Interview with Travis Knight

Travis Knight is a man of many talents, although up to this point directing hasn’t been one publically known.

Son on Phil Knight (the founder and chairman of Nike, the shoe company), naturally Travis sits on the board of directors. However – his own project – Laika Studios has been a success in its own right as well.

Laika’s award-winning films including 2009’s Coraline, 2012’s ParaNorman and 2014’s The Boxtrolls - but now, Knight is in the hot seat for the studio’s latest release: Kubo and the Two Strings.


Starring the voices of Charlize Theron, Art Parkinson, Ralph Fiennes, George Takei, Rooney Mara, Matthew McConaughey, among others, the film is about a young boy named Kubo who must locate a magical suit of armour worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.


James Gilmore interviewed Travis Knight about his career and new film Kubo and the Two Strings.

Interview with Dave Johns and Ken Loach

Interview with Dave Johns and Ken Loach

Daniel Blake, 59, has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, after a heart attack and nearly falling from a scaffold, he needs help from the State for the first time in his life.

I, Daniel Blake is the riveting new film from director Ken Loach which has sent shockwaves through the UK about the way the state helps for those in needs.

In the film, Dave Johns plays Daniel Blake.


He crosses paths with a single mother Katie (played by Hayley Squires) and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know some 300 miles away.

Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.
