In a forest forgotten, lies a village unseen, the truth only known, by those who have been…
This is our film for Chapter III of Lost Village Festival, an immersive festival experience set in the depths of a Lincolnshire forest. With a team of 5 we captured 7TB of footage over the four days, shooting on Sony FS5 and FS7 cameras and sometimes using a glass prism to create otherworldly blurs and textures.
We wanted to begin the film at night, at odds with the standard structure of festival films, as it seemed to reflect the mysterious nature of the festival and its weird and wonderful characters. Hugo was able to take the two Moderat music tracks (and one Bonobo remix) and blend these into the visuals, adding over 200 layers of sound design to further add to the atmosphere.

Brother Film is a creative production company, founded by brothers.
From making skate films on VHS as kids, Brother has developed into a production company based in Peckham, London. With a small core team and a tight network of world-class directors and crew, we pride ourselves on delivering creative work with good people.
We love seeing a concept through from idea generation to the final file upload, but are equally adept at jumping into a project at any stage.
Peckham is a big part of Brother’s DNA, and we started up a local event series, Peckham Filmmakers, to link up local creatives and hero their work.
Our sister company Brother Music is an award-winning music and sound studio, creating bespoke scores and soundscapes for both Brother’s work and a range of other directors, agencies and production companies.
We’re still enthusiastic skater kids at heart, and want that to bleed through into everything we do.
