Birmingham Stand Up!

March 31, 2009

A good friend of mine Matt recently alerted me to this movie he had just completed and screened at ‘Flatpack Festival’, Tacit.

In short it is a movie of his world famous partner Lucy McLauchlan painting for the opening of an exhibition at the Walsall museum and art gallery.

Beautifully shot in HiDef B+W stop motion this movie is serious and what is more is that the whole thing was done ‘in house’. All of the film production, music scoring ( a circuit bent broken radio and a ‘prepared’ piano in the reception of Birmingham’s Custard Factory ), title sequencing, end crediting, and jiggerypokering was all done by Matt and Lucy… with a little help from their friends!

D.I.Y is most certainly where it is at.
