Me & Mine | Lucy Beech - Artist Film

Me and Mine

Me & Mine
was finally finished too - previously known as Credible Passion (see entry back in August when we shot in Bournemouth & Bourneville).

Lucy Beech's new work 'Me and Mine' is a 40-minute film pivoting around an annual awards event called the The Good Funeral Awards at which the growing contribution of women to the funeral industry is celebrated (awards given out for best grave digger etc...), 'Me and Mine' records (and applauds) this transformation, but also pauses to reflect on what else these changes might be said to signify. It premiered at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, from 2 May - 4 July, before travelling to Tetley, Leeds, from 17 July - 27 September. This is her most significant solo show to date.

Lucy's work often (maybe even always?) includes an element of choreography / body theatre. She takes every day (sometimes mundane) situations and analyses them & replays them in a way that makes them extraordinary, making the audience think about things in a very different way. Working with Clara van Gool on The Beast in the Jungle and Voices of Finance, has made me think of Lucy and her work again. There is something so intriging working with dancers in these contexts.

I really love Lucy's film Open House, Rob taking prospective buyers through the rituals of home showing. Great piece.

BIFA Crocodile and Baby

BIFA has had a great idea in this period of Coronavirus lockdown - they have made all the BIFA nominated and winner shorts over the past 10 years available to view for FREE. How lovely to see BABY and CROCODILE up there and among such an exciting batch of films - great to be able to watch them all.

Films in LFF2019

This year my highlight of the festival was going to NFT1 to listen to an interview with Céline Sciamma, fabulously talented French writer director of Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood (writer of the animated My Life as a Courgette) and in this year’s festival - her period piece Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
