Solway Film

(2 minutes 49 seconds/16mm/2016)

A 16mm animated portrait of the boats and ships visiting and departing from Maryport, Silloth and Workington harbour on the west coast of Cumbria. Filmed from October 2015 to April 2016. The film re-imagines the boat scenes from Marie Menken’s 1962 film, Go, Go, Go, but the change in location creates a version quite different from the original.

Soundtrack: Classic BBC Radio Theme ~ Shipping Forecast (Sailing By) composed and performed by the Alan Perry/William Gardner Orchestra.

The film was shown at the Vallum Ditch Gallery in Carlisle from 1th September to 6th October 2016 as part of Young Cumbrian Artist of the Year.
