back to article Brit censors endure 10-hour Paint Drying movie epic

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has determined that Charlie Lyne's 10-hour Paint Drying contains "no material likely to offend or harm", and has accordingly awarded it a "suitable for all" U certificate. Nicely described by the BBFC as "a film showing paint drying on a wall", Paint Drying is the result of a …

              Our college put on the stage version of this twice in 1985.

              The first time was about three weeks before our production of Cabaret and they put it on again about three weeks afterwards.

              For Cabaret, the freshly undercoated back wall of the stage was painted with a 40 foot high mural of can-can girls legs in fishnets with various lewd and leering audience members featured. That show was a killer as I had to move the fully loaded lighting bars back ten feet to light the back wall instead of the curtain! Queue some very strong ropes to make a sling for them to slide along. Also had to dig out and bring the old 1960s era foot-lights up to code. That was a learning experience. And I had to renovate one of the five Junior 8 banks that had burned out some years earlier. Needed full lighting for that production. This was in the days before you had to be certified to do that kind of shit.

      You don't think that they considered that the main risk? It's not like Charlie Lyne kept his plans secret, and the risk was always that if the fast-forwarded through it they'd miss something hugely embarrassing.

      Although equally, if they had a digital copy, they should have been able to get a frame on frame analysis to pick up any differences, check those out, then fast forward through at 50x, and the laugh would be on Lyne and his clown-funding chums.

      Simple to detect with a frame differencer. Still no need to view the whole film.

      1. JetSetJim Silver badge

        Re: Too easy

        I doubt the BBFC have a frame differencer to hand, so it's probably simpler, and cheaper, just to watch the whole shebang than to find one, work out how to use it, plonk this film through it, and write up the results.

        1. IR

          Re: Too easy

          The film should really have been a series of one-second-long stills and video clips, mostly of things that are innocent but also vaguely rude things like funny shaped vegetables/rocks/trees. Repeat the same ones a lot. The viewer would have to be paying close attention for the whole time because it changes so much. Add a soundtrack of a repeated song that changes volume every now and then, with some hard-to-decipher whispering in the background. Constantly intense is far worse than boring.

    Precedent...

    There's a story that Andrei Tarkovsky's 1971 film "Solaris" contains a seemingly interminable scene of a trip through city traffic in purely to bore the Soviet censor into turning it off and signing the approval.

    (The scene in question was filmed on Tokyo's urban motorways, and the more plausible reason for it is that including so much of this Japanese footage in the final film was to justify the great expense incurred by Tarkovsky and company to travel to Japan to shoot it. Thanks to Soviet efficiency, they had missed the World Fair, which was to have provided the original "future cityscape" imagery for this part of the film.)

          The first part of the trilogy being The Riddle of the Sanding

            There's a post-sequel trilogy as well. The final part is a futuristic sci-fi where the white paint finally dies a death by being at the business end of a Tyrolean Flicker Gun.

            Or has it???!!!

    Yes, clearly the BBFC fees are prohibitively expensive.

    Or rather, bored people have money to burn.

      @Lamont Cranston - Re: Yes, clearly the BBFC fees are prohibitively expensive.

      Way to totally miss the point.

      There are people out there who want to produce films for niche markets, often in the adult fetish genres, but the cost of getting BBFC classification is so expensive and the market sufficiently small that it would be impossible to make a profit on these films.

      Consequently you get the ridiculous situation of these films being available everywhere, *except* in the UK because of the "protection racket" that says "either you get BBFC classification or we prosecute you for selling uncertificated material".

      But don't worry, they're thinking of the children by protecting them from buying this filth...

        Re: @Lamont Cranston - Yes, clearly the BBFC fees are prohibitively expensive.

        Is that what this is about? 'Cos it looks more like an effort to piss money up the wall.

        Seriously, though, if this is about films being refused classification on the grounds that they're "obscene", then that's a legitimate grievance, although it's the government that determines what is obscene, not the BBFC.

    No material likely to offend or harm

    If the picture is a clip from the film then it's the lack of material that is likely to offend. There isn't any cultural diversity only a white wall. The wall looks decidely sad so no gay wall, Ian Mckellen will have to wait anohter year for an openly gay wall to be awarded an oscar. And don't get started on the lack of opportunity for dwarf walls.

    All Amateurs!! Its obviously a 10 hour ad!

    Hello! Its so obvious its a product placement by a paint manufacturer! They are brainwashing you to buy their paint the next time you paint your wall.

    I am sure if you pause it at the right frame, you will see the logo of the culprit!

    Is the sounds track an extended version of John Cage's 4'33"?

      I was wondering if they'd use Pink Floyd, but that might have made it too exciting.

    Now lets look at other countries...

    We need to get the kickstarter going again to raise money to get it classified in other countries.

    http://www.classification.gov.au/Industry/Journey/Documents/Resources/ClassificationFeeStructure2011-13.pdf

    The category of the film "Film - Public Exhibition" or "Film - Other" determines the cost. The film maker is going to have to try harder to reach the "Time limit" in Australia. They have a sliding scale for up to 2000 minutes if it is "Film - Other".

    Beer because I think I would need quite a few to get through this.

    Is this all live action footage. I mean, I can appreciate the realism of in-camera effects, but I am worried that this will just be another CGI-fest.

    Photo mosaic

    Seems to me the maker has a "dry" sense of humour.

    Anyone that follows through on a method to needle bureaucracy will always get my up vote.

    The upcoming sequel I believe will be called "The Second Coat" while the 3rd and 4th releases are as yet unnamed.

    ...Spoiler alert...

    The last of the series will be called "The Final Coat"

    Our protagonist will be constructing each frame as composite of photo mosaic images.

    After watching this British Censors are expected to receive a BAFTA/Oscar for best censorship in a useless catagory.

    Side stage medics will be on hand to ensure their continued lack of a pulse...

      Hey, I see no reason why not. Peter Jackson got 3 films out of The Hobbit, has to be at least a quadrilogy out of this one :)
