Glut in A Fair Land

Our Glut project with public works is now live, as part of 'A Fair Land' at IMMA Dublin, running till Aug. 28.

A strawbale barn and field, it has used around 600 bales of barley straw and over 200 courgette plants - the fruits of which are served Thursday - Sunday for lunch at 1pm. Do go along if you're nearby, it's spectacular (even if we do say so ourselves).

Pre-Order The Closer We Get - Full Cinema Cut & Extras

Thank you for all the lovely post-BBC feedback on the transmission last weekend, I watched it in Glasgow with my family and it was fun and also a bit surreal!

BBC rules dictate we cannot offer the full 87' cut yet, so in the meantime we can invite you to pre-order the DVD or Vimeo here - you won't regret it!

The Closer We Get - to UK TV!!!!!

It killed us to have to keep this under our hats, but the wise old BBC embargoed us releasing this information until this week! We’re thrilled to announce that The Closer We Get finally reaches the small screen on:

Saturday July 30, 22.40 on BBC2 Scotland

It then spends a whole month available to everyone on the iPlayer, allowing you and all your friends to catch it there too. One thing to mention – this will be the one-hour cut of the film, by the talented editor Mr Michael Nollet. It’s great – don’t get us wrong – just not AS great as the ‘director’s cut’ which you can only get from us, online and on DVD..... :-)

Spread the word dear Somewhere friends, you know we appreciate it.

Another prize for The Closer We Get

Many thanks to Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival for giving us their Women Filmmakers Award 2016.

It's spot on, given how many brilliant and talented women worked on the film - editor Alice Powell, producer & DoP Nina Pope, Kate Reid also on camera, Sally Hodgson our Distribution Producer, and interns Anne Carlin, Maria Duvidzon, Zoe Guthrie and Samantha Towle.

Prospect-a-way

We're quietly getting on with a new project called Prospection, which you can see more about here. It's a 25 year survey of a new area of Cambridge, under development by the University and where our artists residency a few years back took place (and where we built our mudopolis 'Tomorrow, Today').

Working with a mixed team of sociologists, archaeologists and artists we're visiting each year and surveying anything about the place and its inhabitants that takes our fancy. We then put the stuff in a box in the county archives for posterity.Simple!

This week we work once more with the wonderful editor Alice Powell on a short film drawn from our two days filming at the site in November 2015. Expect much high-vis, wind, rain, tea and hard hats....
