00:00 / 12:51

Simon Weitzman - Director

Simon Weitzman  was born a stone's throw away from where Paul McCartney lived in St John's Wood, London on same the day he first had the idea for Magical Mystery Tour in 1967. He is 5 foot 9 in. tall, has brown eyes and what’s left of his brown hair, he attended Orange Hill Comprehensive School, London and Bournemouth & Poole College Of Art & Design. 

 

He likes the colour black, chow mein, chocolate and profiteroles and follows the work of The Beatles, Elvis, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie, Queen, Simon & Garfunkel, Weezer and Nirvana. A long list of favourite film stars includes the names of Humphrey Bogart, Greta Scaachi, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Peter Sellers and Chloe Grace Moretz.  He reads the works of Spike Milligan and Winston Groom. He likes to wear black T-shirts, blue jeans, heavy black boots and baseball caps. 

 

Simon plays a bass guitar in much the same way that an experimental jazz musician gathers a group of instruments together before throwing themselves down the stairs. He spends his spare time writing, painting, creating sculptures, listening to the radio, mucking about and pointing at things. His ambitions include finishing this film, hopefully doing another one or six for fans and giving the planet back to its rightful owners, animals. His next project will be a film about the Beatles for cats.

Andy Lee - Editor

Andy Lee  was born a stone's throw away from where Paul McCartney was living with the Ashers in Marylebone, London in 1965. He is 5 foot 8 in. high, has blue eyes and some brown hair. He attended Aldenham School, a stone's throw from the Hari Krishna Temple bought by George Harrison, where he would sneak off and lose himself. Having been tortured and scared for long enough, he attended St Martin's School of Art in London, where he studied experimental filmmaking.

He likes the colour orange, Linda McCartney Pies and chips, admires the work of singers Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Julie London, David Byrne, Kate Bush and Ese Okorodudu. He also rather likes The Beatles. His list of favourite film stars includes the names of Peter Sellers, Mel Brooks, Sissy Spacek, Bette Davis and Jacques Tati. He likes clothes which are the nearest when he opens the wardrobe.

He plays the guitar and enjoys listening to records on a wind up gramophone, watching TikTok and singing. He used to read books. He likes music, television, curries and debunking stories on the internet and dislikes getting out of bed. For ambitions when he grows up he quotes John Lennon's famous line he never wrote in response to a school assignment; "I just want to be happy."
