Yesterday I was backing up files on my trusty Mac and I came across a short film that I'd made in 2011, during the public holiday that was William & Kate's Royal wedding. It was to be the follow up to Shaky Kane Unravelled, but somehow I didn't like the way I'd edited it. I was going to fix it and then all of a sudden 4 years had slipped by. Anyhow, I started watching it last night and it made me laugh, so I thought maybe I should just forget about the flaws and put it up online anyhow. So, here it is. A short film about the great Shaky Kane in his own habitat in Exeter, Devon, UK. Enjoy.
