London-based collective Bastard Assignments were with us this week filming in the Commons TV Studio. This is part of a new project we’re beginning to develop, bringing in performers to make films that use the studio as a resource, trying to do more than is normally possible with concert documentation. Today we filmed two pieces – Josh Spear’s Extended Play and Edward Henderson’s Blow/Suck – and we’ll post them once they’ve been edited. Great to use the green screen, and we’re looking forward to seeing what Josh drops in to the final film. There are some photos below.
