About the Book
By the end of 2018, Freelance Giggle-oh had played to the general public in Manchester and Milan and was distributed on-demand worldwide by Italian art label Carboluce.
Thingyfesto is the product of Hutchings' seven years of filmmaking-trial-and-error experience. Part filmmaking manifesto and part comedy tie-in book, this pocket edition of Thingyfesto is comprised of the 10 tongue-in-cheek filmmaking principals he has discovered as he made his first two Thingys.
Thingyfesto is a book for anyone interested in the creative impulse of filmmaking. Whether you are starting out or already established, Hugh Moir has managed to capture many practical and helpful tips and tricks from Hutchings' methods with a focus on the importance of considering why we should press record in the first place.
"A Walter Mitty for the digital age in a comedy kaleidoscope of imagination."
Damien McFerran, Co-Director, N-Life Network.
"A totally self-produced, visionary work by the ironical and multi-talented Daniel Hutchings. Freelance Giggle-oh is a richly structured comical mix of eccentric characters that winks at Monty Python."
Roberto Rup Paolini, Director, Carboluce.
