Special thanks goes to Sally Mees for creating the mask and Ceri Rimmer for making the hood.
Y Chwarelwr (The Quarrymen) was shot in the now abandoned Welsh Quarry of Dinorwic on an a wet and stormy day. The film explores the power of a mask and how the body reacts to a new set of circumstances in an unforgiving landscape. While wearing the mask my perception of reality was altered and a sense of claustrophobia was felt. Movement became animalistic and minimal which in turn brought about a new way of responding to the external space that was not bound by predetermined steps or sequences. During the editing I wanted to further the sense of an alternate reality by introducing dream like sequences and psychedelic imagery.
