Ian Fielding: Now is an exciting time for filmmakers in general, the advent of sophisticated and realistically priced digital technology means that the field is open for anybody with a story and a scintilla of determination to go ahead and make that flick.
As broadband sizes increase film distribution faces its biggest commercial hurdle since its inception. It also means that if you make a film of any length you can put it out there and it will find an audience whether it’s forty people or forty thousand.
Later this year sees the tentative UK commercial launch of the red camera, the camera they used to shoot the recent Che biopic with. That’s world class imagery becoming more and more accessible to the guy or girl on the street.
When that thing comes out, the old idea of industrial film making being the sole providence of big studios will be blown out of the water forever. In a couple of years you could envision a small troupe of passionate teenagers on minimum wage drubbing up the cash between them to make a story completely viable for the commercial market. With lowering costs you get greater freedom, more room for creativity, I’m not saying that’s all there is to it, you can buy the best guitar in town but you still gotta know what to do with it.
If you’re lucking enough to live in a developed country from Andover or Andalusia making a film could become as common as starting a garage band with your mates. As Marx might say, the means of production are now in the hands of the workers – the revolution starts now.

CR: What was the inspiration for Wilby Park?
IF: I wanted to dissect the grieving process, the principle idea being: how would it be if the private machinations of a person in grief somehow found themselves rendered into the reality of their everyday life.
It’s as if the lead character’s terrifying thoughts and troubles are playing themselves out directly in front of her rather than merely being false worries that pray on the back of her mind.
That idea really emerges through the nature of film itself, where as a novel may tackle this problem through stream of consciousness or myriad other internal devices – film requires you to transfer meaning into pictures and action.
The film’s framing, musical score and screenplay all suggest the filmic universe of film noir, in fact most of the film is shot in bright spaces and glistering sunshine not so much film Noir as film Blanc – terror played out not in the back alleys but in your back garden, terror with a smile on its face.
CR: Did you attend film school?
IF: I attended Digital Arts and Technology at Plymouth University it was an excellent course; it was half an art school and half IT centered. It helped me develop a more aesthetic approach to my work and understand how that may play out in the digital medium.
‘If you want to destroy a man, break the thing he loves.’
