November 4th, 2014 by

‘How (not) to rob a train’ will be trundling its way to Berlin in November (more precisely November 14th at 11pm) to play at the 30th Interfilm Berlin Film Festival in the Eject programme. Please book and head on down if you’re in Berlin – it looks to be a night of wacky and weird films – Unicorns, men withs mouths for faces and cardboard explosives (that’s us).

She would move the tree rather more to the middle

August 18th, 2014 by

I am happy to say that I shot my first short film in Canada yesterday for the Festival delle Lettere in Milan in collaboration with The London Short Film Festival, with wonderfully talented and dedicated people.

Don’t forget your mittens at CineFringe Festival

July 12th, 2014 by

Don’t forget your mittens will screen at the 2014 CineFringe Film Festival in Edinburgh. Described as ‘Heartwarming experimental work from the UK’ (I think!) you should probably go if you are in Edinburgh for the festival. And it is really very short!

It is screening on the 1st of August at 4:10 in the FRINGE MIXTAPE II: PEAKS Programme at Sweet Venues (Venue 18) in Grassmarket.

Hope you can make it!

Don't forget your mittens at CineFringe Film Festival, Anna Maguire

Fun afternoon at Cody Dock (which is amazing and somewhere I didn’t know existed!) shooting portraits for an article on the ever impressive Megan Piper’s The Line for Petri(e) Inventory. In between thunder and lightening storms and lashing rain, I managed to take a few portraits!!

The lovely people at Art Wednesday did another feature on me and some of my work and what inspires me. Mainly Frank O’Hara. It’s pretty much Frank all the way. Here is a picture of him so you too can get a little fix.

Trigonometry at inHOUSE film festival 2014

April 1st, 2014 by

Hello there,

I know you can see it online, so moot point for most of you (!) but Trigonometry our little fashion film is playing at the inHOUSE film festival this month. I’m looking forward to supporting the warehouse community I lived in for a bit last year. It’s a great thing they’re doing, and it’s full of interesting and talented people, but the council is threatening to close them down – so come along and show your support if you can – April 9th-13th 2014, and our screening is on the 10th.

I am going to be dressing up in a cow outfit and standing in a field of mud for Invertigo’s Miscellany at the Rich Mix this Friday and Saturday for the IdeasTap takeover. Come hang out. Or come laugh at me. Or come point. Or come point AND laugh. Or cry.

New photographs from the past (2012)

February 12th, 2014 by

I found these negatives from a trip to France and Istanbul (and some London) in a box when moving house. The mystery of the missing negatives is solved! A strange little foray back into 2012…
