This is a short film done all in one continuous take.
It is, at the moment, the main example of the style of which I am most interested, and which I will continue to work with. Not to mention it's the piece of filmmaking I am most content with thus far.
Patterns and textures study for experimental film class. The beat is 'cbat' by Hudson Mohawke.
