A Conversation with Director and Editor John Glen in Brighton

By: Anders Frejdh
John Glen Brighton film school event
The Space (Southern Performance and Creative Energies), a unique regular Brighton based entertainment and arts event with exclusive special guest interviews, welcomes legendary James Bond films director and editor John Glen and acclaimed singer/songwriter Badly Drawn Boy on Thursday 4th June at 8pm.

The event, sponsored by Brighton Film School, is hosted by Lisa Holloway and the doors open at 7.15pm.

About John Glen:
Best known for his directing and editing work on eight James Bond films, from the 1960s to the 1980s. He has directed more Bond films than anyone else, which are For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983) (1983), A View to a Kill (1985), The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence to Kill (1989). During the 60s and the 70s, he worked as a second unit director on films such as The Italian Job (1969), Superman: The Movie (1978) and The Wild Geese (1978). John also was the editor and 2nd unit director for three other Bond films - On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979) (1979). This legendary James Bond figure is certainly an established member of the so-called family associated with the hugely successful film franchise.

Editor's note:
John is currently working on an updated and revised version of his autobiography (For My Eyes Only) for publication in the fall to coincide with the release of the 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE.
