"my favourite beach - West Whittering in East Sussex England. I wanted to shoot in intimate close up using short depth of field DSLR HD. I live in Nottingham - about as far away from the sea as you can get in the UK .This is a type of beach memory film - for all us city dwellers who need to remember the coast line and nature. A type of antidote to our urban life where we forget about nature. The water is out there and its always moving and we should be in it."

"The project has given me a close insight to working with new people and having a responsibility within a crew. I feel as though my knowledge has excelled in the moving image area. I discovered that so much hard work and effort goes into a short five minute production."

"The goal of this class is to articulate and explore what intimacy means in visual terms. We will try and assemble a rhetorical rather than a purely emotional guide to the photograph's intimate claims. In the end, we may come to the conclusion that intimacy cannot be photographed directly (as we experience it) because, quite simply, the camera is always in the way. The trick, perhaps, is to understand intimacy as an imaginary space -- an illusion that exploits our very real longing for a profound and authentic encounter with another."
