The Projection Booth’s Special Report: SECONDS

Both Jez and I have been involved in Mike White’s The Projection Booth podcast in the past (and I have an appearance slated for next year – to be announced!) so we were thrilled when he approached us to record a Special Report on our book, SECONDS.

Mike gave us the opportunity to talk through the inception of our project, the process of co-writing and the appeal of writing about a generally maligned film in an interview that inches towards an hour in duration. It’s a deep-dive interview into our deep-dive book.

We hope you like it…

On the LUP blog: SECONDS

My outstanding co-author, Jez Conolly, has written a piece for the Liverpool University Press blog to explain our motivation for writing about the film SECONDS.

We’d both love it if you’d read the blog article but even more if you’d buy the book we’ve written and breathe further life into a remarkable film that never got the attention it deserves.

Buy the book on SECONDS

Want to know more about John Frankenheimer’s criminally overlooked monolith of paranoia, SECONDS (1966)?

SECONDS by Jez Conolly and Emma Westwood, part of the Constellations series of sci-fi cinema books, is available from your favourite book pusher but you can also buy direct from the publisher, Liverpool University Press.

It may be the best film you’ve never seen. So watch now then digest this tasty monograph.

Pre-order SECONDS book

This book has been brewing for a while now, so I couldn’t think of a better way to end 2020 than to announce SECONDS is now available for pre-order (with a proposed release date of 21st April 2021).

It’s been such an amazing experience co-authoring with Jez Conolly and following his creative lead with this project. Hopefully, we can introduce SECONDS to a new audience and give the film at least some of the acclaim it deserves.

Viva Rock Hudson!
