Dean Chalkley screens The New Faces at the book club in London

iPhone shots from the screening of Dean Chalkley’s latest short film The New Faces at the book club in east London last week. Check out the electric light bulb ceiling. Love it. The 20-minute film played to a packed house and was followed by some rare groove and northern soul moves on the dance floor courtesy of the audience. See previous post for more information and a link to the video online.

Dean Chalkley’s Young Souls premieres in London and online at 125 magazine

Dean Chalkley, known for his portraiture and music photography, aired his debut film Young Souls at The Bethnal Green Workings Men club in London last week. And, if like me, you didn’t get along to the screening, or didn’t know about the film, I urge you to catch it online. It is under 10 mins, running at 9 mins 36s to be precise. I’m going to grab a cup of tea and watch it now…

Click on Young Souls to go to 125 magazine’s site where you can watch it.

If you want to hear it from the photographer follow the links to Dean writing on his blog in a post Young Souls now live to view on 125 magazine. Looks like it was a fun and successful evening.

The film will also be screened alongside an exhibition of photos at The Youth Club Gallery from 22 July – 4 August. However, I can’t find the gallery listed, and can’t see on the PR where it is located, will find out and post details with a pic. Dean also has a show coming up at the Reading Museum The New Faces “depicting a group of young ‘Modernists’ from London” running from 30 July – 4 September.
