Episode 48 : Nurse Shirley Foster with Maria Galindo

We continue with our series of special shows covering A Clockwork Orange, commemorating the 50th anniversary of its 1971 release. Hopefully you’ve heard our previous episode with Shirley and Tony Jaffe and their tales of working on the film, as this one is is a bit of a tie in. 

We’re gonna hear from director Maria Galindo about her A Clockwork Orange-inspired short film Nurse Shirley Foster, which stars the aforementioned wonderful actress Shirley Jaffe.

Maria Galindo was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. She was a musician for many years, and also developed in interest in photography. In 2013, while living in Barcelona, she woke up one day and said “it’s now or never” and began writing her first script, A Slice of Life in Barcelona. She would use this film to showcase what she is capable of. She wrote, directed, and edited the film with no formal schooling, and on a shoestring budget. After establishing her own independent film company, Mayhem Film Kreations, she developed and directed the short films Witch Hour, and the subject of our conversation with her, Nurse Shirley Foster. 

James Marinaccio and Stephen Rigg had the chance to catch up with Maria to discuss the film. And we’ll also connect with our previous episode by hearing more from Shirley Jaffe about her experience working with Maria Galindo on this unique project. So, hang with us as we peel the Orange yet again, to unveil yet another layer.

A Clockwork Orange with Shirley and Tony Jaffe

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Ad_47a0j1p....

Episode 47 : A Clockwork Orange with Shirley and Tony Jaffe

Shirley Jaffe is a British actress who trained at the Central School of Speech & Drama in 1954. Among other early jobs, she was in the first British Theatre in the Round Company at Scarborough, with Stephen Joseph and later Alan Ayckbourn.

Her film career began in the mid-’50s with Crime/Dramas The Passing Stranger in 1954, and The Secret Tent in 1956.

Shirley was also a regular cast member of the long-running TV serial Emergency Ward 10 as Nurse Angela Foster in the late ’60s, and in 1970 she appeared in Hammer’s Taste the Blood of Dracula with the late great Christopher Lee.

She appeared on television in the infamous Michael Jackson's Earth Song live performance at The Brits in 1996, and as a Greek nun in Little Britain Abroad. She’s directed and acted in plays in Brighton, Edinburgh, The West End, and Helsinki festivals and recently played Irene in the award-winning British feature Ambleton Delight. She was nominated for a Star Award in the Brighton Fringe for her performance as "Nana" in the musical, Here Comes the Bride.

More recently she appeared with her husband Tony in the music video to Spankox’s “To The Club”. Her latest film is called Nurse Shirley Foster

This is Kubrick’s Universe and so…… in 1971 Shirley made an appearance in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, when she played a nurse who helps administer the first round of Ludovico's treatment to Alex DeLarge, of course played inimitably by Malcolm McDowell.

Skybreak, the home she shared with her husband Tony, was also featured in the film, as the interior location for the scene in which Alex and his Droogs attack a writer and his wife (played by Patrick Magee and Adrienne Corri).

Capturing Kubrick with Dmitri Kasterine

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_46_Adverts6...

Episode 46 : Capturing Kubrick with Dmitri Kasterine

Dmitri Kasterine was born in 1932 and was educated at Radley College, Oxfordshire. In 1961 he began his professional career as a photographer, working for publications such as Queen and The Daily Telegraph Magazine.

In 1986, he left Britain to move to the United States, which he had first visited on an assignment to photograph Mick Jagger in Los Angeles for the Radio Times. In 2000 Dmitri directed and filmed a documentary on Anthony Bourdain as he moved from chef to best-selling author and television celebrity.

Dmitri has photographed numerous cultural figures of the 20th century including Francis Bacon, William Burroughs, Johnny Cash, Roald Dahl, George Carlin David Hockney, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. His work has been on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London and is part of their permanent collection. The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery also has six of his portraits in their permanent collection. 

He had a long association with Stanley Kubrick taking stills on Dr. Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and A Clockwork Orange (1971), and this is why we wanted to speak to him…

2001 A Space Odyssey with Mike Kaplan

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_45a7zdhh.jp...

