CSCI Research Seminar Series: Two approaches to film practice: Hans Petch and Jennifer Nightingale

Events — Research Seminar Online

Please join us for a CSCI research event that focuses on two colleagues from Film and Media who approach filmmaking from quite different angles.

Hans Petch has over two decades of broadcast experience, primarily for the BBC where he produced and directed documentary series, factual studio programmes and stand-alone arts documentaries. His current interests involve rethinking creative approaches to filmmaking in lockdown. He has just completed two short films Fuel Stop (Tom & Jerry meet David Lynch in this sci-fi tale told using his grandfather's 35mm slides) and Swimming, which uses archive and animated graphics and stars Simon Callow as a tired angel.

Jennifer Nightingale’s approach to filmmaking is experimental and uniquely craft orientated. Her work has primarily involved two series: the pinhole films and a group of films that are translations of regional knitting patterns. She has shown her films in various international film festivals and art galleries, including Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the Serpentine Gallery. Her Cornish knitting films are part of a creative practice-based PhD research project that embeds various patterns back into the landscapes that inspired them.
