Artist’s statements

I am a film maker based in the Scottish Borders, with a particular interest in experimental film and artists’ moving image. In my work I am drawn to the idea of challenging traditional notions of sublime beauty in landscape by focussing on its unloved corners. My work is also informed by the notion of presenting traditional narratives through nonrepresentational forms of visual and sonic abstraction – psychologising the image, while challenging traditional viewer perceptions of what story is and might be. The juxtaposition of representing sounds traditionally associated with rural landscapes with vintage synthesizer emulators is of particular interest. At the heart of my work is an ongoing curiosity of what lies beyond the hills, trees and fields of the Borders countryside and I am inspired by the idea that exciting things can be discovered at the end of an overgrown path, beyond a locked gate, or in an abandoned place.

biography

Jason Moyes gained an interest in short film in 2007 after producing no budget DIY music videos for his band, Vacuum Spasm Babies. He has worked in a range of creative roles including radio producer and presenter, music journalist and photographer. He worked on cult music and alternative culture magazine Sun Zoom Spark, has produced content for and had his band played on BBC 6 Music and until recently presented a weekly music show on community radio. His experience working creatively with sound and other media has informed his work and although he has gone beyond producing music videos he still embraces the DIY approach to film making. Jason is a founding member of the Scotland based Moving Image Makers Collective.

Put Down the Remote opened with a preview on Thursday 14 September and ran from Friday 15 – Sunday 17 September, opening 10am – 4pm daily.

Also on Thursday 14 September, MIMC presented Daisies as part of Behind the Curtain, a new Alchemy Film & Arts project that brings a season of films to venues across the Scottish Borders. Behind the Curtain is a celebration of the diversity of cinema, screening documentaries, experimental works, cult, queer, trash and the best work from independent filmmakers from around the world. Daisies is Vēra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema that is perhaps also the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960’s. In the magnificent setting of the Haining House, Chytilová’s avant-garde comedy is sure to delight and stimulate the audience at the beginning of a what will undoubtedly be a memorable YES Arts Festival.

Harriet Warman, programmer of Behind the Curtain said: “I’m thrilled that MIMC have selected such a fantastic film as part of this new season. Behind the Curtain is about creating a warm and welcoming environment in which to see brilliant films that might have been overlooked, celebrating a diversity of identities and filmmaking styles. Daisies, in its riotous experimentation is the perfect MIMC film, representing the radical, experimental and fun spirit of the collective.”
