Bionic People - Two day filmmaking workshop / 12 August 2012

Bionic People was the 3rd and final event in the series 'Specimens to Superhumans' run by The Arts Catalyst, with support from Shape and DADAFest and funded by The Wellcome Trust.

A 2 day filmmaking workshop was run by John Williams, who's made a number of short films including the award winning ‘Paraphernalia’, about a child’s complex feelings towards his robotic dialysis machine.
As a filmmaker myself I was asked to review the event for DAO & take part, and what you see above is my video response to the workshops. 
The final two films will be shown as part of a filmnight at DaDaFest on 21st August.
