Current Projects

December 2006
Paul Loseby's debut film: Simple Methods for Superior Turned Pens has now been released and has been selling extremely well. This time we're proving to be a popular choice in the USA with a lot of orders being shipped across "The Pond".
Colin Spall's Bandstand Clock film edit is now well under way and should be released on schedule in the early New Year.

November 2006
Following the hugely successful releases of John Berkeley and Carol Rix's debut films, we're now going really well with Paul Loseby's Superior Pens edit. Paul's film should be ready for release around mid December now.

Last week, we went out on a limb a little and filmed a local craftsman: Colin Spall. No RPT, this time we've chosen to film a grass-roots craftsman at work to prove that very successful projects can be produced by the man in the street ! Colin chose to to demonstrate the making of a bandstand clock. Filmed over the weekend, the outcome was impressive, to say the least. A potential family heirloom, the clock that Colin made would make an enormously impressive wedding present. The film will undergo it's edit as soon as Paul Loseby's is completed, expected release date should be early in the new year.

October 2006
Another busy month, October was kicked off with the filming of John Berkeley's first episode of his thread making series: A Definitive Lesson. Two hard days of work produced a lot of extremely impressive footage, we're certain this film is going to be a hit.

We had an Antipodean visitor who came to stay here at Hunters Lodge: Carol Rix.
Carol was here in UK to promote her first book's release:
Woodturning Tips & Techniques: What Woodturners Want To Know,
and to attend the wedding of one of her son's in Ireland. Her first visit to our shores; Carol reports that she was more than impressed with the hospitality she enjoyed by all of the woodturners she visited during a whistle-stop tour for research towards her next book about various woodturner's techniques.
We even found the time to do a short film while Carol was with us here at Hunters Lodge. Carol chose to make a very delicate spindle turned piece called a Fragrance Flask. Pictures can be seen in the Gallery. Hopefully, the film will be released before Christmas.

Our final filming session of the month saw Leicester turner: Paul Loseby making his debut onto the screen with his title: Simple Methods for Superior Turned Pens
Although a little nervous at first, Paul soon settled-in to the filming techniques. A really good film in prospect, Paul's dialogue comes over very clearly, with a plethora of technical detailed instruction and a fantastic array of projects. Paul's film should be released early in the new year.
