Experimental Film

I have always enjoyed engaging in making experimental short films. Much of my work combines nature, music and poetry.  I enjoy the performance aspects of this medium and the cross referencing  between art, popular culture and poetry.

Avant – guard Surrealist films have inspired me to create experimental pieces that focus on juxtaposing images from nature, ordinary every day objects and events.

I have always been very inspired by the Surrealist  era in terms of  music and film.

Much of my work takes one idea and focuses on this from new angles, such as my film ‘The Swan’ and my film,  ‘Seagulls’ where I emphasise the beauty and strangeness of these beautiful creatures. I was very inspired by the film maker Tarkovsky,  to look at ways of combining the spiritual elements with our surroundings, creating a sense of mystery and ambiguity.

My film ‘Marilyn’s Grid’ focuses on theatrical and dramatic themes, emphasising drama and suspense. I do enjoy taking one or two objects and seeing how far I can experiment with a minimal amount of props. In this film I use  three objects, a magazine, a grid and a piece of paper to express a narrative.

In the past I have used a video camera and edited my work on the computer. In recent years I have used my Iphone to film using apps to edit and record. I am now looking into further ways in which to experiment with this medium. You can view my experimental films on the YouTube links below and on Vimeo