EPISODE 45 : 2001 A Space Odyssey with Mike Kaplan

Mike Kaplan is a film producer, documentary director, actor, award-winning poster designer, marketing strategist, and songwriter. He has been a close associate to many visionary filmmakers including Robert Altman, Hal Ashby, Lindsay Anderson, Mike Hodges, Alan Rudolph, and Paul Thomas Anderson.

He directed the documentaries: Luck, Trust & Ketchup: Robert Altman in Carver Country, which showed Altman's filmmaking technique for the first time, and Never Apologize, Malcolm McDowell's tour de force performance documentary about Lindsay Anderson, an official Cannes Film Festival selection.

As an independent distributor in the UK, he released Barbet Schroeder's The Valley (Obscured by Clouds), which had over 400 playdates in England, a record at that time for a subtitled film, and Jack Hazan's A Bigger Splash, featuring David Hockney, which played for a year in London setting house records and establishing a day and date release pattern for an art film. Wearing his strategist hat, he rescued Mike Hodges' Croupier from video oblivion as it became the most successful and acclaimed independent film in the United States.

Mike is perhaps best known for conceiving 'The Ultimate Trip'/Star Child campaign for 2001: A Space Odyssey and his subsequent work on A Clockwork Orange working directly for Stanley Kubrick.

Mike tells us about how he got started in A.P.E., the Advertising, Publicity and Exploitation department at MGM in the mid-sixties; His first epiphany experience seeing 2001 just before its initial release; His first encounter with Stanley Kubrick in the projection booth on opening night in New York; Rumours that The Beatles wanted to write a song for 2001; Kubrick asking Mike himself to write the promo song, which he did [and you’ll hear that later as only the second time ever to be officially broadcast, the only other time being at midnight of the new millenium]….. and other tales of Hollywood during it’s second Golden Age.

Stephen Rigg and Mark Lentz conducted the interview.

SHOW NOTES :

You can buy Mike's single on vinyl or digital from Wave Theory records.

The Seafarers with Alexander Pietrzak

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_44_...

Episode 44 : The Seafarers with Alexander Pietrzak

In 1953, twenty-five-year-old Stanley Kubrick shot his first colour film, The Seafarers. In doing so, he also scored an early payday as a young independent filmmaker. Lost to the public for decades, Kubrick’s industrial short film for the SIU was ultimately brought to the attention of Kubrick scholars and fans by an intrepid young enthusiast and filmworker himself named Alexander Pietrzak. Quite a ways back Alexander set out on a mission to see if a copy existed. He did so for one reason — to help ensure Kubrick’s first colour film might see the light of day; as necessary preservation of a historical document.

In 1997 he received a VHS copy from the Seafarers International Union itself, he learned that the original production company had long gone out of business with all its assets liquidated. It turns out that the short film had been "discovered" by a man during an inventory screening in 1972.

Alexander remained tireless in his efforts. After engaging in a ton of correspondence and meeting with disappointment along the way, Alexander persevered. And we fans of all things Stanley are grateful.

This episode takes us back a bit into our own vaults, as Alexander was kind enough to be an early guest on Kubrick’s Universe. Among other stories, in this episode, we’ll hear Alexander share his tale of why it was important to him personally to be given the blessing of the Kubrick Estate to release the short film to how The Seafarers went from near-total obscurity to finally being made available by the U.S. Library Of Congress through archival restoration. Indiana Jones himself would be proud. We’ll also hear excerpts from the rare audio commentary track on The Seafarers DVD, provided by actor/director Keith Gordon and Roger Avery, of Pulp Fiction screenwriting fame. There might even be a personal connection from Alexander’s childhood to a film Kubrick would make twenty years later. Did young Alexander cross paths with Stanley on the set of Barry Lyndon? Well, you’re gonna have to stay tuned to find out. So let’s get into it, shall we?

2001 A Space Odyssey and Beyond with Doug Trumbull

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_43_...

