A Dismal Visit To Banksy`s Dismaland

I took a dismal trip to Banksy`s Dismaland in Weston Super Mare. Billed as "The UK`s most disappointing new visitor attraction !" the "Bemusement park" as its known features an alternative take on the theme park experience.
There's lots of depressingly dismal things to see from the "dismals" who tell you to "get out and not come back" to the riot van slide and fly tip puppet review you can be sure this certainly isn't Disneyland.
My short film aims to give a flavor of just some of the works on display and the experience of visiting Banksy`s show at the former Tropicana lido in the town from the security gates through to the Exit through the gift shop at the end.

The Victory Show 2015

The Annual Victory Show takes place at Foxlands farm in Cosby and features hundreds of historic wartime vehicles and aircraft recreating the atmosphere of the wartime era. My short film features some of the highlights of the show and the people who bring the sights and sounds of the time period to life. We start in the woodland trenches before moving to the showground itself where various large vehicles are seen heading out to the battlefield and passing time playing cards and musical instruments.

The Big Hoot - Birmingham 2015

The Big Hoot saw a number of plastic owls painted by various artists both local to the city of Birmingham and beyond placed around the city.
Themes included local celebrities like Ozzy Osborne, chrome and mirror plated versions plus a number created by sponsors of the event like Wild In Art, Lloyds Bank and more.
Following the display the Owls will be auctioned to raise funds for the Birmingham Children`s Hospital.
My video focuses on a number of the owls in the city center there are however many more to see and a visit is recommended to find them all.
The Big Hoot runs until 27th September 2015
