Celebrating 9 years collaboration!

Short films by Daniel & Clara on vimeo

Today we celebrate 9 years of collaboration!!!

On this day nine years ago we met and became instant friends and collaborators on a journey of creative exploration that continues to this day! We feel very lucky to have been able to spend the last 3285 days dedicated to making art! Life is strange, mysterious and at times totally confounding but finding another like-minded human being to collaborate with makes everything seem possible!

Thank you to all our friends and collaborators for being a part of this journey so far, and thank you to everyone who follows and supports our work and thank you too to all those uncompromising artists out there who inspire us every single day!!

To mark this occasion we are releasing 18 of our short films online to watch for free.

Love,
Daniel & Clara

We’d like now to introduce you all to our new project Moving Image Artists.

We will continue to publish articles and interviews through our website where you can also find an archive of previous Film Panic writings: www.movingimageartists.co.uk

Studio Diary Series: Land | Sea | Sky at Hambre Forum

Studio Diary Series Land Sea Sky (2018, Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais)

The wonderful people at hambre have release a selection of films from our Studio Diary Series on the Hambre Forum. This selection focuses on the Studio Diaries which could be considered as landscape films. To accompany the films we have written a short introductory text about our interest in filming nature, landscapes and the weather. Watch and read here.

As a part of this invitation to release our films on Hambre we were asked to recommend another artist’s film to also be featured on the forum, we put forward a short film by Edwin Rostron whose stunning visionary animations were recently featured at the Moving Image Salon, check it out here.

Many thanks to Sebastian Wiedemann!

Love,
Daniel & Clara
