Document – A Small Cinema on Bold St

September 30, 2009 | By |

Liverpool’s most prolific documentarian Tim Brunsden, was in attendance, and as usual with camera in hand. This gives a really nice introduction to the Small Cinema experience. I heard Tim just got a new Sony Z5, so keep an eye out for his upcoming work!

Thanks you again to all those who created, collated, exhibited, contributed, supported and applauded the event. You can see some photos for the day on the A Small Cinema blog, and also the Re-Dock Flickr page.

A Small Cinema on Bold St is a Re-Dock project that took place as part of Abandon Normal Devices Festival and Bold St Festival. Thankyou to Liverpool City Council for its financial support.

Ticket to Ride

Cinema Ticket from ferry

I came into the studio today to find this wonderful little cinema ticket someone left on my desk  (I don’t know who) Its a ticket for a cinema on a ferry, which I would love to experience.

It’s been great developing the Small Cinema project lately as I’ve been getting exciting packages everyday from film-makers. I’ve had to be quite brutal in selecting which films to show, based on people’s memories and ideas, but they are gonna be great screenings.

John Smith – 'Hands'

John Smith – ‘Hands’ – (Map or Direction – 1 of 4) from Sam Meech on Vimeo.

Last Sunday I went round to John’s house to document a few tracks for his new album ‘Map or Direction’. He made me some cracking beans on toast and a cup of tea and then we did some single shot takes of his new songs. It was a really great afternoon, and once I got home and captured the takes, I was pleased to see they had worked better than I’d initially expected.

Those kind boys and girls at Mercy have included a link to the video in their Flatline fanzine with some lovely comments. Keep a look out for more John Smith shenanigans with the Mercy folk. This is the first of four videos that John will be releasing over the coming weeks. Enjoy.
