'The filmmaker looks at his works and shows them to some friends or perhaps even a large audience, and begins to see that they hold up, that they have a form of integrity. And this happens much to the artist's surprise.' Stan Brakhage

The new pieces are beginning to be shown - During May, Flicker is in competition at Il Coreografo Elettronico and programmed at the Final Cut Screenings at the Brighton festival. Flicker is also beig shown as part of the Final Cut/Birds Eye View programme in Brighton. Magical Thinking is included in the compilation DVD Final Cut Take Two.

April/May

'The natural landscape is the raw material of the human psyche.' Bill Viola

Selection of stills from April/May

To view the piece click here.

Early April




Filmed on a very cold afternoon in Coleridge Recreation Ground on April 6th. I like that the volume of traffic can be heard as a part of the piece.


Mid April



Filmed in Mill Road Cemetary on Good Friday, and featuring one of the trees which was previously filmed in Mid-October.


May Day




Filmed on the St. Matthews Estate on May 1st. I'd seen the tree in blossom last spring, and wasn't organised enought to film it, so had to wait a year for the chance to catch it again.
