Heads in the River

Heads in the River

A spectacular event as part of Holmfirth Film Festival presented on Monday 23rd May 2016.

As dusk falls, three giant translucent heads will appear in the river bed. Looking a bit like giant Easter Island Heads, each face will move, blink and come alive - all magically animated by projections.

The piece is participatory - we can take your portrait on the night and add your face to one of the giant heads to see yourself in a new way.

Your face will then begin to speak as we put words in your mouth and animate the mouths to lip-sync to well-known moments from famous films. You will see your face mouth the words of well-known movie characters. You might say “My name is Bond – James Bond’, ‘I want to be alone’, ‘You’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!’, ‘Well, do ya punk?' for instance - what will you find yourself saying?
