Save Event: The Art of Storytelling through our eyes

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Everyone involved in this event are studying either film, photography, or fine art at university. In 2015 the group did a film foundation with UAL’s London College of Communication.


Film today is the most popular medium for storytelling, having a collective grounding in this medium some have stayed with it, experimenting within its borders and others have moved away from film whilst you can still see direct relations to the form. Three short films are being shown, the first is a contemporary ballet composed and performed by Catriona Thomas, directed by Lara Diamond with cinematography by Ernest Tu. The film takes place in an abandoned fabric warehouse.

After this a short by George Nick Al Khoui a Jordanian filmmaker, who last year spent a whole year studying in London and now he is doing a BA in Film producing with UAL, his film he is displaying is all about his experience in London last year and preferably his trip through Richmond Park.

Then we have an Animation by Claudia Ortega, an experimental piece that explores the story and transition of colours with characters.

Photography by Ana Paganini and Matilde Corno, in which they represent their journey around Elephant and Castle and Budapest.

A conceptual piece of sculpture by Conor Ackhurst attempting to expand our awareness of sensations that we often miss. His work is a physical manifestation of what we see when our eyes are closed. There is a morbid and ambiguous story that unfolds.

Lara Diamond has created an interactive animated bike, tying to the roots of cinema itself. This is a participatory piece that shows the great lengths Lara goes to have her audience engage and go away with something a little bit different.

Finally, a debut of the paintings of Rodrigo Marques Mendes. Rodrigo has projected images onto a canvas then painted and overlaid different colours and images to display a story within his three paintings.
