Film and Video

Since the early 1990s, Ian has completed a variety of short experimental films exploring various themes, including sound visualisation, hand painting, abstraction, animation, video feedback, found footage and collage. He is particularly concerned with fusing his own specially composed electronic music with video and film, and continues to experiment with the synthesis of colour, image and experimental sound.
A selection of films is available to watch on the Ian Helliwell Film Channels. Helliwell vimeo Helliwell youtube
