What Was Julius Caesar's Last Meal? Probably Something Like This
Last Suppers is a small project created by Little Fish director Gus Filgate. The project is made of a series of films - each one imagining the final meal eaten by a famous person - and is part of Gus' blog which can be found here.
"I like to film and photograph food in unusual ways, so this is a perfect project for playing around with different styles." he says.
Commenting on his film for Caesar, Gus said: "Julius Caesar was knifed 23 times by members of his senate. It was a carefully planned mutiny and execution, orchestrated to prevent history from appointing any single senator as a scapegoat or martyr to his murder.
"But the act itself must have been brutal and emotionally charged… a vicious and dramatic action committed by otherwise mild-mannered thinking men. In a blindly link-less homage to that thought I decided to make Caesars Last Supper film with many of my own slashing edits and cuts; for a fast paced, high octane and (if possible in film about a plate of dinner), emotional journey."
