'Scratch' Film Shoot 2008
In 2008 I was asked to provide some artwork for a scene in the new feature film, Scratch, by film director Jakob Rorvik (www.jakobrorvik.com). The scene was shot inside the Jago Gallery where I had previously exhibited some of my paintings. The pieces that I provided for the shoot were my sculptures, And When I’m a Man (I’ll think As a Man, Baby Kit, Nail Box and Dreams of Being Batman.
Here is some info about the film, that I lifted from Jakob’s site -
Lena is a young art student new to London. Calling it her art project, she obsessively follows and takes pictures of an unwitting Sol; a scruffy, charismatic 20 year old, by all appearances homeless, who drifts around in numerous detached relations to people affiliated with the art scene.
Her project takes a wrong turn when Sol discovers her. Fascinated by her odd behaviour, Sol is now the one to follow her.
Against a backdrop of contemporary East-London, Sol and Lena gradually expose each other’s dreams, fears and lies.
The cast includes Viktoria Winge (Reprise), Luke Treadaway (Brothers of the head, War Horse), Patrick Kennedy (Atonement) and Montserrat Lombard (Ashes to Ashes, Vanilla Song).
The film is produced by Tamsin Lyons at the Oscar-Winning production company Breakthru Films and Yngve Sæther at Motlys.
