The film was a challenge to see what could be done with a poet, an idea and a camera - followed by plenty of post-shoot editing. During this time, we also gathered extensive background and research shots - many of which appeared in Vol. 2 of Foxhole magazine.

Following this, we applied for Arts Council England funding to produce a series of 27 poetry films, working with 9 x writers and 9 x film-makers.

In order to meet match-funding requirements for the grant, we applied for support from Coventry City Council small arts grants and Silhouette Press.

We then launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £1000 in order to express support for the project and after exceeding the target (by £50!) built the Disappear Here website and opened the project for applications.
