Bolex on a London Rooftop

Bolex on a London Rooftop

In May 2019, I took a 35mm Bolex workshop, held by Kristina Cranfeld at the Royal College of Art. It was my first time playing with the nerve-wrecking and majestic looking Bolex camera.

 
 

I have always wanted to film a dancer, so I asked Ali Ghaddar, a good friend of mine, if I could film a little improvised dance on his rooftop in Brick Lane, in East London, where you have a great view of the city. Given that it was my first time using the camera, I made technical mistakes, but I am pretty proud of the final outcome.
