So what’s next for Follow The Master?
The film has been invited to screen as a part of A Pilgrimage.
‘We will pull the Screen Machine mobile cinema on our journey from Kinlochleven to Nairn, over 5 days. Why? To make a pilgrimage for cinema. To bear witness to its wonders. To celebrate walking & film. In tribute to the road movie genre. In tribute to the brilliance of the Scottish land. To show the world that film deserves such an effort.’

Follow The Master has also been invited to screen at the inaugural Abandon Normal Devices Festival which will run from 23rd-27th September in Liverpool.
They have described the film as ‘a highly distinctive take on death & rambling’.
Greetings from Wooda, an organic farm set on a steep, south-facing valley two miles from the sea at Crackington Haven in Cornwall, owned & run by Gary Whitbread & Max Burrows. I’m here for six weeks on an artist’s residency, supported by the Wooda Arts Award which is offered annually to original and committed artists working in any medium. By way of an introduction to what I’m planning on achieving over the coming weeks, here’s a few extracts from my original application for the award.
My films are characterised by surreal humour, non-verbal/visual storytelling, happenstance & chance as triggers for creativity in narrative, richly woven soundtracks, visceral editing, a love of & dedication to the art of Super 8.
I have two major film projects on the go. The first is a low-medium budget fiction feature film project combining live action & animation, Dummy Jim, about a profoundly deaf man who cycled from Scotland to the Arctic Circle in 1951.
The second is another long-form film which, like Dummy Jim, will playfully combine live action with a montage of experimental elements & techniques. It is also a journey film, this time documenting a walk along the 100 mile long South Downs Way, which I completed along with my girlfriend Lucy Brown & dog Tippy in May 2008.
