Optic Nerve is a video production company founded by me, Colin Still, & based at my home in South London. Though much of the time I work alone, I must acknowledge the important rôle played by my long-term editor Jane Clegg. Our work is mostly concerned with poetry, the visual arts & contemporary music.

The name Optic Nerve refers to a passage in William Blake’s prophetic poem Milton.

There will eventually be a huge number of video clips, sound recordings & photographs on this site, including material which has never or rarely been seen or heard. I hope they will be of interest....
