In 2002 Picture This developed Commotion. A programme of screenings of artists’ film and video works which took place at Arnolfini, Bristol. Two of the programmes were developed by Arnolfini curators, whilst Blick was a touring screening co-ordinated by Moderna Museet and NIFCA. Commotion also presented the outcome of a period of work in Bristol by artist Miranda July.

Miranda July set an assignment for Bristol in advance of her visit as part of her Learning To Love You More project. Film-makers Tom Stubbs and Lucy Bailey worked with The Cube, UWE, Art & Power, Arnolfini Saturday Club and Speedwell school to produce 40 5-second films that depicted the moment after a crime using source material from local newspapers. The event combined a presentation by July on her work with the screening of the groups' projects.
