Life, featuring Rob Auton, for Random Acts, is one of 5
films produced by The Mob Film Company and Bang Said The Gun. In the
style of a silent film, Rob Auton wonders what life would be like for a

Cass Art Shop is a popular venue for Solihull College students
whenever visiting any of the London exhibitions to stock up on art supplies. It's a real
Aladdin's cave of all things arty and the Charing Cross Road branch is only just around the corner from
the National Portrait Gallery. Students can get 15% discount and they also have very good discounted items
in store too. I remember buying a huge box of Liquitex acrylics here worth £50 discounted to £19.99. Well worth a detour.
Their manifesto is:
Art is freedom. Cass Art believes in art. We know the freedom and
creative pleasure it brings. So we want everyone to realise they can do
it - and afford it.
Our staff are artists. They know art. They enjoy working with what they
know. They give you intelligent and thoughtful advice - no bluffing, no
We negotiate directly with all the famous suppliers. They help us, so we
can help you. That's why our prices are as low as they can go.
