At one of the most recent photoshoots for A Stitch in Time Volume 2, one of Charlie’s friends at university who is also studying film, kindly offered to video the day and then turn it into a short film for us. Scott Willis, our wonderful film maker, travelled down from Edinburgh on the day of shooting in March and spent the day quietly filming us. He has since spent many hours editing the footage into a marvellous visual treat of the day. I do hope you enjoy it.

The two models appearing in the film are the wonderful Theodora Burrow and fabulous Lola Valentine. The hair and make up artist is Catherine-Elizabeth who can do the most amazing hair I’ve ever seen. Others present are myself, Charlie, Gavin and Inny.
I want to take the opportunity to thank Scott once again for a fantastic production. He’s only just finishing his first year – he is going to be so good!
I’m off to watch it once again, so
