I just released a short art film I’ve been working on for a while. Watch it here:

I wanted to document something monotonous in a beautiful way. Central composition, flowing movement, subtle colour in a stark environment. The whole thing is set to an ambient drone piece by Mitch Welling, matching the bleak kind of beauty in the footage.

The image flickers between focused and blurred, digital and analogue, consistent colour and black and white glitches - but the actions and background remain constant.

This was filmed on multiple cameras and then relayed and filmed again multiple times. Made using 2 DSLRs, an SVHS reporter camera, a CRT monitor and an incompatible VCR player, the film mixes layers of screens and different distortions to make something fragmented within a whole.
