FEUVA COMMISSIONED FILMS
The launch of the three films
Last year FEUVA Productions commissioned three films of interviews with artists from Film and TV students at Edinburgh College of Art. Our intention was to provide events during the Covid 19 Lockdown period and at the same time support student film-making.
These were, mosaic artist Helen Miles, and the painters, Jock McFadyen and Alexander Moffat.
Each screening was presented on Zoom, and they were introduced by the interviewers of the Artists, then followed a short Q&A session with the film-makers. The evenings were well-attended and a short biography and link to the film-makers and the films are below.
