Documentary – Pot Luck

A short documentary about Lindy Martin, a ceramicist and beachcomber from Llansteffan. We follow her beachcombing and making one of her signature teapots. Finally, we chat about her dad who was a famous local photographer in Aberystwyth. The documentary was created while studying at Aberystwyth University for the Documentary Production module in our third year.

Equipment

We filmed using a Nikon D5100 and Nikon D3100 with kit lenses. Aberystwyth University let us borrow a camera slider and a TASCAM audio recorder with a wireless tie-clip microphone to improve production quality.

Reception

The final film received 73% which is a First at University level and was screened at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre. It was also selected as part of The Eye: Ceramic Season exhibition which was shown in the foyer of the Arts Centre in a pod shaped like an eye.
