Newport

A structural home-movie - self censored from screenings for many years - resurrected.

The original material was shot in 16mm Black and White during a family camping holiday in South Wales. I initially filmed the sequences following the lines and directions of features in the landscape rather than following action. The initial footage is then copied three times and the contrast level changed. The resulting material is then edited with the repeats but not in a predictable sequence. Eventually the film concentrates on the 'home-movie' subject of my children and those of another family who shared the holiday. M.L.G. 2004
