Its night and me, Sherbs, Meta and Moi are all drinking Rum and talking about art and we decide (at er 11 at night or something) to get outside and make a short film.
So we brainstormed, and shot video, acted, wrote, produced music and singing and make up and all sortsa thigns and then got the film finished!
Its a creepy little film that was made in complete collaboration and later versions (edited by others) and other bits and bops hopefully other folks will upload seperately. Feel free to add more to this film if you want guys - its ripe for remixing. Enjoy!)
Myrtle produced a beautiful drawing which inspired me to do some work on this - and hey Myrtle im on facebook give me a holla! X
Kinda inspired by the opening scene of wild strawberries http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3n4TxNeaPg and Lizzie Mackies beautiful music.
Perhaps somebody would like to write a piece that could be read over this?
And so it was that I started this most ordinary of days many years ago as a strapping young man (failing to conceal a stomach paunch with tight trouse...
Hey there everyone! This is a video for Metaphorests 'Flying Dream' song that I put together! This is a version for HR for folks to use the artwork etc. Hope you guys like it! Metaphorest has a youtube channel too at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttLyh4LT5K4 with other songs XX
Updated with addition of TengkuBudimans awesome background remixing graphics - as its important to show more metaphorically at least, of what awesome creative shit goes down here!
What else - Well Cat-Cat recommended more shadowing around Joe - which she was totally right about so implemented that. TotallyJamie said the red sun sucked (basically) so heres one more in fitting with the style!
Added a bit more drama vignette etc, anyway hope you like!
"SootyPaws is just the cat next door and he's in love" -
A perverse new character i've created, who'll soon have some new friends hehe! Hope you enjoy - the humour is dark and weird (so if your easily offended avoid) It imagines life - unapolagetically through the eyes of a cat.
For remixing and collab, id love if folks wanted to have a go making a short 15 second theme song for SootyPaws, that i could use as an intro and outtro!
Okay so i was totally inspired by Apocalyptic Love Song, it spoke to me about love transcendent over death and fear. Fears in modern times over uncertain futures torn by war, ever evolving weapons of mass destruction and other well... scary things.
In a way i think this video encapsulates the alternative utopian perspective Wirrow paints in works such as a new earth with my own visual rendition, which while romantic is perhaps darker. (Just an opinion haha!)
I utilised public domain footage from archive.org from Hiroshima medical film and assessment recordings of victims and visually intertwine it (or layer it) over shots of my own, intertwining them all, since after all nothing escapes history hehe.
Hey guys so this is it - the last version (that im doing at least) of Turnip Man.
*Gary Oldman sound improvement.*
In other cool news, a couple of minor/regional fests would love to screen this, so just wondering if its cool to let it get screened obviously it would be CLARLY credited as a hitrecord collaborative production!
Just would be awesome to get this in front of a theatre audience! X
Hope you enjoy guys!