Episode 43 : 2001 A Space Odyssey and Beyond with Doug Trumbull

Hey, everyone. Thanks for checking in with us once again at Kubrick’s Universe, where we continue our ongoing mission to explore the art and vision of the late, great Stanley Kubrick. If you’re listening to this, odds are you’ve seen 2OOI: A Space Odyssey. Well, have you ever seen Close Encounters Of The Third Kind? Star Trek: The Motion Picture? How about Blade Runner? Or even Terrence Malick’s The Tree Of Life? We ask because in this case there is one degree of separation that connects these masterful films. And that connection is Douglas Trumbull. Doug Trumbull is a true legend in the film industry, having gone from animator, to groundbreaking special effects genius, to visionary director, to pioneer in massive technical achievements like the development of IMAX and high frame rate film shooting and projection. 

We had the chance to speak with Doug in spring, 2020. He graciously answered all our most nerdy questions, but also shared some of his personal reflections on, among other things, working with Kubrick.

In this episode, you’ll hear Doug talk about things like how a cold call to Stanley Kubrick led to him getting a job on 2OOI at the ripe young age of 23, creating the dozens of rear-projection screens on the Discovery 1 that represented HAL-9000’s many computer readouts — long before CGI existed, as well as how he helped bring a bland model of the Moonbus to life, and having been one of the few American craftsmen on 2OOI who had carte blanche to work in a multi-disciplinary way on a unionized British set. And of course, we’ll hear insight on his process for developing the Slit-Scan camera, without which there would have been no Stargate sequence; or indeed, arguably the most mind-blowing third act in motion picture history. 

You’ll even hear Doug Trumbull talk with us about his own unique connection to The Wizard Of Oz. But not quite. But at the same time, yeah. Quite. Anyway, it’s complicated. And to quote Dr. Clayton Stonewall Forrester “it would take a scientist to explain it… and I’m simply too mad”. So, let’s just get into it.

Kubrick’s Hour : End of Year Round-Up 2020 with the team from SKAS

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_-_E...

Episode 42 : Kubrick's Hour : End of Year Round-Up 2020 with the team from SKAS

2020. The year that took years, and took years off our lives; and with terrible sadness and personal grief not lost to those of us in Kubrick’s Universe, years away from far too many souls. 2020. That was the year that… sucked. Two-thousand and twenty. The year we… avoided contact. 

Your friends at our humble podcast have had difficulty keeping up with providing new episodes, but not because of a shortage of an amount of great interviews or content, but because of the very same things most of everyone listening has had to contend with — because unforeseen circumstances and survival itself got in the way. In fact, we’ve had some fascinating interviews and great conversations with Kubrick scholars, collaborators, and fans during 2020. We are hanging onto them, archiving them, and working on getting them out to you just as soon as we can.

In the past few years, the Kubrick’s Universe team has put out a “year in review” edition, cultivated by our research, before the holidays. This time around, we’re here to say “And now for something completely different”. 

If 2020 was many unprecedented things, it was also the year of remote video conferencing — the year of Zoom. Enter our intrepid Mark Lentz, media maestro and man of many kind deeds. Mark, along with two of the greatest and coolest Kubrick scholars, James Marinaccio and James Sherman, stepped up and orchestrated a very cool and brand new concept, “The Kubrick Hour” on Zoom, as a way to keep enthusiasts connected during the most difficult year any of us can remember. We present this unique concept and approach for us to our Year In Review episode this go-around. 

What you’re about to hear is the result of Mark and James’s efforts to orchestrate a virtual roundtable discussion of the year in Kubrick news, two thousand-twenty, with a moderated group of venerated enthusiasts. For this episode we were privileged to have discussion among John Harig, Mike MediaMan, Mark McKennon, Jorge Albararán Riquleme, Ian Roscow, Anne Strauss-Weider, Max Rendon, Maria, Jerry Furst, and our very own and very lovable producer, Stephen Rigg.

