Today was our busiest day in the schedule with a morning workshop with students from Grace Church High School and an afternoon with the members of the amazing SAGE followed by a large scale event for Members of the Whitney. The day flew by, with some fascinating conversations and really rich experimentation on the film. Thanks to all and everyone who worked with us during these sessions!

So some big big news for Unravel We're overly excited and pleased to announce that we have been invited to the Whitney Museum of American Art this December. Collaborating with local communities; members, seniors, teens and school groups to create a collective portrait in tandem with the major exhibition 'Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016' full of incredible artists and filmmakers. We are humbled and thrilled to be hosted at such a major international institution and greatly looking forward to bringing the Unravel project to New York....

Chris: One of the fantastic things about the Unravel project has always been the lasting relationships we've been able to build with individuals, organisations, families, filmmakers, directors and hosts. It's had a real impact on each of the Unravel members in their practice and created long lasting friendships and working partnerships. So it was wonderful for me to return to the Robert Burns Centre Film and Theatre just short of four years later than my previous workshop : http://unravelfilm.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/saturday-3rd-november-robert-burns.html
This venue really has something special, and one of the only places that came not just with its own 16mm projector but dedicated Projectionist. Comparing these two posts is something special, as you may notice some of the same participants who have grown up a little here and there in the gap between workshops.
A huge thank you to everyone who came down and participated - it was so good to return to Dumfries.

Chris is currently on a residency at The NewBridge Project supported by Northern Film + Media and ran an Unravel workshop in their book shop which is in the middle of Newcastle.
An especially vibrant film was made that spliced detailed and meticulously studied sections using spray paint and hole punches to more energetic scribbles by some of the younger participants who joined us. Thanks to everyone who came down or helped out during the day - it was great fun!
