Experiments in Sound and Vision rescoring Norman McLaren, Evelyn Lambert and Jennifer Wicks - bring an instrument for a live, improvised jam

About this event

Begone Dull Care [A Phantasy in Colors]

Norman McLaren, Evelyn Lambart



In this extraordinary short animation, Evelyn Lambart and Norman McLaren painted colours, shapes, and transformations directly on to their filmstrip. The result is a vivid interpretation, in fluid lines and colour, of jazz music played by the Oscar Peterson Trio.

Then pick up your instruments and jam along to this iconic, experimental film!

GP Film Unit

Jennifer Wicks



A 16mm community collaboration film made during the COVID19 lockdown.

The Glasgow Postal Film Unit [GP Film Unit] is a postal 16mm film project set up in response to COVID19 to support families during lockdown and provide children and people in isolation with online workshops to explore the experimental filmmaking process.

Strips of blank 16mm film were posted out to participants in Greater Glasgow who then posted back their work which was subsequently spliced together to create a collaborative film.
