You will find recent work and an archive covering some films of the last 20 years of work on my Youtube channel.
WAITING FOR THE FLOOD
A short documentary film with a twist, born out of a dramatic family history. Three generations of stories about water and drowning, recreated by three generations of the Thompson family. The film explores the meeting between performance and the site specific, sound design and cinematography, to create an atmospheric and unsettling experience. Waiting For The Flood is a collaboration between Deadbeat Films and interdisciplinary artist Melanie Thompson.
