Experiments in using print with film.
A film about Kirtlington Park in Oxfordshire. Layers from images made by prints are intertwined with footage. The film is intended to be screened alongside the prints.

A sequence of images generated by printmaking. Monoprints and offset etchings are combined with drawn marks.
Each frame dissolves to the next in a vertical way. Thus I implied a narrative.
Using film as a means of seeing prints, rather than an exhibition or a book, brings into question the specificity of film as a medium.

Print has evolved as a means of reproducing images and text. As an artist, I respond to the material quality of the surface used to create the image (copper, stone, wood). The unexpected occurrences during the process are also full of creative potential.Film is light moving in time. It is dependent on apparatus, fleeting, insubstantial, yet all encompassing. It carries photography’s congealed time into the appearance of movement: living time.
The prints are made using print processes and offset etching enhanced with drawing. The film is made in Final Cut Pro.

This is the first film I made and was a collaboration with my niece, Daisy Maconnell. The film was in memory of my nephew, Freddy, who died young. The music was kindly given by Tom Milsom and the song was by Freddy himself. The images are etchings with mono print and the film was made in cross dissolve using iMovie.
