Iain just sent photos from the set of “By Our Selves”.

Notes from location: nr. 01

We have received a note from Iain sent from location while shooting the new movie – and did I mention that you could contribute to making this movie happen by taking part to the kickstarter campaign?

“Amazed to discover character of ‘Norton’ on the cover of the latest gathering of ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, while visiting Northampton, where the magus Moore delivered a spellbinding account of the town’s relationship to John Clare (and the ultimate black hole).

Norton, looking more than ever like a Nazi dentist, is on rear cover, next to the spine.”
— Iain Sinclair
