a short documentary I produced and directed about the Cigar Box Guitar scene in the UK.

You'll probably see a few familiar faces!

Many thanks to everyone involved for your support and kindness.

I am currently producing a 30 minute documentary highlighting the do-it-yourself ethos in the UK. Look for it sometime in 2011!

Nice one, good lady.Can ya do a documentary aboot how ta make a docmentar?y, then it  would be ad infinitum!!.But would certainly create a lot of work. Have I just solved the recession, as far as the film/TV market goes  . Do ah get money or a BAFTA (money, if ah have any say on the matter), Ah'm  aff noo, as ah'm gaun tae make a cupof teas  tea and a tunnocks caramel waifer. But I might change ma mind and have a blue riband. Why is life so complicated? Cheers, hen, Jamie

@ Penfoot - thanks for that! It was indeed played at last year's cigar box fest, and I am currently producing a longer extended version! Stay tuned :)

@ Penfoot - it was played at Boxstock last year so you need to speak to Chickenbobe John about it
