12 life guard stations from marina del ray to santa monica.
each shot for 30 minutes over the course of one day, september 23rd, 2008.
the gallery version would give each view its own HD projection along a wall.
they need to be color corrected and smoothed out a bit as well.
it would be great to show this in iceland, in the middle of winter.

Part 3 in an on going series of films by Stephen Dirkes and Tal Shpantzer. This episode features Juliette Morel and Carlos Vidal. Stop motion animation was shot by Tal on a Canon 5D.
Both of us drew inspiration from French '60's and Japanese '80's New Wave cinema. References abound and "Alphaville" and "Tetsuo" are specific examples.
French concertina and Japanese noise-scape duet within the context of a 1960's bongo led orchestra. I wanted to develop a "chase" scene tempo throughout to bare out the character's heightened state of paranoia and tension.
