Hooked to the silver screens...

Film director Barney Clay premiered his latest work, Life On Mars Revisited, at a presentation by The Creators Projectat la Gaîté lyrique in Paris.yesterday.

Barney has been working closely with the director of the film, photographer Mick Rock, and post-production house, The Mill NY.

The work utilises previously unseen footage from the original Life On Mars? shoot to create a modern reworking of the video.

Life On Mars Revisited is presented across four screens simultaneously and though it starts and ends with the classic footage we all know and love, it goes on a rather different journey for the rest of the film.

I spoke to Mick yesterday and first reports back from Paris suggest that the film received the best reception of the installations during The Creators Project event in the French capital.

However, it's unlikely that many of us will get to see the work anytime soon as David Bowie has apparently requested that the piece only be shown in galleries and museums.

The Creators Project were honoured to premiere the final film and sound installation during the Paris event (which runs from June 9-11), with showings each day.

There are plans to show the work outside of Europe and we'll give you details of further screenings as we get them.

Meanwhile, check out this page over at The Creators Project to find out more about the working process behind Life On Mars Revisited and watch a video interview with the impossibly cool Barney Clay while you're there.
