New Videos

I finished ten videos yesterday (many of which I've been working on for the last three months) and uploaded on Vimeo. You can take a look at them below but try to see them fullscreen (you can make them fullscreen bu clicking the small button on the lower right). They are in chronological order.

All of this was shot with my Nokia E65. In the first two, (ÎLE DE RÉ & APRIL FLOWER), there was some form of superimposition done on Final Cut. In all the other ones, I exported my footage on Quick Time, limiting the data rate to 32 kbits/sec, which is where the extreme pixellation comes from. I did very little or no editing on these, since what interests me is their randomness... The titles are: horn, mears, forever and a day, residue, theatre, notation, slightly, whirling. All of the videos, except horn, are silent.

I've been updating my My Videos page, you can find all the news about my videos over there.

Shot off my computer screen with E65 while Rossellini's cosmic poem "India" was playing.

I finished six other videos this week. You can see them here.

giveth and taketh away

The sound is from an interview with Jorge Luis Borges in a program called Radioscopie in Radio France. (07/06/1978). You can listen to the full interview here.

Shot on Nokia E65. Both sound and image edited on Quicktime.

I suppose it is influenced by Borges' "The Lottery in Babylon"

None They Say Have I

The best way to see the video is to make it fullscreen.

This is my first video shot on my Nokia E65 and my first video edited on QuickTime. (Fine-tuned on Final Cut Pro.)

The sound is a very random re-editing (on QuickTime) of pieces from "Coming Through The Rye" sung by Jo Stafford. The title, "None They Say Have I", was also taken from the same song. The lyrics go: "Every lassie has her laddie, none they say have I / Yet all the lads they smile at me / When comin' through the rye"

There is a scene in John Ford's "Mogambo", which I saw very recently, where Ava Gardner sings the song. I'm rediscovering Ford these days so the video is undoubtedly influenced by his way of seeing the world.

The fly is from a video on the BBC News website.

And there are some parts I shot off my computer screen when the DVD of Vincente Minelli's "Some Came Running" was running.
