HULL HATH NO FURY LIKE A POET SCORNED - BY DEAN WILSON
Film by Dave Lee
Dave: 'I was watching TV one Sunday morning and someone was talking about sound mirrors. I knew there was one somewhere near Kilnsea and it suddenly hit me that Dean reading the right poem into a sound mirror could be a great film. This poem has the right kind of declamatory tone.
I rang Dean and he was in The Whalebone enjoying a Diet Coke. He loved the idea for the film so I picked him up from the pub and we drove to Kilnsea, found the sound mirror (which was across a very muddy field) and we shot the film and returned to Whalebone. From having the idea to getting back to pub was about 3 hours in total.'
Dean: 'It just works. The right poem, the right setting and (for once) I think I performed it well. The black and white really suits Holderness, which has a kind of bleak beauty. The poem has always been a favourite at gigs and now lots of people say this is their favourite film of all the ones we've made.'
