My film blog
During my internship at The Light Surgeons, a multimedia arts collective, I assisted with the research, shooting and editing of a variety of film and multimedia projects including the documentary Schlimazeltov! commissioned by the UK Jewish Film Festival, and LDN24, a media art installation for the Museum of London's Sackler Hall. My role also involved helping to manage the studio and developing the collectives' web-presence.
During my three-month work placement at the Tate I assisted with the production of in-gallery and web-based films including the monthly TateShots program as well as films for television broadcast. Above is an example of one of the films I edited for the Tate Channel.
(idea in progress)
Stand on Embankment bridge and film tourists on boat trips as they wave to the people on dry land.
A film about people that have the urge to push strangers in front of tube trains, or people who have a fear of being pushed.
Both of these films evoke ways in which people attempt to reach out and connect with others, one positive and one negative. And also the crossing of boundaries - waving to someone you don’t know is a risk just like pushing someone in front of a moving train. Both are about trying to reach out and also trying to ‘test’ reality.
And waving goodbye - and the big goodbye of death
These two films could be interweaved into one film or even shown as an installation, where each film runs parallel to each other. hmmm must develop this idea further.
