Walker gets up to speed with movies
Following in the footsteps of Bruce Weber (Let's Get Lost), Anton Corbijn (Control) and Sam Taylor-Wood (Nowhere Boy), I hear the latest photographer to move from stills to the film camera is the extravagant Tim Walker. Known for his lavish locations and modern baroque style, Walker is shooting his film debut, a short called The Lost Explorer, based on a novel by Patrick McGrath. The film will star Toby Stephens and Jessica Hynes, right, as well as 14-year-old newcomer Olympia Campbell as an adolescent girl who discovers an otherworldly explorer at the end of her garden.
Walker's film is a new project for producers Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh, the team behind the impressive urban drama Shifty. After the stripped-down realism of that film, this richly imaginative work represents a new challenge for the producing duo: one scene calls for a room filled with hundreds of canaries. »
