Buddy films

Over the past couple of Mondays, our filmmaker in Cornwall, Bryony, has been filming the reactions that occur when our community-based creators meet their responders.

To recap:  our creators are members of our local communities and in Cornwall they put together a collection of objects/images/thoughts and forwarded these to some people – we’ve called them responders – to see what might happen.  Initially we asked the responders not to look at the films Bryony had made of the creators, though after their initial response was logged they could then look at the films (this was to try to keep at least the initial response to the objects rather than to a perception of a person).  The responders then created something (we weren’t prescriptive about this!) – and the last part was when the “buddies” met and compared experiences.

I think everyone enjoyed this part, regardless of their expectations (or lack of them).  Jane said, “This has been the best bit!” – seeing how someone else had interpreted her work through making something else; a creative dialogue through making.  We will see the finished films on here quite soon – and then we will all meet to find out what everyone’s experiences – Cornwall and Birmingham together – were like.  It will be very interesting…
