And so! Here we are on the first day of our Hedgespoken crowdfunding campaign, having already raised £4395!!
We are stunned and excited and so grateful to everyone who has helped make the beginning of this story so thrilling!
What makes us particularly happy is the warmth and enthusiasm that you are all showing for this project and for the reigniting of liminal magic!
This dream-journey began long ago for us, but we wanted to share with you a few pictures of the day we made that little film up there, with the incredible expertise of Annabel Allison of Wax Films who steered the crowd and helped us to battle our camera nerves, and then put the whole thing together afterwards. How lucky we were to have her!
But we also couldn’t have made this film without our truly amazing and creative community, who, when called upon by us to spend time dressed in their vagabond-circus finery for a day creating a film among the trees on the back of an old lorry, they came and they did us proud in their magnificent feathers and outrageous coats, in their antlers and masks and moons they made our little film unique and incredibly beautiful.
And we all had tremendous fun! There was food shared around the fire, and children practised their hula-hooping and poi skills, the horses had their manes plaited and faces were painted.
We’ll tell you all about the people in our film a little further down the road, as they are many of them incredible artists and performers and wonder-weavers in their own right. For now, we want to say a big-armed THANK YOU to our community near and far who are really helping to birth this dream of ours!
