Last month marked the first anniversary of The Velvet Onion Live – our inaugural live event, which will hopefully be followed by many more in the future.
That star studded event featured the likes of Dave Brown, James Cook, Antony Elvin, Stephen Evans, Suzy Evelyn Hall, Mike Fielding, Richard Glover, Alex Kirk, Alice Lowe, David McNeill, Tom Meeten, Steve Oram, Laura Patch, Richard Sandling, Holly Jane Shears, Rachel Stubbings, Will Summers, Dan Tetsell, Gareth Tunley, Dolly Wells and the disembodied voice of Rich Fulcher.
Over the coming weeks, as we inch slowly towards putting on more events in the future, we’re showcasing footage from that glorious night of madcap fun.
This week’s slice of lo-fi posterity features Gareth Tunley and Alex Kirk as painter/decorators turned film directors Ridley & Tony Scott. Their tales of accidental Hollywood success had us all in stitches, and you can see why below.
This installment is dedicated to the memory of the real Tony Scott.
Come back each Friday for a brand new installment, and stay peeled for further developments of TVO Live: The Sequel, coming soon…
