LIFF30 Poster: Graham Pilling

LIFF30 Poster: Graham Pilling
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  13/04/2016

Introducing Graham Pilling, the fourth of our Leeds Film Festival poster designers. Graham is a graphic artist who produces bold and compelling design and illustration work under the moniker Army of Cats.“I'm fortunate that my work spans a nice mix of client and personal projects. One month I may be working on branding for a startup, and  the next it might be a record cover or t-shirt art. It allows me to have a nice little toolbox of different styles to dip into and it keeps my work interesting – both for me and hopefully its intended audience! I guess I'm...

What does ten thousand pounds look like?

What does ten thousand pounds look like?
Written by West Yorkshire Playhouse  13/04/2016

Unlimited Theatre’s show Play Dough asks the question: What is money? Did you know you can make it with the power of your imagination? Play Dough, written and directed by Clare Duffy, is the game show where you can play with 10,000 real pound coins.  It’s a playfully interactive show for young people aged 7+ and their families about the value of money.  Hosts Queenie and TooMuch will lead you through a series of high-energy games while telling you their story, and everything they know about how money really works. You can’t take the cash home with you – but if you...

As part of this programme, a new commission, supported by...

Leeds Film Festival Artist: Biserka

Leeds Film Festival Artist: Biserka
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  30/03/2016

Our third artist commissioned to produce one of four Leeds Film Festival posters is Biserka, an embroidery artist from Newcastle, living and working in Leeds.Biserka's work is figurative with strong narrative elements and explores the closeness between the two worlds we all inhabit; the ‘real’ world and that which exists within our own heads. All her pieces are created and sewn freehand, influenced by the stories of classical mythology mixed with a healthy dose of sci-fi and comic culture. The delicacy of Biserka's work contrasts with the subject matter which often celebrates the strange and the melancholic.   This May she will...
