Zealous Meetups: Creative Collaborations

Feb 02 2017 19:00 - 22:00

Waterstones, 19-21 Tottenham Court Road, Fitzrovia , W1T 1BJ London


We’re inviting Zealous creatives across all disciplines to join us for a celebration of collaboration and networking.

Award-winning director James Webber, artists Rhiannon Faith and Merlyn Griffiths will make up our guest panel. Together, they collaborated on the short film, Soror (Springhead Film Company, 2014) and will share insights into their collaborative experiences. They'll discuss their processes and top tips in combining their creative ideas with others.

James Webber's first major short, the highly acclaimed Driftwood, has won over 25 international awards, including a prestigious 'Coup de Couer' (Cannes Film Festival) and was long-listed for the BAFTA of 'Best Short Film'. Driftwood was picked up for distribution by Shorts International and was broadcast on Channel 4's, The Shooting Gallery. His follow up drama, Soror featured an impressive cast including double BAFTA winner Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, Red Road). James is currently working on his feature film directing debut, Solitude Country.

Rhiannon Faith is a socially conscious artist, making autobiographical shows resulting in dance theatre with a smutty mouth. Supported by ACE, the 5 star show Scary Shit completed a run at The Pleasance in Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and is now touring the UK. New work (summer 2017), Smack That (a conversation) is supported by ACE, Harlow Playhouse, Barbican and Richmix.

Merlyn Griffiths recently completed an imaginary art degree. He undertook three years of purposeful study, taking on mentors and projects to become a skilled, consistent artist. Merlyn has collaborated on many works, including his film poster design for Soror.

You'll also have the opportunity to network with creative organisations looking for emerging talent. We'll encourage interaction between attendees on the night.

Some free drinks and light refreshments will be available.
