Donald Campbell mascot in progress

It's a Lake District Knockout

Whilst Nina heads for the Edinburgh International Film Festival for our Bata-ville premiere, the multi-project juggling continues, with emails from Tudors all day for the Sometime Later project, a 1569 ruff order for two (Nina and I's necks are the same size - bizarre?) and a few hours this afternoon with a soft pencil trying to nail some caricatures for our 'It's a Lake District Knockout' event on Sept. 18th.....We're having 4 big mascot heads of local luminaries made so that each competing team has one to support them, and these will remain with Coniston village for them to use in any way they like after our event. So far we're going for Ruskin, Wainright, Beatrix Potter and Donald Campbell....Echoes of our earlier Grizedale pieces that used local celebrities here!
To your right you see my best effort so far - the water speed nut Donald Campbell who until recently remained at the bottom of Lake Coniston after his untimely death during his last record-breaking attempt. He'll be the mascot for the Coniston Sailing Club team - I had to ring the Ruskin Museum today to ask what colour his helmet was.
In real life Campbell had his own 'lucky' mascot called Mr Woppitt, a teddy who in fact was the sole survivor of a number of family 'crashes' until someone realised he was in fact a herald of doom.

P&G's tudor video diary

Hello Sometime ...

We welcome you to our ever growing family of URL's ... ... soon to be a rapidly expanding new part of the Somewhere world. Read our Blogs from WW II and Living with Tudors, hear our video diary and watch our Tudor spycam ... all this and more very soon.

Goodbye Somewhere ....

We're a little bit sad to see you go ....

At the risk of tempting fate, as I type this Dorian is getting ready to put our brand new CMS based site live ... and years of Somewhere's cranky HTML drops behind our seamless new front end ... or at least that's the idea. It's been a painful process but we hope you'll all agree worth it. Many thanks to Dorian for his continuing diligence with us and it!

Ole' square eyes

Just when you think you've given this new site the once over with the database equivalent of a nit comb, you feel strangely compelled to just do one more search in Google for relevant links. One hour later you find yourself knee deep in some obscure webzine from 1997 that has spelled your name wrong...

Film Still

EIFF here we come ...

Next week we are off to the Edinburgh International Film Festival for the world premiere of our feature-length documentary Bata-ville: We are not afraid of the future ... and I have to say somewhere are pretty excited!

We both studied at Edinburgh College of Art, and it's particularly thrilling to be heading back to premiere our very first film at the festival. We're looking forward to seeing some old somewhere friends and going to lots of the festival talks and workshops. I am worried though that we don't so far know where any of the parties are?

10 years with somewhere

This year we are celebrating 10 years of our collaboration ... since our first show together "Somewhere over the TV" ... Somewhere has come along way ... and met a lot of people!

If you are one of the many folk we've worked with over the last 10 years, you should shortly be receiving an invitation to join us at our 10 year birthday party. It's being held (along with a screening of Bata-ville) at the Hackney Empire on September the 9th - if we have lost contact with you or you'd just like more details do send us an email.
