At various points in my life I've been described as a "deadbeat," "dead inside," "English," and somewhat disappointingly, "a nice guy." I'll leave it up to you to decide for yourselves.
I come from a country where the national religion is football (the round-ball kind) and the national sport is drinking. I'm a little bit afraid of American churches. They're generally not very old, and they're full of worshippers, not tourists.
I've been resident in Davis for a couple of years, but I didn't chose to be here. I chose to be with a girl who chose UC Davis for her PhD. So it goes. Now I'm here I'm quite fond of Northern California. I like the fact that almost everyone is originally from somewhere else; it's easier to fit in.
Anyone who spends more than a couple of minutes talking to me will very quickly discover that I'm into movies. When it's my turn to do postgraduate study I'm taking my girl back to the UK where I will (hopefully) attend film school. I'm really quite singleminded about this. I discovered that one of my favourite film-makers, Krystof Kieslowski (the director of the Three Colours trilogy) was rejected twice from film school in Poland before he got in, which I'm sure will be reassuring at some point in the future.
In the meantime I'm trying to keep my days as filmic as possible. I shoot and edit occasional projects for clients, and use the proceeds to add to my personal collection of film equipment. Get in touch if you'd like me to shoot something, unless it's a wedding. I don't do weddings, not even for special friends. Some people on this wiki may have seen the documentary I produced for the opening night of the Varsity Theatre. I'm quite cheap, although I'm starting to think I might be worth a little bit more.
I just started working as a media trainer at Davis Media Access (formerly Davis Community Television), so if you're keen to learn how to shoot with a Canon XL2 or GL2, or want to learn how to use Final Cut, sign yourself up for a class and find out for yourself if I'm really dead inside.
Hey, do you know if the ice cream/cafe by Varsity will be a new Mishkas? —PhilipNeustrom
Philip, the ice cream cafe will be called Icekrimski Cafe. It will not be a new Mishka's. Sinisa Novakovic is currently in negotiations with the City council regarding putting a brand new building on the land between the Varsity and the Hunt Boyer Mansion. If he is successful this is where Mishka's will move to. —Liam Creighton

2007-02-23 17:50:04 Hey Liam, We have a lot of job openings at CAFF right now. I'm honestly not spamming you— someone mentioned to me that you might be looking for work at some point, but I don't have your email. Listings at http://www.caff.org/jobs/ProgramAssistant.shtml. Also, have you seen this movie about a co-op in Syracuse? (http://www.syracuserealfood.coop) How could we get something like this for our own Co-op? Do you ever assign your film students short projects? —JoRo
2007-02-24 19:25:44 It's usually a good idea... You know internet security wise. Can you bring a varsity DVD documentary so I can purchase it? —StevenDaubert
2007-03-01 19:30:30 Steven, I think I've got a couple knocking around. —LiamCreighton
2007-03-01 19:36:07 JoRo, thanks for the info about CAFF. I'll check out the Syracuse Co-op stuff and let you know how do-able similar things would be. How do I get in touch with you? —LiamCreighton
2008-06-16 17:59:47 Hope to enjoy your movie tonight! :0) —ChristopherMckenzie
