A couple of photos from the Whirlygig Spotlight event I did earlier this month. Talking about my short films – Crow Feathers, On the Upside, and The Garden – and also doing a Q&A with Mikey Please (of the BAFTA wining, and brilliant, Eagle Man Stag) and Rebecca E Marshall  (a documentary and experimental film maker who showed the poetic doc Glitter and Storm). The photos are by Helen Nias who also reviewed the event on her blog here..

I  had ‘On The Upside’ up on the Dailymotion site for a while and it featured on their motionmaker page when it was first uploaded and got nearly 10k of hits, but it flatlined since then and so now I have decided to take it down.
