Synopsis: “Man witnesses evaporation and becomes inspired”.
Put together with a collection of throwaway footage that I felt compelled to record one morning, ‘Inspiration’ was birthed from my ever meta brains desire to be, well, meta.
In line with most other projects I’ve put together, this was formed rather by accident, but hopefully regardless of that, you’re still able to find something in it. What I hear you ask? I’m not really sure – but I should probably say Inspiration. Yeah, let’s go with that.
Paths is the second instalment in Stephen and I’s ’12 Hour Films’ series. It was written, shot, scored and edited in a 12 hour timeframe.
We’ll be honest, we’re not entirely sure what this one is… but we do know we had a right hoot making it.
With that in mind, shifting the focus of filmmaking away from creating the most ideal finished product and moving it more towards finding immense gratification in the process itself is the very reason we started this challenge the first place – and so far its been a top laugh, so that’s nice! Anyway, here’s to another one!
Amongst the footage recorded that night, I found this additional track ‘lola or lolita’ which features on the bands debut album ‘To the Top of the Hill and Roll…’ It felt wrong to let such a beautiful performance sit unseen on a hard drive, so I felt obliged to share this almost forgotten edit.
Thank you to Sofar Sounds for allowing me to document this and for always supporting cities and their local music scenes.
