Walk Film 1

A myopic experimental infusion of audio and video.. Normal editing practice dictates that video follows the audio or that the audio is written after the event to match the pictures. The advent of looped sample based music allows for another approach where both are assembled simultaneously. Here is the first experiment with that idea.

“Old Master” V1.0.2

An experiment with multiple exposures led to an image that resembled a somewhat abstract J.M.W. Turner painting. I was intrigued to see that it was almost impossible to understand the nature of the source material once enough layers are added into the composition - You glimpse vague details, but see nothing of the whole.
