A Thousand Shards of Glass – Trailer

FILM, WRITING

To support the live performances of A Thousand Shards of Glass, we shot a short trailer, over the course of one intense day in July 2012.

“Lucy? Are you there? Are you ready? We need to get you out of there…”

The trailer was used extensively on the internet, and was also shown in the cinema at mac Birmingham, prior to our performances there. It was pretty amazing to see the trailer on the big screen, and brilliant that the quality totally stood-up in that context.

I scripted the trailer, based on excerpts from my original performance text. Jane Packman and I co-directed. Camera is by Chris Keenan and it’s performed by Lucy Ellinson.

Here it is on vimeo:

You Are The Moon

DESIGN, FILM, PERFORMANCE

mixtape

I collaborated with Jon Spooner to make this short performance/film for Unlimited Theatre‘s MIXTAPE project. We worked together for a few days in Birmingham, and later showed (and filmed) the performance at BAC.

The piece is our response to You Are The Moon by The Hush Sound. Jon and I collaborated on the initial devising, writing and creation of the piece. I then designed and lit the piece, and Jon performed.

It was filmed by Chris Cottam, and edited by Gareth McEwan. Here it is, on vimeo:
