bigger, and perhaps better known competition.

Enjoy.

Good stuff, if ironically for a convention named CAPTION, and a post named CAPTION 2007, the film could have done with more captions. The only artists I could definitively put a name to were Al Davison and D'Israeli (and his prominent non-speaking part).

Groovy film, and a very good capture of Caption!
