Master roger what is the name of your first horror movie. You said it's low budget horror movie. I can't find out in IMDb.

I think it was “mountains of the moon” but could be wrong.

Research reveals that “Another time, Another place” 1983, may have been his first British feature but I think he may have done one before then. If it’s very low budget then I doubt if you can get a copy although Roger should have a copy in his archives.

"Another time , another place is horror movie? I would like to see his first feature film.

Not a horror movie, more of a drama movie. I suspect he does not want to remember his very first feature film. “White mischief” shot in Kenya was one of his early features and is rather good. It’s been on British television 6 times in the last two weeks here. His “Sex Pistols” documentary was rather fun to watch if you can get a copy.
Nation film school, Beaconsfield, made some interesting short films in the 1970’s it is possible he was involved in the making of those. They may have copies on file.

Penultimate sentence should read, National film and Television school. Computer predictive spelling.

I am interested too Vanniyan. I'm sure he'll reply with the proper answer.

Vanniyan is not really interested in Rogers first film but he is interested in how the films were photographed from the early films to the present day ones. Techniques of shooting and editing have changed so much from 1983 - 2019 due mainly to the introduction of digital cameras and lighting even though equipment has become cheaper, budgets have increased dramatically probably due to labour costs and CG effects. Vanniyan is trying to ‘gauge’ how Rogers films have changed during that period. Trading, exchanging, debating ideas and opinions is what this forum is known for, surely, that must be a good thing.
