Well the film is finished, the research, for the time being, is complete. As you can see from the pictures Venue 33 is nearly ready to open its doors!
The Shadowland Project exhibition will open today 27thSeptember 2018 at 10am until 5pm every day until Sunday 30thSeptember. If you do manage to make it to Halsway Manor you can find me in the workshop area behind the mews building, just follow the yellow signs.
I have managed to transport the mulitplane camera, made to Lotte Reiniger’s designs, to Halsway so budding filmmakers can take a look at it. You will also be able to see the puppets I made, some of my research and, of course, the animation.
There are a couple of special events taking place over the weekend which you might like to visit; On Saturday 29thOctober at 2pm there is a ‘meet the artist event’ when I will be explaining a little more about the project to visitors and sharing some of my discoveries. As this weekend is Open Studios ‘Family Friendly weekend’ I will be making puppets with visitors on Sunday 30th. The workshops take place at 10am and 2pm and cost £10 per family but you will need to book in advance.
I will be at the exhibition for the whole of the weekend and I always enjoy meeting with visitors and discussing the work. I really hope some of you make it over but, just in case you can’t, I will let you know how it goes – wish me luck!
