Drawing no.1 (Excerpt/Trailer)

Synopsis:
A short experimental documentary featuring 39’ 28’’ of pure Nordic concentration, revealing the silent magic of a conversation that comprehends a complete immersion from its participants.

An immobile camera frames two young women under a meeting. Unaware that they are filmed, the women are shown in deep concentration while they take notes and listen or respond to other, mostly invisible, participants. As viewers of the video we are not invited to participate in the meeting. Neither are we told about its content and remain 'completely outside' of the happening.

The women are shot from a low angle sitting at a table. Faces turned away from the camera we’re nevertheless able to recognize their features. The utmost attentiveness they signal is fascinating and the subtle body language that unfolds in front of us soon captures us. The drama reaches its first peak when they start to interact with an invisible person who is sitting next to the camera… and the women turn their faces towards us…

‘Drawing #1’ is a digitally enhanced video documentary on the issues of observing body and space morphologies. The role of the spectator is given but arguably not the one of the ‘voyeur’. Rather then the hidden and forbidden view, it presents us - not unlike the films of the Lumière Brothers - with a naive cinematic perspective on the phenomena of everyday life, only in this case it’s about the complete immersion of two Bergman-repertory like ‘protagonists’.

A short experimental lunch-break-voodle featuring most certainly the major properties of a(ny) construct: it moves and can be moved. View the actuated motive moving imagery not entirely like it was captured in NYC/USA - 2009.09.23 - and reflect on the sound accompany of bradstanfields 'peacearoundtheworld_click_120bpm.mp3'. Double Click on the frozen frame and you'll understand what it is that sets the boundaries for all movement...

Who's to blame?
Well, we blame 'em all... the weather and rain, politicians and sparrows, cars and economists, boredom and talent ...but most of all we blame her... and Canada!!!
.
A short and partly experimental docu-voodle by moi and bk featuring the search for content and the answer to it all. View what was captured in Oslo, Norway - 2009.10.03 - and try to make sense out of it... yet, lucky are those who do not try... they're the lucky ones... always, and by all means. Just listen to teru's 'hey kid / billy goat stomp' and you'll might get the hint.