We hope you enjoy this new idea. We’re proud of it. Just remember, if you’re on a Zoom call with a Kubrick fan you’ve never met before and you feel put on the spot when they ask you what’s your favorite food then, simply reply “French fries and ketchup” and you’ll get along fine.

So it is with great pleasure that we present to you a round-table discussion from the 19th December 2020 with our wonderful Kubrickian friends.

Making Barry Lyndon with Gay Hamilton

SKAS_-_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_418sz08.jpg

Episode 41 : Making Barry Lyndon with Gay Hamilton

Hello there rubes, ruffians, and rapscallions, we’ve got another episode of Kubrick’s Universe for you, dedicated to an appreciation of Stanley’s hauntingly gorgeous oil painting of a film, Barry Lyndon. By which I mean we’ve had the pleasure of chatting with Nora Brady herself, the wonderful Scottish actress, Gay Hamilton. 

In this episode, you’ll hear Gay chat with us about how a young Scottish girl got the role through, in no small part, nailing a perfect Irish accent, meeting with Stanley Kubrick for the first time, then working with him on this seminal piece of art, as well as acting alongside Ryan O’Neal. 

You’ll also hear Gay regale us with stories of shooting the iconic dance scene with Leonard Rossiter, adapting to the fine art of acting in Oscar award-winning costume designer Milena Canonero’s dresses, and Gay’s love for the game of Frisbee. 

But you’ll also be delighted to hear Gay tell us about Stanley the practical joker, as well as reads from her own personal diary which she kept on set during the filming of Barry Lyndon, and ultimately, catching up with what it meant for her to be part of Kubrick’s legacy. 

So hang out with us for a bit as we leapfrog back through time from the present to the mid 1970s, to the 1700s… in Kubrick’s Universe. 

So it is with great pleasure that we present to you an interview from the 16th March 2020 with Gay Hamilton and Kubrick’s Universe host Mr. Jason Furlong.

Mythbusting & Model Making with Mike Scott

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep40bmuht.jpg

Episode 40 : Mythbusting & Model Making with Mike Scott

Mike Scott is a model maker, science fiction nut and a self-confessed NERD.  He was a child during the Apollo Space Programme in the 60’s and at 6 years old was blown away when he saw 2OO1 A Space Odyssey in the cinema with his dad. After eventually working out what was real and what was just a movie he continued his obsession.

Starting off kit-bashing, which is basically creating his own models from parts of existing model kits…. And moving on to detailed model and costume replicas in the 70’s, from Kiss’s Gene Simmons to Darth Vader. Winning costume contests as a teenager and eventually meeting and working with effects legend Greg Nicotero who gave him a very special commission to make an exact replica of a Clavius Moon Base spacesuit from 2OO1 A Space Odyssey.

The suit has been displayed in exhibits around the world, including the annual science fiction convention Escape Velocity at the Museum of Science Fiction in 2018 on the 2001 50th anniversary. His replica spacesuit was featured at the Envisioning 2001: Stanley Kubrick's Space Odyssey exhibition in 2019 at MOMI in New York, to much acclaim.

Mike spends an incredible amount of time researching to make sure his work is as close to, if not better, than the originals, and now you will hear him talk about how he went about creating one of the most iconic costumes in movies.

He tells us about his appearance on Adam Savage’s MYTHBUSTERS, working with ILM, Dungeons & Dragons, meeting real life astronauts as well as make-believe ones.

So it is with great pleasure that I present to you an interview from the 16th February 2020 with Mike Scott and Kubrick’s Universe host Mr. Jason Furlong.

Full Metal Jacket with Adrian Bush

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep39jpg_bg6hd.jpg

Episode 39 : Full Metal Jacket with Adrian Bush

Ok, so we have a fun show for you with a pretty unique guest and very cool guy. His name is Adrian Bush. In 1985, Ady was a 19 year-old British Army Reservist who learned that a call had been put out for military extras for an upcoming film production. The film turned out to be Kubrick’s inimitable 1987 Vietnam war examination, Full Metal Jacket. 

