PETER BLAKE : 'From Sir With Love'

Producer/Directors:  David Stephenson and Stephen Daltry

Camera:  Stephen Daltry

Song :  Lyrics by David Stephenson, Music & Production by Jonathan Stapleton

 

 Through my colleague David Stephenson of the Rocket Gallery, I filmed  the artist Peter Blake in his west London studio on one hot day in July 2007. He talked very openly about his life and work, his education, Ian Dury, Robert Fraser, Popular Art, the ruralists, about the Sergeant Pepper album cover, and Sammy Davis Jr. Some of these images filmed in his studio were used to accompany David Stephenson's song.

PAPER DREAMS

Directors:  Stephen Daltry

Screenwriter:  Maureen Thomas & Stephen Daltry

Producer:  Apsley Paper Mill and White Knight Pictures

Editor:   Jon Walker

Filmed at Leavesden's green screen studio, this corporate film was made for Apsley Paper Trail, Frogmore Paper Mill, Hertfordshire., in collaboration with writer and dramaturg Maureen Thomas.

"For its launch Apsley Paper Trail wanted to show the link between past and present at Frogmore and Apsley mills in an engaging and attractive way.  Lewis Carroll, creator of the classic children's book 'Alice Through the Looking-Glass, used as a boy to entertain his 10 brothers and sisters with plays written for a paper toy theatre, and we were delighted with White Knight's concept - an excellent example of how modern digital and traditional approaches can come together."
