Never believe you’ve played your last hand – Jean Marc Calvet at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2011

In Uncategorized on June 27, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I worked on Sheffield Doc/Fest 2011 for CVC Event Services, one of the external AV companies.
Also, I was commissioned by the Doc/Fest to shoot some time-lapse video of their MeetMarket venue (more about this later).
What I didn’t know beforehand is that artist Jean Marc Calvet was going to create a painting in the Showroom Cinema’s café/bar during the festival.
Director / Producer Dominic Allan has made a documentary film about Calvet’s remarkable life and this was one of the big hitters at this year’s festival.

Thanks go to Pixelwitch Pictures (aka Jacqui Bellamy) for spotting the opportunity and for Doc/Fest, Dominic and Jean Marc for allowing us to shoot the process.
Below is a short time-lapse video of Calvet at work. Music by Laurence Alexander.
