Adventure | Antur album release

This album has been an adventure | antur to make –  a bit like plunging in to the North Sea without a wetsuit, swimming towards the rainbow! No, it’s not me on the front cover, but I’m in awe of these women, with their orange floats, who swam at North Berwick on a wet winter’s day.  The album is dedicated to love and laughter, and days that unfold – a doorway to delight.

There is also a songbook, including original photographs of magical places in Wales along with the lyrics. I can post a copy to you, when you get in touch.

A wonderful trip to Patagonia, creating content for Urdd Gobaith Cymru including filming and photography. Also excited to have made an item for Boom. It was fantastic to receive such a warm welcome from the Welsh community and have a chance to visit Nant-y-Pysgod and see the incredible landscape of the Steppe, The Andes and the buzzing Buenos Aires.

Good to be back at Llanover Hall – a wonderful location for creativity. Glad that the place I was introduced to photography is still there inspiring so many people . I loves the Diff! Thank you Criw Celf.

Looking forward to the exhibition in Arcade on the 17th of August.

Film poetry

A triad of poems reflecting on solitude and our relationship with nature as we process emotions.
A collaboration between the visual artist and a poet where the language of words and the moving image collide in a beautiful symmetry.
An exploration of the film maker’s response to the imagery in the poems.

Very positive response from the audience @chaptermoviemaker. Thanks Tom for the description of “eloquent”!

Void music video

As part of #timetotalk day today, here’s a new version of Void, a song and film that aims to raise awareness of mental health. This film explores the themes of suicide and captures the essence of a state of mind.   Let’s continue the conversation about mental health and support people who are facing difficulties. Let’s be open and strong in order to eliminate stigma, and celebrate creativity in our community. 

Thank you to those who made this project possible.

Ymladd | Fighting

A good, energetic start to 2019 with a Dance, Drama, Sound and Film collaboration. Ymladd explores the connections and creative possibilities between dance and boxing.  The project, which has been an explosive collaboration between dance and boxing communities, aims to give voice to women’s boxing in Wales, and to celebrate the female experience of combative forms of training, using boxing technique as a physical vocabulary for dance. 

Watch the film, and the shadow concept brought to the performance by the film maker. I’d be delighted to hear your comments.

I thoroughly enjoyed working in the studio with the lights, lens kit and ladder, along with the dancers and colleagues at USW. 

There will be another performance in early April, along with continued work on the boxing documentary.

Adventure music video

An uplifting song and music video filmed on a sunny day in Barry Island!

This music video captures the essence of an uplifting  song I wrote and performed about a day of adventure. Thanks to Trystan Hardy,  Dylan Fowler of Taith and Tim Rivers for all the work, encouragement and playing.

Filmed and edited by Heledd Wyn.
