Last updated by Darren on 11 September 2013

Grant Wakefield has completed his films Ancient Skies & Remnants:


"I'm delighted to announce that after over five years of work my high resolution films ANCIENT SKIES & REMNANTS are complete and the official website is now open at: www.ancientskies.info

ANCIENT SKIES is a 25 + 46 min. 'FullDome' immersive 4k resolution planetarium documentary that explores the connection between the Neolithic and the night sky. It features interviews with Dr. Edwin Krupp, Euan Mackie, Prof. George Eogan, Anthony Murphy, Martin Brennan and Prof. Clive Ruggles, with music by Steve Roach, Banco De Gaia and Zhenia Mahdi Nau.

REMNANTS is a 2k resolution, widescreen non-verbal timelapse film that charts the rise and fall of the Neolithic civilisation, featuring a 5.1 surround score by Tangerine Dream member Thorsten Quaeschning.

During production I traveled the length and breadth of the British Isles and Ireland, and was able to capture some unique events, including the first (so far as I know) timelapse sequences of Equinox sunrise at Cairn T and Equinox sunset at the western passageway of Knowth. I was also blessed with beautiful full moons and night skies at Callanish, The Ring of Brodgar, Pentre Ifan, West Kennett and Stonehenge.

ANCIENT SKIES (25 min. version) will go into FullDome theatre distribution shortly. REMNANTS had its world premiere earlier this year at the 'Widescreen Weekend' event in Bradford's superb Pictureville Theatre, and is currently being entered into various film festivals. A screening in my home town of Devizes, in association with the Wiltshire Heritage Museum, will hopefully take place in Oct / Nov, and in a similar time frame at Brighton's Duke of York's cinema.

REMNANTS reviews:

"... a wonderful short directed by Grant Wakefield. Filmed using motion controlled time-lapse photography, REMNANTS captures on film the thousands of complex stone monuments constructed by the Neolithic peoples of Northern Europe from 3800 to 1000 BC. Stunning 2k resolution and extraordinary music provided by Tangerine Dream member Thorsten Quaeschning."

- Bruce Campbell, CINEMA RETRO, Bradford Film Festival - 'Widescreen Weekend' 2013

 

"Through beautiful and hard-earned imagery Wakefield has created a moving inner journey that lets us to feel our connection to our ancient roots and the timeless turning of the earth. I loved it."

- Mark Magidson, producer BARAKA & SAMSARA
