We are delighted to announce the second of our Creative Awards for Young Artists & Creators which goes to Laurie Cousins and Catrin Harrison.
Laurie’s short film about the River Wye – But She Passed Away – was inspired by the music which accompanies it. Composed by her friend Catrin Harrison, the song has a melancholic feel, which is how she wanted the film to feel too. ‘I wanted to try and capture the atmosphere of the river using footage I collected and animation. My aim was to create a nostalgic piece, reflecting on past times spent by the river and the relaxing atmosphere water gives off, capturing memories of the river and showing it’s beauty – all mixed with clips of animation’, says Laurie.
Laurie who is from Coleford, was home schooled and is now studying on the Art Foundation course at Hereford Collage of Art. Her friend Catrin Harrison, who created the music for the piece, lives in Ross-On-Wye and is beginning a degree in Illustration in London.
