This sequence of images from forthcoming feature film "The Ballad of Mary Whyddon" contains various examples of my music, from haunting melodies to dramatic conflict.
The music is from Elizabeth-Jane's film score for Sir Lanval. This evocative score received a nomination for a 2012 Media Innovation Award. Elizabeth-Jane was the only West Country composer to be nominated. (The award went to a fabulous soundscape with narration by David Attenborough)
The images are from the forthcoming feature film, "The Ballad of Mary Whyddon."
Mary Whyddon was shot on her wedding day on October 11th, 1641 in the Dartmoor village of Chagford. Her true story was the inspiration behind the classic novel 'Lorna Doone.'
The brilliant idea of projecting images from Mary's life onto the actual house where she lived and the church where she died was the brainchild of Sara Squire - former ICA Films Manager at the Institute of Contemporary Arts - who now lives in Chagford.
The eight minute short was commissioned by Chagford Film Festival and funded by the National Lottery. Crowds of onlookers attending the outdoor event watched Mary's tragedy unfold, a bright September moon and ragged clouds enhancing the atmosphere as the fatal gunshot echoed across the graveyard.
