In celebration of the 2009 bicentenary of the birth of Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) WAG Screen made a short, filmed dramatisation of his poem The Lady of Shalott to be shown at The Collection, Lincoln. Inspiration for the visual imagery came from the many Pre-Raphaelite paintings that the poem inspired, but most especially the paintings of the artist John William Waterhouse. WAG Screen is a prolific Lincoln-based non-profit-making community group led by graduates Nick Loven and Chris Roberts.
Nick Loven set up a small video company, with graduate Chris Roberts, called Crow’s Eye Productions. Nick loves Lincolnshire heritage and sees it as a successful way to pursue his film-making.
Nick graduated in media production in 2001. He talks frankly about how part-time work, strong family connections and his passion for film-making mean he can survive in the media industry:
