A rainbow with a reflection. How does that work?

This two-minute film is designed to be a lyrical piece about the spring arriving in West London, filmed entirely on an iPad. Some stills of the Strand on the Green waterfront are seen here.

To accompany the images, Henry Bird created a beautiful acoustic piano track which you can hear if you scroll on down (henrybirdmusic.co.uk), while actor Jack Farrar read the specially-written poem to the images (http://www.castingcallpro.com/uk/actor/profile/jack-farrar). Rowan Laxton recorded the voiceover at Alchemy Post.

Project completed 23 August 2016.
