New Work: Cock and Bull Festival 2013 Promo

Cock and Bull Festival Photo


Time to share a little side project that I did for fun last summer.  It's deepest darkest 2013, it's March now and the weather outside still feels like Greenland.  However, summer is most definitely on it's way, and in that frame of mind; here's the promo film that I completed some time ago but forgot to post, from last year's Cock and Bull festival.



I shot the promo on my 5D over a fantastic July weekend on the farm last year, between lugs of cider and throwing the occasional hay bale.  What started out as a bit of fun, became a beautiful thing in the edit suite as we sat and reviewed the moments that we'd captured.

The festival is on a small farm down in the west country; and any money made goes to the Jamie's Farm Charity, that helps take post-code bound inner city kids out into the country and give them some time on the farm, learning about life in the countryside.  It's easy for many of us to assume that the countryside is accessible to all but the truth is, if you're a kid on an estate in a big city, the countryside may as well be Australia.

So, if you fancy a little music and some time away this summer, and you want to know it's for a good cause then maybe you should put on your dancing wellingtons and get on down to Cock and Bull 2013 - tickets now on sale.


And I'll leave you with a small off-cut from the festival promo shoot - here's the fabulous Tanya Auclair performing in the big barn at last year's festival - she just confirmed playing this year.
