Shoot Shoot Shoot: The First Decade curated exhibition which opened at Tate Modern in May 2002 and is still touring.

Shoot Shoot Shoot was an exhibition of British artist filmmaking from the 1960s and 70s, a period in which independent filmmakers began to systematically challenge cinematic convention. It comprised 55 works by 35 artists including Peter Giddal, John Latham, William Raban, Guy Sherwin, Chris Welsby and Lis Rhodes. The research focused on documenting and analysing the importance of the London Film Makers’ Co-operative and the ways in which filmmakers were involved in every aspect of their films as a key conceptual approach. The research revealed that across all the films created, the physical production of film was integral to their form and content.

The exhibition was launched at Tate Modern with a symposium (4th May 2002) and screenings. All works were shown on 16mm with new prints and new internegatives produced for the majority of titles. An extended touring commenced premiering at Tate Modern, 10-11 November 2006 The initial tour over a two year period travelled to 19 cities. Venues included the Brisbane International Film Festival (11-16 July 2004), New York Anthology Film Archives (March 2003), Tokyo Hillside Gallery/Image Forum (April 2004), Frankfurt Deutsches Filmmuseum (September 2002), Basel Kunstalle (November 2002) and Gateshead Baltic (May 2003).

A broadsheet was written by Webber and was distributed at each event. DVD supported by LUX, RE: Voir and Arts Council England was made commercially available in 2006 with a 48 page English\French booklet containing text by Webber.. This project also received funding from the British Council, The British Film Institute and the Esmée Fairburn Foundation. It raised awareness of a generation of pioneering British film artists and in turn contributed to their own international profiles. Reviews include: http://www.lfmc.org/ ,
