Hot House Talks: Russell Weekes

Today we went to one of the CASS Hot House Talks during our lunch hour. We got a chance to hear Russell Weekes talk about some of his work and his experiences whilst working in the industry.

Unfortunately since we arrived a little late I only got a chance to hear about a few of the things Russell has worked on. He started out talking about how he enjoys playing around with different methods and showed us a video he created to showcase different methods of transitioning in video we then got to see how things in that video were then used in a music video.

 

Russell talked briefly on some more humerous works he did.

He went on to talk to us bout his time collaborating with a photographer called Ali Mobasser. Russell and Ali had brought their skills together to create some great photographic images. The first is from a series of other photographs, this one is call “A Wake” and the second is a photographic timeline of the pound coin from the past 100 years.
