Created while in lockdown one rainy afternoon, inspired by my Granny’s book of poetry ‘Songs of Every Colour’ I decided to start a series of short films over the coming months based around various poems from her book. ‘A Sharper Line’ felt like a good place to start being based on finding inspiration even on a grey afternoon. I wish she was around to hang out with and chat to about anything and everything, but her sense of humour and intellect shines through in her writing and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this series and share it with my Grandad and everyone else.
