Humble reader, today I step from behind the curtain to reveal that the film reviewer indeed has a heart. The subject of this rarefied personal post is an appeal for support of a great friend and Twin Peaks fan. Cameron Cloutier’s Obnoxious and Anonymous YouTube channel and website has been a safe haven for ardent Peakers and has kept the flame of fandom alive since 2012.

For a number of years, Cameron has harboured a desire to do a Twin Peaks fan film about Heather Graham’s ill-fated character Annie Blackburn. With the return of the series earlier this summer and Mark Frost’s literary bow on the series (Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier), there has been much fear of canonical clashing. However, much like its nineties incarnation, the contemporary crop of Twin Peaks material has allowed its fans to wonder, dream and speculate.

With the democratisation of film, it has become even easier for the average person to tell their stories. However, the internet has become a swarm of hyperbolic click-bait fare vying for your attention. This post for Cameron’s upcoming fan film is not one of those articles or videos. Instead, it’s a call to arms for truly independent film-making and storytelling.

For more information, please read Cameron’s introductory post about the upcoming film below. And for updates, you can like the Obnoxious and Anonymous Facebook page.

About Sartaj Govind Singh

Notes from a distant observer: “Sartaj is a very eccentric fellow with a penchant for hats. He likes watching films and writes about them in great analytical detail. He has an MA degree in Philosophy and has been known to wear Mickey Mouse ears on his birthday.”
