Film, for now (Minolta XG-M with Tokina SZ-X 80-200mm)
film

Thanks for all the advice you gave me a week ago about what camera to get next. My digital has indeed met its maker… I’ve decided to not buy anything now and spend the bucks on film. Between Diana, Viv, and Fishie, there’s plenty of potential.

THIS particular image is COMPLETELY UNIQUE amongst my photostream! I have never posted an image like this–can you guess how it’s different?

This is the first image I’ve posted coming from a telephoto lens. I fixed the old Minolta 35mm SLR we had, and it happens to have a 200mm lens. This is an image of the wind chimes on our back porch intermingling with the "bird of paradise" plant during sunset. We have 75 wind chimes on the porch and they make a glorious sound all day.

Making Moves, Creating Futures for Craft
move

Residency:

Salvation Army
Longton, Stoke
Maker: Ruth Spaak
Graduate Placement: Denise Moloney

Ruth Spaak, glass and mixed media artist, worked with
the members of LASS (Ladies Self Support) women’s
group, based at the Salvation Army. The group responded
enthusiastically to Ruth’s unusual collection of materials to
make mixed-media wall hangings and rag rugs. The
residency was supported by the British Ceramics Biennial
(BCB) and Ruth had access to ceramic materials and
resources from BCB and the former Spode factory site,
which informed the piece she has created for this
exhibition. Denise Moloney worked with Ruth, learning
new skills in delivering workshops in community settings.

Making Moves, Creating Futures for Craft

Making Moves is a West Midlands craft development initiative
involving four regional partnerships, led by Staffordshire County
Council and Craftspace, a Birmingham based craft development
organisation. The project consisted of nine craft residencies
which took place in community settings between September
2011 and July 2012, culminating in a touring exhibition.

The nine makers were challenged by residencies in unusual
workspaces – including a hospital, a pub and a park visitor
centre – which acted as sources of inspiration to develop ideas
for new work. They worked with local communities, offering
making workshops that were high quality, inspirational and in
some cases, life-changing. The exhibition showcases new work
by the makers in response to their residency setting, as well
examples of tools, materials and work created in the community
sessions.

The project also provided opportunities for nine crafts graduates
who supported the community making sessions as well as
receiving mentoring from the resident maker. They were given a
small bursary towards the development of their practice and
have also created new work for the exhibition.

Making Moves aimed to provide valuable opportunities for
learning. Makers gave masterclasses and lectures to Higher
and Further education institutions as well as talks to the wider
community. They wrote about the residency experiences on a
project blog, as well as coming together for regular networking
sessions.

FESTIVAL BIOGRAPHIES

Public Service Announcement:

Brian Stockton – Filmmaker:

Brian Stockton was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1964. He grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and began his career in the media as a broadcaster with illustrious prairie radio station CKCK. In 1984 he was hired by Canadian broadcasting legend Ron MacLean, who was then the program director at CKRD Radio in Red Deer.

After working under MacLean in Red Deer, Brian returned to Regina and obtained a BFA in film production from the University of Regina. At the U of R he studied under cinema pioneer Jean (Hans) Oser, a key figure in the early sound cinema of Europe.

Stockton’s career as a filmmaker began at the Saskatchewan Filmpool in Regina where he created numerous inventive short films like the animated The Blob Thing, which spawned numerous short sequels that have played to television and festival audiences around the world. He is also the co-creator of the cult hit Wheat Soup, which is generally regarded as the first Saskatchewan-based feature film. Wheat Soup is in the motion picture negative collection of the National Archives of Canada.

Another notable short created at the Filmpool is The Final Gift, a collaboration with the filmmaker’s grandmother which was named one of the ten best shorts of the Ann Arbor Film Festival by Los Angeles Film Forum.

Brian also has an MFA in film production from York University in Toronto, and was a director resident at Norman Jewison’s prestigious Canadian Film Centre. While attending the CFC Brian wrote and directed the multi-award winning short film, The Weight of the World, which screened at numerous international festivals and on the Sci-Fi Channel in the United States.

Television has also played a part in Stockton’s career, most notably as a writer/director for the critically acclaimed comedy series Internet Slutts, which aired on The Comedy Network.

Brian has taught extensively on the subject of filmmaking at workshops across Canada, and at his alma mater in Regina. He was recently invited to screen a program of his short films at the Idaho International Film Festival, where he created the Instant Animation Workshop. In this innovative program participants wrote, prepared and shot a stop-motion animated film in one afternoon.

Stockton is currently working on a series of autobiographical short films which have premiered to widespread critical acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival. This includes Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Part 2 (That’s My Wonderful Town), which won the grand jury prize for best documentary at the Temecula Valley Film Festival in California, and was declared by Take One Magazine to be “a wry, observant, miniature masterpiece.”

After nine years living and working in Toronto, Stockton recently relocated back to his home town of Regina, Saskatchewan.
