Go behind the lens with young artists Nicholas Popham and Ben Tupper as they share the making of their new films as part of Camera Buff – Spike Island’s online commissioning strand of experimental films for 16–24 year olds based in the South West of England. Popham uses film-making as a way to expand sculpture and performance, while Tupper’s work manifests itself primarily through found and made objects that are presented alongside video installations. Hear how they are developing their initial proposals into shorts ready for online broadcast.
Camera Buff is part of the Random Acts South West Network Hub led by Calling the Shots. Over the course of three years, 72 short films will be produced. Application rounds for Camera Buff run twice a year until 2018.
