The wind - you either love it or hate it. It collides, touches, embraces, heats and even freezes you. It's just there. Humankind has had a fascination with it forever - its been the subject matter of poems, films and songs. Him & Her created an homage to the wind in this experimental film. Him (Fred Flade) has always loved the wind, whereas Her (Luiza Cruz-Flade) has always hated it.

One Sunday...an unplanned and spur of the moment project - I cut out words from the newspaper and arranged them into this prose. Again unplanned my friend and actor Katya Chitova improvised it at that moment in time. We recorded the improv on my iPhone so I decided to create this moving image piece.
And so Newspaper Prose was born - I plan to create a series of these prose over 1 week and then create 7 bespoke films. See more at social-debut.com

"Save all your images to the Cloud" they tell me. And then what?
Memories be they in the Cloud or in our heads - we all take so many photos documenting moments in our lives. All our yesterdays and hopefully our tomorrows. I set myself a one day project which is this. This film shows some of my yesterdays - moments in time spent with family and friends, at work, on holiday or just a moment in time where I took a photo. Are these photos better than my memory? I doubt it but every now and then - I look back at my phone and remember all those good times and smile and hope for more.