Ady spent some time to share his stories with us in 2018, and now, for the first time, you’re gonna hear him talk about his experiences on and off the set, including but not limited to: His six weeks preparation with U.S.-style military training, filming the battle sequences at Beckton Gasworks, dodging some scorching-hot shells from blanks that fell all around him during one particular scene, his own time spent photographing the set, working with R. Lee Ermey, the unexpected death of a colleague who was also working on the film, playing several different background parts, and witnessing the police called after reports of the massive amounts of burning black tires used caused a haze of pollution over nearby London.

You’ll also hear Ady talk about encountering strippers with American actor Ed “Touchdown” O’Ross at a local pub, how O’Ross ended up recording a song with Paul Hardcastle during the filming of Full Metal Jacket and how he finally became cool in the eyes of his teenage son.

2001 and Beyond with Keir Dullea [Keir Dullea part 2]

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep38_88oow.jpg

Episode 38 : 2001 and Beyond with Keir Dullea

In this episode you’ll hear Keir Dullea chatting with us about how he came to work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, meeting Stanley Kubrick for the first time, his experiences on the set, and how it all altered the trajectory of his career and changed his life. 

He also tells us other fascinating stories, from his love of theatre acting, being involved with the first Broadway revival of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof with Fred Gywnne (who will of course forever be remembered as Herman Munster) to his first major stage role, performing with the legendary Burl Ives, as well as post-Space Odyssey screen roles he remembers fondly, including Paperback Hero and The Fox (with the late great Sandy Dennis), playing Audrey Hepburn’s father onscreen opposite Jennifer Love-Hewitt, and even his love for the inimitable Canadian singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot.  

Keir also shares something very personal. It wouldn’t feel right calling it an “exclusive” since obtaining such a thing has honestly never been a goal of ours. Better to say it occurred naturally within our conversation, I suppose, when he felt comfortable telling us what he did. Regardless, it was an act of generosity from Keir for which we will remain forever grateful.

The Early Days… Stanley and Me : An Interview with Gerald Fried - Part 1

_SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_-_EP33_B.jpg

Episode 33 : The Early Days... Stanley and Me : An Interview with Gerald Fried - Part 1

This is the first part of our interview with Gerald Fried. We spoke to him in late 2018, when he was just 90 years young.

Gerald Fried, a native New Yorker, has scored almost 300 films and television shows in a career spanning 70 x years. His movie scores include such varied titles as Machine Gun Kelly for Roger Corman, Jack Nicholson’s first feature film The Cry Baby Killer, The Killing of Sister George, Too Late The Hero & The Grisson Gang all three for director Robert Aldrich.

His TV credits include some of the most popular shows being produced at the time including M Squad, Wagon Train, Gunsmoke, Gilligan’s Island, The Man From Uncle, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Lost In Space and Police Woman.

Gerald was nominated for an Oscar for Best Music with an Original Dramatic Score for the feature-length documentary Birds Do It, Bees Do it at the 1976 Academy Awards, up against several other notable composers with memorable scores. The Wind and the Lion from Jerry Goldsmith, Jack Nitzsche’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Bite The Bullet by Alex North, and the winner that year was……… John Williams for probably the most famous movie score of all time JAWS. So Gerald was in great company that night.

Gerald also won a TV Emmy for his work with Quincy Jones on the amazing mini-series Roots from 1977.

Having composed the scores for five of Stanley Kubrick's earliest films, he is one of the most frequent collaborators of Kubrick, and he was in fact the composer of the last Kubrick film that was entirely scored by a single composer.

Fried and Kubrick first worked together as a composer/director partnership, as 21 (23) year olds on the short film Day of the Fight, back in 1951, followed by four feature films, Fear & Desire, Killer’s Kiss, The Killing and Paths of Glory.

In this episode, being Part 1 of our interview with Gerald, we discuss the early years in New York when Gerald and Stanley were just coming up and starting to carve their careers out in the film business.

