Jack is a camera operator and has produced and directed several short films throughout the South West of England. He changed university to carry on with his knowledge working with camera’s. After finishing university he plans on working with his two brothers at a productions company MawfordArt; a multi-disciplinary practice that incorporates film, photography and illustration. Also will hopefully do some work for Riise Media.
A SERIES OF SILENT FILMS
The films share the codes and conventions of ‘slapstick’ themed films, that is further reinforced by the mimicking of early 20th century camera techniques and effects. I have worked along side with my two brothers Matthew and Harry Mawford. They both have experience with comedy sketches from working in the theatre. From watching a series of Charlie Chaplin I have gathered the film techniques to recreate the ‘slapstick’ comedy.
