Made from hundreds of hours of unseen and behind the scenes footage from his personal archive, Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye. Michael directed the series and both pilots and, over a two-year period, witnessed the highs and lows from a very personal perspective. Oxide Ghosts carries the blessing of Chris Morris and provides a unique glimpse of his extraordinary working practices. This cult film will only ever be screened at live events.
The shows are a must for fans of the series but will appeal to anyone with a curiosity about how great comedy is made. Special guest hosts at selected venues. Watch the trailer. Read an article from The Quietus here, an article from We Are Cult here, the Times here, a review from the Guardian here and listen to Michael on BBC R4’s Front Row, the Love Of Cinema podcast, the Park Date Podcast and Glastonbury’s YouTube site.
‘Oxide Ghosts offers a well-judged and very rare insight into Brass Eye’s making. If you're an admirer of the show and the opportunity should arise for you to see it, have some self re-cocking-spect and do so without hesitation' - Chortle
‘In honour of the Brass Eye birthday there have been tributes published and repeats scheduled, but the surprise popularity of an almost unpublicised touring event, called Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes, perhaps says even more about the enduring influence of the show. Oxide Ghosts has been quietly selling out in independent cinemas across the land’ - The Guardian
