What Was Julius Caesar's Last Meal? Probably Something Like This

Director Gus Filgate's blog imagines the last meals of several famous people

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."

If you'd like to keep up with Gus' tantalising videos, be sure to keep an eye on his blog.
