After getting a retweet from American comedian Rob Delaney regarding his own fart joke (something Rob Delaney may well not remember) Babak Ganjei woke up to find a number of film producers from Los Angeles following him. Sensing an opportunity somewhere, anywhere, over the next five years Babak used Twitter to pitch film ideas, sadly to no avail. While ill and housebound Babak started to write them down in analogue form and discovered an audience waiting for his films. In Film Ideas, artist Babak Ganjei presents his hallucinatory set of film pitches as both a comic lampoon of Hollywood tropes and a classic example of outsider-self-expression. Extremely funny and shot through with Ganjei’s singular world-view. Film Ideas brilliantly exposes our thin, absurd media culture.

Babak Ganjei is a musician (Absentee, Wet Paint), artist and a writer of comics (Hilarious Consequences, Early Learnings). He also has a radio show with his son on NTS. After a four year struggle, he finally sold a set of twigs from his neighbourhood on eBay for £82 and managed to get a pep talk about his role as an artist from Thames Water and British Gas.
