Talking Picture no. 39: Florence Alma Snoad by Daniel Meadows

This week's movie from Daniel Meadows is the 39th of 40. That means next week is the last...Then I suggest a day watching the lot and a trip to the Library of Birmingham to see the work it relates to, and all that surrounds it.

As Daniel posted on Facebook, "If there is one person's story that sums up the meaning of my bus adventure, this is it. Florence Alma Snoad is number 39 of the 40 movies I made to celebrate the acquisition of my archive by the Library of Birmingham. We are nearing the end."



Talking Picture no. 31: The Smoking Room by Daniel Meadows

The latest of Daniel's movie releases. Prestwich Hospital in Manchester and the then new, Clayton Ward. Great narration on this movie, a personal favourite!

On Thursday I will realise a book to accompany this movie, Clayton Ward 1978. This book is the final title in Daniel's Eight Stories series, which we've worked on over the past year.

The Daniel Meadows archive is at the Library of Birmingham,  ref. MS 2765

This Thursday I will be releasing the fourth book in the series of eight stories by Daniel Meadows Weldone Boiler Fluers 1976-1977. These eight are from the larger series of 40 that Daniel is releasing weekly until summer, to mark the 40th anniversary of the Free Photographic Omnibus; each a small part of his archive, held at the Library of Birmingham.

Talking Picture no. 23: Stanley Replies — Daniel Meadows

This week's release from Daniel Meadows and Stanley Graham is proof of the value of engagement and collaboration. Stanley's home made movie. Excellent. If you're new to Daniel's work, please look at his Photobus website, and in particular, the digital storytelling section.

The Daniel Meadows Archive is at the Library of Birmingham, catalogue no: MS 2765.

Talking Picture no. 21: Stanley Graham — Daniel Meadows

Stanley Graham and his engine, ideas for a 'well balanced life' and avoiding stress. Excellent, my favourite so far from the Daniel Meadows Archive (Library of Birmingham, catalogue no: MS 2765). I'm publishing this Thursday Bancroft Shed Engine House 1976, by Daniel Meadows. More of Stanley and the engine then...
