testing 1-2 uh...

This is a 2 second test of some of the 35mm footage I've been creating for my Grain film series. It is exposed without a camera by laying objects such as grain and other strips of film on top of raw stock in the dark then flashing it with light. Erik and I managed to create about a minute of usable material today, a personal record. The test below is very crudely done by just photographing a few of the strips of film then collaging them into a filmstrip file so that they are transformed into a frame by frame movie. It does do well at simulating the work. This is a positive version as I hope the final film to look. I will intercut 5 seconds of black and white with 5 seconds of colour.
