Three more …

Here are images of the three remaining music boxes from the seven that I selected for the making of a short film, ‘I Always Wanted To Be …’  The film is currently in the process of being made as part of a collaborative project between myself and film maker, Henrietta Thomas.

‘I Always Wanted To Be …’  will focus on seven vintage music boxes – the melodies they play, the movement of the clockwork ballerinas inside each of them. I am hoping that as part of the soundtrack, it will include various narratives associated with what it means to be a ballerina. The challenge of course, will be how to condense 45 minutes of film footage and over 40 minutes of interviews to a short film of 5-7 minute’s duration. I am looking forward to working with Henrietta once we are able to set aside time for editing at a later date.
