The movie-makers’ evening at Chapter was very pleasant. I had feared ‘artistic’ temperaments and bitter rivalry but no. It was a good crowd of creative people coming up with very different films. We had documentary and drama and a variety of budgets. Some had been made over two years; mine was shot and edited in a few hours. Despite its lack of filmic cleverness, The Gun of Jesus was well received and I was approached by two people who were interested in collaborative projects with a poet. Watch this space.
My favourite film was called ‘The Claw’ which was set in Barry Island.
