ARTHUR PRINCE REVISITED
Almost exactly one year on from the original version, I re-filmed my first Graveyard Ditty (and indeed my first short film) on location in Hampstead Cemetery. The new footage was captured in one long take just a few weeks ago on a glorious spring afternoon - not by webcam this time but by video camera - and was first screened at Burgh House on the evening of my private viewing.
In the spirit of the poem, perhaps I will re-shoot my energetic cemetery run each spring.
