// a film
Sarah’s favourite book is The British Locomotive Shed Directory, and she loves nothing more than to jump on a train with a flask and a packed lunch and head out for a full day of spotting. Shedspotting.
I co-directed this film with Doug Lyon for Straight 8. The idea came from a character created by the wonderful Anne Langford, who also appears in the film.
It was shot using a single Super 8 cartridge, no retakes, no editing. As per the Straight 8 rules, the audio was recorded separately and submitted, and the first time we saw the completed film was when it was chosen to be screened at the ICA as part of Rushes Soho Shorts Festival 2011.
