Future Station at METAL: Final Cut Pro Session and talk from Steve Hawley

If you have always wanted to explore using Final Cut Pro for your video projects, come along to Metal at Edge Hill Station on Wednesday 6th November for their quarterly Future Station meeting when they will be holding an introduction to Final Cut Pro with a presentation by video artist Steve Hawley. All meetings are FREE and open to all.

If you are an artist or work in an organisation involved in arts related activity or you are generally interested in art, Metal’s Future Station meeting is a great opportunity not only to meet other artists and like-minded people but also to learn new skills.

Please feel most welcome to drop by in to the Future Station session on Final Cut Pro to learn something new, useful and practical or just come from 7pm to hear 3 minute wonders from local artists and performers followed by a presentation and discussion with video artist Steve Hawley who will be sharing his work and career with us.

Steve Hawley is an artist who has been working with film and video since 1981, and his work has been shown at video festivals and broadcast worldwide since then. His original preoccupation was with language and image, and in 1995 his experimental documentary on artificial languages was broadcast on Channel 4 TV.

More recently his work has looked at new forms of narrative, in  such works as Love Under Mercury, his first film for the cinema, which won a prize at the Ann Arbor film festival, and Amen ICA Cinema 2002, a palindromic video which won the prize for most original video  at the Vancouver Videopoem festival.

His recent work has explored issues around HD video (Barnum Effect 2007) and Not to Scale, shot on HD in model villages, was shown at last year’s Istanbul Biennale as part of the Sheffield 09 Pavilion.  Currently he is developing DVD based generative narrative works such as Yarn 2010, which use the medium to create an ongoing recombinant narrative.

He is Professor and Head of Art and Media at the Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University.
