Everyone knows someone who struggles physically or mentally. C.R.P.D. is an experimental documentary about the frustrations of a thirty-year-old woman with unspecified issues.
As she spews her bitter ramblings, her image and our sense of time warps. Found footage of a baby, a tiger, and kung fu create a visual contrast to her words and actions, reflecting her physical and emotional discord.
I started by reinterpreting how an image is captured. Slit-scan photography captures sequential fragments of moments in time, which create new forms previously unseen by the naked eye. When the concept of slit-screen photography is applied to digital video it creates a new image and rhythm of motion. One frame of the film represents several moments in time combined into one image, which creates hypnotic visuals to accompany the disorienting dialog.
