In terms of my new film, the single piece of the footage that excites me most is about shots of London glimpsed through a passing train. It creates flickering images – inside then out – a strobing billboard and flashes of colour, light and shade. As a whole, the footage manages to create its own inherent collage without any manipulation from me.
Can a still piece of work still capture something of this shifting nature?
My project feels in a strong place. I have a plan of how the work can be developed further – things to test, new sites to try and new methods of transport to look at. I have a rough budget and a timetable. I know what support I need to strengthen the project. Relevant information, images and a short extract from the film have been updated onto my website. Even if the first application is unsuccessful, I feel poised, ready, with what I need to apply elsewhere.
