The Bedlamites - fell running on film

Posted in Through the Lens by Matt Ward on Tue 12 Apr '11


For those of you who run at night, you will be able to relate to this superb short-film. This is a trailer to The Bedlamites – a 15 minute insight into the low-key world of fell running, and the psyche of one of the sports greatest ever…

The film is currently on release via the film festival circuit around the world and is not up for public viewing as yet.

Ian Holmes and Camille Askins are featured as Shyla and Lukas Lee of Clayhouse Productions unpick the world of the fell runner, and the almost secret world of the night runner – which is described as ‘meditative’.

An excellent, and almost spiritual piece of cinematography, leaving you in no doubt as to why you love the sport and the surroundings of the hills, mountains, trails and fells.
