To kick start a new piece of moving image work, last week Eelyn Lee led a team of eighteen artists, musicians and actors in a five-day lab exploring improvised filmmaking. Eelyn was selected by the Barbcian to develop the work in their studio theatre as part of their Open Lab programme. The lab was also supported by Arts Council England.
"It was an amazing experience. The beginning of the week felt like we were creating improvised theatre and by Thursday the space was functioning as a film set. We have some incredible footage that I can't wait to see cut together" Eelyn Lee, Artist
