Dark-Sky Moor…

Bodmin Moor is a remote, rugged, heather, gorse and fern covered upland granite moorland in Cornwall, England. The Moor is the largest unit of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which spans a number of mostly coastal areas in southwest England. It is the first AONB, a type of landscape in the United Kingdom designated for conservation due to its significant value, to receive International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) accreditation for its dark skies.

We live on Bodmin Moor and it is a landscape that inspires my most recent works. Here is Dark-Sky Moor, a work in progress.

Acadiane Journeys

We have made several films in this series, which feature original music, poetry and special journeys in a Citroen van, some in France and some in the UK. Having let go one Acadiane van in France, when we returned to live in the UK, we have now acquired another one, from the same region of France as the first. So, our back projection screen fits our latest little Citroen van (roll on the exhibitions and festivals) and we have started with two new short films, to add to the others, here’s the series so far, with our most recent film first:
