The Nice Arms

A collaborative film project with artist and curator Alex Hetherington, which looks at the processes of 16mm film in terms of how footage is planned and compiled around a written and recorded voiceover.

Footage has so far included contributions from Holly Know Yeoman and Scott Baxter. Still photography by camera assistant Ben Soedira. The text, written and recorded by Richard Taylor, observes people and conversations in the beer garden of a pub in Northampton. It also references memories of working in pubs in Leeds, as well as the rose the artist's grandfather gifted his father before passing away.
