A few Quotes from public audiences obtained at Oxford City Christmas Light
cultural event, November 23rd 2012),
“I am so touched by what is being expressed and impressed that these artists have found this particular way to share their experiences, thoughts and take on the world. A very touching insight”.
“I was struck by how she [Lucy Skuce] exuded a power greater than Didcot Power
Station! I actually feel quite inspired to make changes in my life after seeing this
film [People and Power: Lucy Skuce]”.
“I feel like I want to start painting again, I loved it. What a simply creative film
[Invisible Paintings: Richard Hunt]”.
“This is such important work. It must be cathartic to express certain emotions and experiences through film. I am very impressed with the creativity and powerful messages”.
“Completely different. It just goes to show how creative people can be if given the
chance. I wouldn’t know where to start making a film like that”.
