The brand new ArtBeat Film Strand launches on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd June at Create Studios, Hartopp Road.
About the Clarendon Park Film-makers
A group of extremely talented Clarendon Park film-makers will show a selection of their films and chat with the audience about the work. The final programme is still coming together, but here’s a sneak preview of what you can expect on the night. Makers include:
Bill Newsinger is a man of many filmic talents including documentary making, video production and producing his own music for his films. Bill enthuses that “film-making is a fantastic medium for telling stories and sharing messages.” Amongst his many works, Bill has made a fantastic series of films about Clarendon Park’s own Queens Road Allotments entitled “Not Lost the Plot“.
Maria Collingham is a local visual artist, whose paintings have been displayed at the Open 27 Exhibition at Leicester Museum. Her film “Home” has been made in collaboration with Dr. Matt Kerry, lecturer in film at Nottingham Trent University. As you may expect from a visual artist, Maria’s work reflects a deep interest in the colour, mood and texture of film.
Michael Lane is the driving force behind ArtBeat Film and a Clarendon Park resident. Michael uses film mainly to tell stories. He enjoys creating a fresh approach with each film. His solo piece, “Some Questions, Like Ghosts, Haunt” won a Highly Commended Award at Stratford-on-Avon Film Festival 2015. He recently showed “Boxes” a soap opera starring three cardboard boxes at the Five Lamps Film Showings in Derby. For the ArtBeat Film Night, Michael will be showing, “Dream of a Tender Robbery“, a romance taking place during a bank robbery.
