A "sweded" movie is a low-budget recreation of a popular film often made by fans and using limited material and resources. So Fabien Chombart, a David Lynch fan from Île-de-France took his camcorder and shot his own version of the feature film, Fire Walk With Me.
Welcome to Welcome to Twin Peaks dot com!
What better day to launch this site than David Lynch's 65th birthday? Happy birthday, Mr. Lynch! May life bring you many more years, works of art and chocolate bunnies!
The original idea behind Welcome to Twin Peaks was to showcase the many photos I've shot at the actual filming locations in Washington state. But since even after 20 years my Twin Peaks obsession is still uncontrollable, and I have a wealth of Twin Peaks related discoveries to share, this site will become much more than a slideshow. If anything, it will show you that Twin Peaks is still very much out there.
A few months ago, the controversial Vice magazine did a fashion shoot inspired by Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Meet Laura Palmer (Amelia Gilliam) and Donna Hayward (Brittany Nola) as seen through the lens of Jonathan Leder and styled by Annette Lamothe-Ramos.
Except for the guns and a Donna that's too much of an Audrey, I think they set the mood quite right. Hell, there's even a picnic scene!
Twin Peaks-obsessed electro-pop producer Bright Light Bright Light (Rod Thomas) has made a cover of Julee Cruise's "Falling". A fan living near the filming locations in the Snoqualmie area heard the cover, went out to shoot some moody footage of the Great Northern hotel and its falls, Ronnette's bridge, Mt. Si, the motel from Fire Walk With Me, the Twin Peaks High School, the Double R, among other places... and sent everything to the up-and-coming UK producer.
