One Square Mile @ Lightwaves Fest, Salford

November 25, 2016 | By | One Comment

ONE SQUARE MILE – a new artist film commission by myself and Chris Paul Daniels, premieres at LIGHTWAVES festival in Salford, from 9th – 18th December. The film is one of four artists films that have been curated as part of the Northern Artist Film Programme, which is in itself part of a much larger festival of digital art works that will be installed in and around Salford Quays

At 7 minutes, our film is mercifully short, but incredibly rich, comprised of a variety of film-making experiments and techniques that aimed to canvas the diversity of spaces within our One Square Mile ‘area of investigation’, whilst at the same time highlighting the absurdity of trying to represent and quantify a place as complex as Salford and Media City. The film was shot over 3 months, using a questionable research methodlogy that produced many hours of fantastic footage, that was then distilled down to it’s final form. Psychogeography meets Open University only to be co-opted by the  Re-Generation Game. I am extremely proud of our ‘film baby’.

One Square Mile was co-commissioned by Univeristy of Salford and Quays Culture, and will at some print, I believe, be screened as a pre-feature short at HOME, Manchester.

Going to the Pictures

March 22, 2013 | By | No Comments


I’ve been working on a project with the Plaza Community Cinema, exploring the heritage of cinema within North Liverpool. My role has been to develop branding and design for the project, creating print outcomes including a map of the 21 local cinemas, and also setting up the website for showcasing the research findings of the project. It’s obviously a project that interest me greatly, as the themes overlap with that of A Small Cinema – aiming to understand the changing ecology of film exhibition.

The final website is now live, and features video interviews, editorial research, memorabilia, and a map of the 21 cinemas. It’s an interesting archive framing local heritage against a wider social history.