Barry Lyndon : A Very Special Reunion with Leon Vitali and David Morley

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_KU_Leon_and_David_Reunion_-_press_ad_a.jpg

Episode 32 : Welcome to 2020, and in this episode, we speak with actors Leon Vitali and David Morley.

We have something truly special in store for you with this episode. Forty-five years ago a couple of young and very gifted actors were recruited by Stanley Kubrick to play two very essential characters in his masterful 1975 film, Barry Lyndon. 

We're referring of course to Leon Vitali and David Morley, who played step-brothers, Lord Bullingdon and Bryan Lyndon.

You’re going to hear a surprise call to Leon and David, which we managed to keep a secret prior to the day it took place in early January 2020. 

Neither of them have seen or spoken with each other since the filming of Barry Lyndon was completed in 1975, and life for the two young men took them onto their own new paths of adventure. With that all said, we at Kubrick’s Universe invite you, our friends, to please enjoy this: the reunion of Leon Vitali and David Morley.

Episode 30 : The director of a new short film called, NEVER JUST A DREAM: STANLEY KUBRICK AND EYES WIDE SHUT, talks to Kubrick's Universe about the creation of his film.

The short documentary Never Just A Dream: Stanley Kubrick and Eyes Wide Shut is produced by Park Circus for Warner Bros. Pictures International and is presented as part of a special 20th Anniversary screening of Eyes Wide Shut (1999).

We spoke for a second time to the documentary’s director and producer, Matt Wells, this time about Eyes Wide Shut (1999) and his new short film.

Matt Wells is a British filmmaker based in London. This is his third short documentary on the work of Stanley Kubrick, after Work & Play: A Short Film About ‘The Shining’ (2017) and Stanley Kubrick Considers the Bomb (2019), about Dr Strangelove (1964), which both screened in cinemas internationally as part of rereleases of those films.

We spoke with Matt in October 2019.

Eyes Wide Cut with Marshall Allman

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep28a.jpg

Episode 28 : Question: What do Blade Runner, The Magnificent Ambersons, Cinema Paradiso and Brazil have in common.

Answer: They have all been re-edited after their initial theatrical releases.

Originally released in the US on the 16th July 1999, Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick’s final film was generally received by audiences and critics alike as somewhat disappointing. There seems to be some debate over wether the final cut of Eyes Wide Shut, that Kubrick submitted to Warner Brothers just days before his death would have been his actual final cut. The film was still 4 months away from release.

In 1968, Kubrick had removed almost 20 mins of film from 2001: A Space Odyssey after it’s premiere screenings saying, “It does take a few runnings to decide finally how long things should be, especially scenes which do not have narrative advancement as their guideline.” Then in 1980, he removed the original final scene of The Shining, again after the films initial US release and then a further 24 minutes for the European cut. So, it’s not hard to imagine that Kubrick could have in fact implemented changes to Eyes Wide Shut, during the 4 month period between his untimely passing and the release of the film, had he lived.

No, one will ever really know, but a young actor and Filmmaker from Texas has actually made some cuts to Eyes Wide Shut saying “I am not trying to do what Kubrick would’ve done but seeing what changes were even possible without losing the essence of the film”. His un-authorised edit, which is available to watch at EYESWIDECUT.COM, runs at 120 Minutes, having trimmed 40 Minutes from the officially released version.

As he explains on his website :

So, in the spirit of "never say no to an idea", I decided to make the edit to Eyes Wide Shut not only as a homage to my favourite filmmaker but also as a personal challenge to myself as an editor and storyteller.”

The man behind this rather controversial undertaking is actor and filmmaker Marshall Allman.

We spoke with Marshall in July 2018.

Burning Secret with Leon Vitali, Gerald Fried and Nathan Abrams

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep17.jpg

Episode 17 : Burning Secret with Leon Vitali, Gerald Fried and Nathan Abrams.

In this episode, we talk about a recently discovered screenplay on July 15th this year that made the headlines. 

