Al Rees
Research Tutor in the Department of Communication Art and Design at the Royal College of Art, Rees has lectured on film studies and artists’ film and video since the early 1970s, and has curated both screenings and exhibitions. His indispensable text ‘A History of Experimental Film and Video’ was published by the BFI in 1999, and not surprisingly, is now in its third reprint. The essays offer a lucid comprehensive account of the development of experimental film and video, pitched against the context of mainstream cinema and modern art production.

Nick Collins
All of Nick Collins’ films since 1984 are concerned with the texture of subjective experience. Although documentary in their use of locations, they evoke an emotional response to places rather than being about them in a dispassionately observed way. This is often achieved through the replication of subjectivity by various devices: swinging or snatching camera movements, jittery focus and an interpolative manner of construction.
