As our 7 day Kes journey ends.
Here is a reminder how the film Kes ends.
I watched this clip.
And an audience of 110 people at the Northern Design Centre at the end of 2017.
And so did many of the people watching.
My Kes adventure started when I was 10 years old.
My ‘Kes’ adventure continued when I saw a young boy wandering through Byker in Newcastle in 2017.
He was carrying a bird of prey.
I wanted to make imagery for Always Wear Red that reminded me of my favourite film.
So I got the best photographer.
And the best falconer.
And the right Kestrel.
And the right Billy Casper model.
Then I went for David Bradley himself.
And he is now my friend.
A real gentleman.
A beautiful, gentle chap that helped me to push my ideas and my little adventure as far as I had dreamed.
Here are the images that we created together.
Always Wear Red’s homage to Kes, 50 years after the film was made:
