Cut my Roots Video Project will take place in november-december and the planning has begun! We are looking for people to get involved! This film will be more than a promo video – it will be a work of art in it`s own right. There will be a strong, positive and inclusive message conveyed in a bold and accessible way. It will involve diverse collaborators, each bringing their own interpretation of freedom to the project. It will strive to celebrate Bristol’s ethnic diversity and draw from its thriving collaborative DIY scene. Visually it will be vibrant, energetic, and playful. It will feature machine embroidery (specifically green birds representing freedom), choreographed dance and movement, and will showcase some of Bristol’s circus performers. Collaborators include bristol musician Rachael Dadd, bristol video artist Sam Wisternoff who has made music videos for This is the kit, Yama Warashi and many more, and choreographer and dancer Holly Holt who choreographed Rachael`s last video Strike Our Scythes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXZ4V6I4oJU
Do you want to get involved?!
Do you live in or near Bristol?
Are you a circus person or do you like to act/dance/bring your skills in some other way?
Or maybe you`d like to be on the production team in some way? Are you available in november/december?
Are you happy to give 2 to 4 days of your time having fun and making something great with a lovely group of people?
We especially want to hear from people who represent one of Bristol`s ethnic minorities to help celebrate Bristol`s diversity.
This is a low budget DIY project so we can`t pay you but will endeavor to cover all of your expenses.
