FESTIVAL

As Llandudno gears up for #LLAWN 03, I’m pondering how hectic everything was on the eve of last year’s festivalCylch's Bathing Machine No. 6 Llawn 02 © Jan Miller 2014

Yes previous Clychees, a year has passed already! I promise I had a blog ready in a galaxy far, far away but life always intervenes and now I think the pictures say much more about the festival than I ever could in 300 words. BUT, I do want to say that it was a fantastic experience and a privilege to collaborate with some of the hardest working & energetic people I’ve ever met -Ysgol John Brightees & Cylch, you know who you are! Despite huge, last minute equipment problems (goes with the filmmaking territory I’m afraid), you brought the sea and the landscape and an amazing soundtrack into Bathing Machine No.6.

From script to shoot to installation in less than 2 weeks, it was a huge achievement – even then everyone involved in the piece still had the energy and commitment to completely engage with the festival audience as stewards for Mostyn Cylch,  as well as invigilating Alice, attending the festival and, of course, posing for the press.

Before I go, (I know, I just can’t do less than 300 words), can I just squash in a huge thanks to the inspirational Marc Rees for inviting Cylch & Film Team to his Llwch shoot & to screen Phantom Signal at the Grease Drive-In – yet again technology defeated us but it was absolutely bendigedig to be there! So, enjoy Llawn 03 this weekend and, in no particular order, here’s some very, very fond memories of the joyous Llawn02…
