Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Introducing Sidepodfilmclub - A new concept in communal movie consumption

Published by Christine

If you have been following my personal blog, you'll know I've been live commenting my way through films in a series I like to call Film Watch. The idea is simply to watch the film, make notes as you go and publish them later. It is a lot of fun to do, but in traditional Sidepodfashion, we want to take this to the next level.

Last week, Alex was off sick from work and in an effort to cheer him up, he and I watched an episode of Friends in sync, and live commented our way through it. Watching a programme apart but together. This was also really fun, and sparked an idea in my head. Why not combine the film and Friends experiments and live comment an entire movie?

There is no live show this weekend. Instead we are going to live comment our way through Talladega Nights. Yes, I know, it's a film about NASCAR, but we wanted to make it motorsport related, and I've only heard good things about it. If you would like to join in, there are just a few things you need to know.

You'll need your own copy of the film. We'll be renting ours from the iTunes store.

The film will begin at 8pm Saturday 5th September. The exact mechanics of how we'll all start at the same time are yet to be decided, but it will probably involve us shouting: GO! And everyone pressing play. High tech!
