David Valentine is a filmmaker that explores and experiments with modern technologies, both developing and outdated, to find new ways of applying them to the content and meaning of film. Credited as one of the people to have advanced video sniffing to an art form and social tool, his experiments with CCTV have been exhibited and screened around the world, the most well known of which is shopping mall free-running short film The Duellists winner of the Audience 3rd Prize at the sidewalkCINEMA Festival and short-listed for the Big Issue Film Festival Award. Working with hard-to-reach young people he has produced nationally distributed and award winning short films. He is also one of the founding members of MediaShed, a collective of artists interested in repurposing technology and the first centre for free-media in the East of England. Currently David is developing a large scale CCTV musical set across an entire town and a science-fiction stereoscopic 3D short. He also continues to work as a freelance filmmaker and video technologies journalist.
