Programme X

Film by Ed Fornieles, 2012

Programme X on Vimeo

Playing character Jamie Woods. Several weeks of character, plot building and improvised scenes led to both this and the Dreamy Awards.

Developing out of the Park Nights commission, Programme X traces the steps of a number individuals in the form of a semi-fictional network and series of encounters that were documented over the course of the summer of 2012. The construction of characters, embodied and online life, and the end of the world all play their part in this film, whose structure borrows from – and critically engages with – the languages of broadcasting and social networking.
