This short film was my first commission filmed in my new home town of Alnwick in Northumberland. I was contacted by Jo Potts from Alnwick Playhouse who asked me to film and produce a film documenting their Northern Elements spoken word and poetry event.
The event was organised by Arc Stockton and the ArtsCouncil and curated by John Challis from Newcastle based Trashed Organ. The show featured performances from Tim Turnbull, with support from Hannah Jane Walker, Andrew Sclater and Stevie Ronnie. As well as documenting the event I interviewed the performers and audience members.
The film was shot using a Panasonic AF101 and Panasonic GH2.
