Locked-Down at Oddball Gallery (August 2020),h_721,al_c,q_90,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01/composit%20gallery.webp

I am pleased to write that 'Within, without', the short fiction film I made in July 2020, has been selected to be a part of Oddball Gallery's virtual exhibtion, Locked-Down, live between August 10th - October 10th. A still from the film can just be seen on the television screen between Frida Kahlo and Andy Warhol!

The intriguing space they have made online is a bespoke gallery which, as they say, is:

'a virtual exhibition in the form of a text based game. Within this game are images, text, audio and video. You can explore the different rooms of the gallery and read through the displayed artists.

​This exhibition showcases how art has still persisted during a global pandemic, with us all being locked-down at home. It is incredibly important to see how artist have still managed to thrive and keep being creative during the current climate.'

'Midlands Spotlight – Filmmaker Ben Crawford' (August 2020)

The kind folk at Midlands Movies have run a spotlight article on me and the films I have made between June and August 2020. It features Selly Oak's Community Response, Cooperation Birmingham: Solidarity Kitchen and Within, Without.

Midlands Movies is a great resource for the exciting screen-based work that is being made in the region. Their website is available here and the spotlight article can be found here.
