What's your inspiration Huw?
I am a self employed artist and sculptor. I specialise in creating a link between the past and the present and use storytelling, illustration, sculpture and historical research to make this possible. I have created a number of public commissions that illustrate this point. There is a wealth of such material being lost daily and it needs a bit of love to bring it back to life.
So, you are taking care of them?
The Banshee story is particularly dear to me. If dear is a good choice of word. It had withered to a distant memory of my past, a road name and three lines in a 16th century travel book when I got hold of it. I think the film says all this quite well.
How did you find the workshop?
The experience of making the film was emotional, and a little overwhelming. Due mostly to the content of other peoples films. But this was a good thing. It gave it all greater meaning. After such soul searching I feel we needed a little more time to do our final efforts justice but this aside, it was a fabulous experience and this was very much due to the excellent guidance and approachability of the workforce. An excellent experience and a medium that will finally allow for genuine records of an area's life.
