Tyburnia screening with director James Holcombe

Today we were able to watch the film ‘Tyburnia’ with director James Holcombe who will be helping us out later when we begin working with Bolex cameras to film. The film referred to the Tyburn Gallows in central London and the history that it has left which can be still seen in the present day. It was extremely experimental, using strobe effects and repeated shots of the same thing but from different angles. I found this to be extremely effective, as it really symbolised the act of watching as an audience both looking at the past and the past looking at the executions.
