Lights, Camera, Museum

We had a fantastic evening filming at Hertfordshire’s Lowewood Museum. We were filming for their new short film “Absolutely” . One of the great things about the Hoddesdon based museum is they not only make you welcome but also make every visit fun.


Lights, Camera, Astro

Spent the day filming at Astro Lighting where we were lucky to catch artist Valerie Inns’ lunchtime workshop. The film captures artists including Sarah Brown, Valerie Inns, and Connie Flynn’s work. This work was made as part of residences in businesses including Raytheon, Astro Lighting, and Arrow Electronics for a forthcoming exhibition, Arts Means Business at the The Gibberd Gallery.


And On The Panel…

Looking forward to working with the Youth Panel from Lowewood Museum in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire on their new short film. Such a fantastic museum with a great programme and such interesting exhibits. 


Location, Location: A Marsh

We’ve been location scouting in Kent. It’s always important to find not only the right location but also the right people to work with. Fortunately we found both great people and great locations in this fabulous county. We always think time spent in pre -production is never wasted. Hope to be filming near St. Mary’s, Higham later in the year. The area is close to Charles Dickens’ former home at Gads Hill, and close to some great Kentish marshes, which feature in Great Expectations.


Long Live the Video Store

Continuing on from the blast from the past theme. (For those who don’t know)Yes, it’s a video rental store. I saw this yesterday in a small seaside town in Kent, Broadstairs. So rare now. 

There was always something about looking at the covers and making your choices. On Demand is great but there was something tactile even personal about video/DVD stores. Those boxes on the shelf when I was kid like Assault on Precinct 13, Matewan , Scarface, or The Deerhunter were a great start on the way to film and filmmaking. 

It’s amazing how early choices can have so much of an impact on life and career.

Long live the Video store and let’s not even talk about the bookstore.
