Top film - "Manipulator"
Bottom film - "I Am Fluid"
Manipulator was made in a single day featuring Helen Foot working on her loom. It was the first collaboration between Richard Foot and Arron Fowler, and marked the beginning of a blossoming partnership. The film was not planned out but was an exploration between the relationship of the weaver, and the loom. The film took 11 hours to make for the 2 minutes you see on screen.
Helen - "This was a really interesting experience for me. I'd never had a film made about my work before, and it was so fantastic to see the final result on show at the V&A."
I Am Fluid - The second film was created under the same guidelines and was shot in a single day. This film features local glass making artist Natalie Hildegarde Liege and is also at the Power of Making exhibition at the V&A. Richard and Arron are starting a new series of films today which will be shot over the course of a week and will feature 5 makers, two of which include our Collaborate artists Matt Sewell and Christophe Dillinger.
