Snow Q from Snow Q on Vimeo.

Question: How can you summarise months of work – discussion, ideas, attempts to blend together the creativity of artists working in entirely different fields, music, fine art, photograpy/video and poetry – in one short documentary film? 

Answer: It’s impossible! Not that it ever puts artists off! We live and breathe impossible… Luckily, Snow Q, our collaborative project to re-imagine Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen, had filmmaker Rosie Powell who came to us during rehearsal just before the opening of our installation and shot some amazing footage. With that and some additional footage from Snow Q’s own filmmaker Wendy Pye, Rosie and Wendy between them have put together a short documentary with help from sound engineer Simon Yapp, which we hope will give you some idea of what we’ve been up to.

If you couldn’t come to the installation we hope it gives you a flavour of our work and if you came along a reminder. We’re now thinking how to take our many new ideas forward. Watch this space!

    1. I’m not sure what device you are on but in the email version it’s a bit unclear I agree! If you click on the title of the blog post where it says Film Film it should open out and you will see the video link and you just click on the arrow. Let me know if that works! (I just tried it on my computer and it did!) And in case anyone is wondering about the ads I have no idea how to remove them. It may be because we are using a free site – I have noticed them on other people’s blogs?
