Things Fall Apart in post-production

Things Fall Apart is now in post-production. The new film and sound work set in Coventry was shot across 2013 to 2015. The video edit and sound design are being developed in tandem, with the multi-channel soundtrack featuring a performance by Coventry's own Jaguar Land Rover Band, recorded earlier this year.

The project is due for completion in late March 2016.

El Museo

2am Lunes Santo (Holy Monday) of 2015, in the Plaza del Museo (Seville): Four years on, I find myself back here, awaiting in the same corner of the square where in the darkness we filmed what would turn out to be Pepe Peregil's last saetas in public, before his untimely death on January 27th 2012. For a number of reasons it has taken this long to complete production on this film, and the images captured this year documenting the arrival of Cristo de la Expiración and the Virgen de las Aguas arriving "home" to the Plaza del Museo, will be the last before post-production begins this year.
