Currently the Edinburgh International Film Festival, short EIFF, is running and bringing together a fantastic selection of films as well as very interesting people from the moving image industry.
Last Thursday the restored version of The Red Shoes was shown at the Filmhouse, unfortunately I could not make it. However when it screened 2/3 years ago in the cinema at 2pm on a Tuesday afternoon, I remember very well that I took a day of work to see it on the Big Screen and it was amazing! Moira Shearer's aura, movement and pace as well as the ones of the film just draw you in.
Last night spoke to Craig McCall from Mofilms and he had seen the restored verison of The Red Shoes on Thursday. We discussed the physical empathy this film creates within the audience as well as the great dancing personalities of Shearer and Leonide Massine. McCall added that the new colour grading gives the film a whole new depth and emotional emphasis and should not be underestimated. Personally, I mainly focus on the look of the movements and the composition of the frame but I will now keep a keener eye on colours, too and I cannot wait to see the 'new' version of The Red Shoes!
