A series of Super 8 film masterclasses, solo performances and collaborations showcasing the output of musician and filmmaker Hugh Metcalfe.

More

Hugh Metcalfe is a British musician and artist in many forms. Alongside his music gigs, performance clubs, audio projects, poetry and paintings he has amassed a formidable catalogue of 8mm celluloid films that he has shot himself. These pieces of micro-cinema have documented his unique world and vision(s). Individually and seen in bursts they prove to be cinematic treasures that have been produced in his own deeply poetic, philosophical and rhythmic style, that clearly synchronises with his music and artistic practices.

In the second half of 2013 Hugh gave a series of Super 8 film masterclasses, solo performances and collaborations with others in music venues as well as cinemas and farms. These shows were specially put together, and titled, to exhibit a selection of the films alongside Hugh's music and his deep rooted and unique collaborative ethos. Working with a crew of old and new musical partners Hugh will improvise live to his films, which will be projected from 8mm projectors.
