During the lockdowns of 2020 Chris McAdam and James McLardy worked together to produce the short film  ‘A Frame is not a State of Mind’ based on the sights and sounds within the home. What began as a way to keep in touch, turned into a collaborative working relationship that has resulted in two short films. The second film ‘Summer into Autumn’ was made during the lockdowns of 2021.

Both films explore and question feelings of isolation and anxiety. The first collaboration explored remoteness and the strangeness of the moment. The second, key life moments and their collaborative working relationship.

‘Summer into Autumn’ comprises a series of remotely directed filming trips. Chris surveys the scene from his home, whilst connected to James via a phone mounted on top of a camera. Using this method the pair explore local landmarks that have a significance to Chris.

During December 2021 Chris and James joined Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland for their ‘Creative Coffee Break Conversations: addressing the role of culture in tackling health inequalities’ The resulting conversation explores their process of making collaborative film works during the two lockdowns.
