Films : End of Restriction

film still: Level crossing: The train that goes past at the level crossing was filmed by me and my brother John in the West Country (my films are always real family affairs). I was disappointed by how short the train was and it didn’t allow me time to mix in all of my London photographs over the scene. So I just looped the passing carriages. I was really chuffed to receive a letter from a train-spotter who saw the film on Channel 4 and said he loved it but was puzzled which railway line had a train with so many carriages!
