Treasure Box



I hope you like the short film I shot for my exhibition. It was lovingly shot on Super 8 film and was projected on the back wall in The Old Shoreditch Station. 

Thanks to the talented team who worked on it with me, Polly Banks styling, Liz Daxauer Hair and Make-up, Sarah May set design, Alex on lighting and starring the beautiful Cecile at Union models

Also special thanks to Castle Gibson for the use of their location, and Alex Lindsay who in a fortunate chance meeting made it all possible by lending me his camera

Hi
Thanks for all your comments about the film, I'm glad you have enjoyed it. The music is 'She's a Rainbow' by The Rolling Stones.
