Neil Gaiman's "A Short Film About John Bolton"

DIRECTED BY - Neil Gaiman

Known for his best-selling graphic novel, SANDMAN, alongside other titles such as his novel AMERICAN GODS, and his foray into children's fiction, CORALINE, Neil Gaiman takes a step into the film world with A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON. Basing his movie around the work of acclaimed artist John Bolton and his paintings of nude, vampire-like creatures, Gaiman aims to investigate exactly where the ideas and inspirations behind Bolton's work come from. Sending notorious British interviewer Marcus Brigstocke into the fray in order to get to the bottom of Bolton's approach, Gaiman offers a thorough dissection of the motivations behind the vampire artist's work. This is a highly unique and personal film which meditates on the artistic process, as well as providing a fascinating profile of a maverick talent.
