Debra Hyatt Video maker…..

For me film making is all about the story. It can be the story of an experience as in 'Love at first sight' it can be the story of colour and movement as in 'Blue Rope' or it can be the story of an event for example a farm walk or a person or an endeavour. I think it is important to get more over in the film than just record an event. 

I think it is  the way you film something that really helps to tell the story. When I approach a subject that is what I am thinking about. Where will I film them? Where will the camera be? What other images will I need to give an extra insight into this place, person or event? The aim being to get beyond the sum of all the parts. 

I hope you will see from the work on show here that I can produce a range of work. I have a keen interest in the natural world, the arts and people. 

Over the years I have led training sessions and made films with children, young people and teachers  in schools, youth centres and community arts settings in London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow. I have worked in television programme making  and have taught at Further Education and Higher Education level.
