Excerpt from Unravel- The longest Hand Painted Film in Britain, a project I co-founded and co-directed since 2010, visiting over 95 venues across the country and involving over 4000 participants in the making of the film and the soundtrack. Winner of the Deutsche Bank Award for Art at the Royal College of Art 2010, Unravel is an epic project that will create a hand painted film that correlates in length with the 874 miles between John O'Groats and Land's End - taking each metre between these two edges of mainland Britain as a ratio to equal one frame of 16mm film.
This 4 minute excerpt is taken from the workshop held in King Edward VI College in Nuneaton, on 16th February 2011. The visuals are the result of directly drawing, scratching and painting onto 16mm film using cameraless film techniques, and the soundtrack is the edited sound from interviews and recordings from the day in Nuneaton.
In its final form the 16 hour long film will be shown as an installation in the venues and communities that have helped make it.
