Notes from the Field by Dominic Thackray, Official Driver for the Walter Potter Film Project



My 8 year old daughter Belle (third from bottom) and I spent a week on the road with my auld pal Ronni Thomas (second from bottom), producer Joanna Ebenstein and director of photography Robert Carnevale collecting interviews from Potter collectors Errol Fuller (top), Ben Hard (2nd down) and Pat Morris (3rd down) and footage for the forthcoming short documentary about Walter Potter, the eccentric whimsical Victorian taxidermist. It was a lot of fun and, at the time of writing, we are officially very tired now.

Ronni still has a bag of stuff to shoot in the States so please cut him a little slack when it comes to a finished film because not least you know it will be pretty terrific of course. Oh and The Real Tuesday Weld are doing the score too.
