A selection of my pretty lo fi, arty farty films. If not shot on phones and stuff, they are useually thrown together as fast as possible, certainly filmed, edited and uploaded in the same day…

SOGNSVANN

HD Film
This is a film I made at Sognsvann in Oslo. The music comes from “Fish!” on Synesthetic Recordings and the track is called “Goldfish”.
I have been interested in Timelapse filming since seeing Koyanisquatsi in the 80’s, and I have used the technique many times since then, both in my art films and for work.
See the companion film to this film, COLD. Same location, shooting style, totally different time of year.
It was shot on a Panasonic AG-HVX200, which I love. I feel I have only just scratched the surface of what I can do with this camera. Slow motion and timelapse are a doddle, and the colour settings are scary. Wish it had a better on-board mic, but…

THE BEAST

Very Lo fi Film
Film made on my phone, while on holiday in Ebeltoft, Denmark. It depicts the savage and frightening beast that roamed the area at night.

Really… the film is inspired by the recording I made on my H4 recorder one night in Denmark… I heard a rustling and a growl, and ran like hell!!! The recording is elsewhere on this website.