This wasn't just any screenplay. It was a script penned by Stanley Kubrick and Paths of Glory co-writer Calder Willingham, over 62 years ago and it had only been discovered when one of Stanley's earliest collaborators, the composer Gerald Fried, brought it to the attention of Kubrick fans the world over.

The script is called Burning Secret and it's an adaptation of a 1913 novella by Austrian writer Stefan Zweig, and it tells the story of a young boy who is seduced by a man in order to get to the boys' mother.

Thus far there have been three filmed versions of the original novella, the most recent being in 1988. The production was written and directed by Andrew Birkin, and it stars Klaus Maria Brandauer, David Eberts, and the legendary Faye Dunaway.

But this particular treatment of the screenplay, by Kubrick and Willingham, was discovered by our friend, Nathan Abrams, a professor in Film Studies at Bangor University, while he was just doing research for his new book about Stanley Kubrick.

Earlier in 2018, we had the pleasure of speaking with Stanley Kubrick’s long-time right-hand-man and good friend, Leon Vitali, incidentally, just a few days after this amazing news broke, so obviously we had to ask him for his take on what he knows about the screenplay.

Full Metal Jacket Diary with Adam Rackoff

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep7.jpg

Episode 7 : Full Metal Jacket Diary with Adam Rackoff. In this episode of Kubrick's Universe, producer Adam Rackoff talks about his Full Metal Jacket Diary App and Full Metal Jacket Diary Audiobook, and about his work with actor Matthew Modine.

Adam Rackoff is a New York-based filmaker with numerous credits, including 27 as producer on feature films, shorts, documentaries, and even a video game. But he is best known among Kubrick fans for his collaborations with Matthew Modine on the Full Metal Jacket Diary iPad App, and later the Full Metal Jacket Diary Audiobook.

Adam met Matthew when he came into the Apple Store that Adam was working at, as part of the "Made on a Mac" series. This eventually led to the Full Metal Jacket Diary App.

Wikipedia defines a "killer app" as "any computer program that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology, such as computer hardware, a gaming console, a software platform, or an operating system. An example would be Lotus 123 for the PC in the 1980's.   Kubrick fans would argue that Adam and Matthew's Full Metal Jacket Diary app is just such a one for the iPad -- as a brand new, incredibly immersive way to experience a book.

The app includes numerous "special features", including web links relating to the project.  In one of them, from 2010, Matthew writes: "Last spring I was gifted an iPad.  It's an interesting device.  I downloaded a couple of iBooks and different apps.   It's pretty cool.  I also owned a Kindle, but wasn't enthusiastic about the prospect of reading on it.  My friend and I were talking about the experience of reading on electronic devices and imagined that if a developer could make the experience more cinematic and interactive, then digital books could take the reader on a unique journey.  I realized then, that my friend and I could do just that and the iPad could be the perfect platform to re-release my book.  My friend became my design partner and producer on the Full Metal Jacket Diary app."

Adam is obviously the "friend" here.

Stanley Kubrick & Me with Filippo Ulivieri

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep4.jpg

Episode 4 : Stanley Kubrick & Me with Filippo Ulivieri. Author Filippo Ulivieri talks to Kubrick's Universe about Archivio Kubrick and his fantastic book Stanley Kubrick and MeStanley Kubrick, has always been depicted by the media as the Howard Hughes of filmmakers, a weird artist obsessed with his work and privacy to the point of madness. But who was he really? Emilio D'Alessandro lets us see. A former Formula Ford driver who was a minicab chauffeur in London during the Swinging Sixties, he took a job driving a giant phallus through the city that became his introduction to the director. Honest, reliable, and ready to take on any task, Emilio found his way into Kubrick's neurotic, obsessive heart. He became his personal assistant, his right-hand man and confidant, working for him from A Clockwork Orange until Kubrick's death in 1999.

"This was an awesome interview and as I have felt with the others, it really makes a difference to have podcast BY Kubrick fans, FOR Kubrick fans. It just put me in a "good space" of Kubrick immersion throughout." Mark Lentz, Stanley Kubrick Meet-Ups New York - 25 March 2018.
