Saint Dymphna - filming in the bluebell woods at Clapham

 Today we set out into the woods at Clapham West Sussex (it's about a five minute drive from us so frequently visited). The bluebells are beautiful at the moment with a haze of blue in the woods, but the sun wasn't out so it was a bit dreary. We are looking at the life of Saint Dymphna and filmed some footage to use in a biographical DVD presentation about her. Here are some screenshots:

Filming for Saint Hildegard of Bingen DVD, Catholic film

 Saint Hildegard of Bingen DVD

Today we went along to Dover Woods, Arundel, West Sussex, with a costume and our cameras and a couple of props, to film original footage to be used in a new production by Mary's Dowry Productions about Saint Hildegard of Bingen.

Saint Hildegard is an interesting Saint. We had a harp which we used in several shots because Hildegard learned the ten stringed psaltery (we didn't have one of those). She is famous for her music compositions.

Hildegard is also famous for her mystical visions, many of which she wrote down and interpreted in her book 'Scivias'. She wrote much, including letters and medicine and science books too.

In our film we look at Hildegard's writings including her love of nature, natural remedies and much more. She loved very much the Lord of Creation. She was a Benedictine abbess.
