From PR Marek Steven:

Ditto is a new multi-platform collaboration between top names in music, film and writing. Individual, exclusive pieces inspired by classic works from various fields will come together live in an inspiring celebration of life - Creation, Joy, Love, Despair, Hope, Destruction and Farewell. The performance is broadcast live online for literally one time only; as all the work created will be erased forever at the finale. With events coming up at Latitude and The Big Chill, Ditto is always looking for new collaborators. With international musicians and producers influenced by dance, electronica and sonic landscapes composing, contributing and performing new works:

Sander Kleienberg, Rolando Rocha, Fluke / 2BIT, John Hendicott, Bruno DiasMieko Shimizu and James Gillespie (aka Scope). Including a piece created by Richard Norris (Beyond The Wizards Sleeve). Alongside these music pieces, newly created film and animation is being contributed by leading film and visual artists among whom are a mulitude of successful and talented visual artists.

The project brings together 23 newly commissioned pieces of visual art, with accompanying composed soundtracks delivered in a mixture of live and pre-recorded performance and a global broadcast. At the end of the event all the performance material is permanently erased and will never be replayed. This is a one-time event.

British director Garrick Hamm’s new short film The Man Who Married Himself has been selected for two prestigious US film festivals this summer.

The first of these is the LA Shorts Fest which has just started this July. This particular Festival has an uncanny knack of selecting short films that go on to win the Oscar for Best Short Film. The second Festival is the 2010 Rhode Island International Film Festival which is also a qualifying event for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

The Man Who Married Himself has a wealth of talent both in front of and behind the camera. It stars Richard E Grant as the title character, alongside  British acting talents Warren Clark, Emilia Fox and Celia Imrie. Behind the camera are director Garrick Hamm and award winning cinematographer Michael Seresin (Harry Potter, Angela’s Ashes, Angel Heart).
