Friday May the 4th saw the opening of the excellent @StarWarsLeeds exhibition at FullCircle Gallery off Kirkstall Road, Leeds. Organised and curated by TheHangGang and Leeds Alternative Comics, it brought together a range of contemporary artists’ designs and creations unified by the Star Wars universe, and a collection of vintage toys.

Back in 2008 I shot a panorama of Barry aka TheHangGang’s toy room, and gawped at the selection of carded Star Wars figures he had displayed next to his vinyl toys. Fast forward a shade more than four years and his collection is bigger, better and badder than ever. As a kid, I had a decent collection of Star Wars figurines, and the imagination to transport them and I to wherever I wanted to be, but they were loved, used and abused rather than left box-fresh. So seeing a the range of pristine figures, and the accompanying vehicles, all displayed perfectly was enough to bring out the inner child in me once again.

Bramsche timelapse: a day in the life of a new café bar

Here’s a standalone timelapse and photo slideshow, capturing the opening day of the new Bramsche Bar in Todmorden on Friday 9th December 2011.

Anti Limited was commissioned to install one of our self-contained, discrete timelapse camera units to capture the whole of the opening day; from the shutters being removed outside the venue, all the way to cleaning and closing up, almost 21 hours later. The video was then edited and placed online, and was used as exclusive launch content for the bar’s social media strategy. It provided an exciting, cost-effective and engaging piece of content for the audience, whilst demonstrating exactly how the space can be used at different times of the day.

After several years lying vacant, a new team has carefully refurbished and renovated this property, designing and fitting it out with care and passion. The fare concentrates on the best of local food and drink, but with a wider European bar and café influence as well. When you consider the well-stocked jukebox, a great selection of cakes, a small but perfectly formed menu, and some seriously good coffee, it’s a perfect daytime destination.  Add a great range of ales from Lancashire and Yorkshire, and an equally solid range of continental beers alongside a good cocktail list, and you’ve got an essential new addition to the Upper Calder Valley’s social circuit.

All timelapse, stills photography and editing by Anti Limited. Music credit: Minotaur Shock – Ocean Swell, courtesy of Melodic Records.

DJ Greg Wilson’s ‘Reels of Steel’ at Band on the Wall, Oct 2011

I’ve recently been working with the seminal Mancunian music venue Band on the Wall, helping them to showcase the unique venue and their facilities.

When I started this project I was particularly keen to capture one legendary North West DJ, Greg Wilson, in action as I’d originally shot him back in 2008 at the Electrospective event in Islington Mill. Ever since then I wanted to catch him in full effect, with his trusty Revox reel-to-reel tapes onstage.

I’d seen Greg back in April for the first outing of his new ‘Reels of Steel’ project, which he’s since taken on tour, so his recent return to Band on the Wall for Dan Soulsmith’s ‘Stretch Disco’ night gave me the perfect opportunity to snap him as he played to a buzzing crowd. It was a great night, and as you can see, the place was jumping. Check out Greg’s mix from the night on Soundcloud here to immerse yourself in the full experience…
