10 years ago I made a film called 'Gallivant' that took as its inspiration the coastline of Great Britain. This September I will make a new film that takes as its inspiration a Channel light vessel called Gallivant. It will travel along side me as I attempt to swim the English Channel as part of a family relay team.

Sounds and images from the original film will invade 'Offshore' as both mnemonic and catalyst, littering it like the flotsam and jetsam that we will be swimming through to get to the other side. I will be assisted in this endeavour by the words of Iain Sinclair and the presence of my daughter Eden.
