Entry from Billy Weston (film maker / artist's voice) and Sara Burgess (editor) into the 2019 Raw Vision short film competition.

Billy Weston Biography : Billy Weston (b.1963, London) is an artist born and living in South London. Billy suffered a major brain haemorrhage in September 1978 at the age of 14 turning 15, which left him paralysed down his right side. After his accident, he was encouraged to concentrate on his strongest ability, which was Art. Billy's drawings, paintings and ceramic pieces became outlets of energy, and he eventually attended Camberwell College of Art (1989-1992) but remained untouched by the art-school ethos. After drinking and substance abuse for many years not mixing with epilepsy medication and not really helping, Billy decided he had to become tee-total in 2004. Currently Billy works on his artwork reclusively at home, but does draw compulsively when he is out, and has access to an open ceramic studio.

This video is a film personally filmed by Billy Weston one afternoon as he tried to imagine what a fly might think as it buzzed around his art work filled bungalow. The sounds are also created by Billy, he has a keen interest in music and has been recording sounds and thoughts on cassettes since the 80's.
