HOWWAY THE LASSES. Commissioned by TTTV for a programme on ‘Women in the North East’.
A Waldo-de-Los Rios version of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 had the rhythm of animals trotting along.
THE BOY AND THE CAT – 1974 10 minutes
The first ‘complete’ film I produced, first: shot on Super 8 and re-taken at a later date on 16 mm. Situated in the streets of the seaport in which I live, the characters are based on my own cat and nephew Nigel; and the plot follows their adventures through the snows of Christmas.
THE BOY AND THE SONG – 1976 4 minutes
Brenda Orwin has composed several sound tracks for me. In this one her fine Soprano singing voice is featured singing four well known songs:- ‘Blow the Wind Southerly’, ‘Over the Sea to Sky’, ‘In the deep Mid-Winter’ and ‘Just a Song at Twilight’. Combined with the characters of my nephew and my own cat, the singing hero keeps on courageously against all adversity aided (and abetted) by his stalwart Cat.
