This is the talented Mr Thompson going about his business while I poke a camera around. I had posted it before as I made the video some time ago but I had issues with the music until now. Thanks to Michael Wildsmith.
This film was made for an exhibition curated by Nous Vous on behalf of the Canal and River Trust in conjunction with Contemporary Art Society and Arts Council England. The images were taken alone the canal between Islington, Limehouse and up to Hackney Wick. The sound track is made up of sounds recorded from the canal and from interviews with staff at the Canal and River Trust. It was composed by Michael Wildsmith.
I made this video with The Bookhouse Boys for their amazing new single, out in November. If you don’t have the album already go and get it here. The video was edited by the brilliant Matt Hoad Robson.
