The trailer for the Tri-Alogue series of short films by Caryn Cline, Linda Fenstermaker and Reed O'Beirne.
Synopsis: By presenting three filmmakers work simultaneously within a single 16mm frame, Tri-Alogue offers a complexity of perspective that undermines the omniscient cinematic gaze and evokes a deeper relational mystery.
Collaborating to subdivide a 16mm filmframe into thirds, three filmmakers present their separately-shot-segments simultaneously within one spatial plane. From the interplay of these three points of view, emerges a cinematic conversation based on a horizontal compositional logic within the shared frame. This combined connotative-relationship between the subframes evokes a spectacle of fractured spatial and temporal perspective.
Soundtrack for this trailer by Tom Foe (from the 2nd film in the series)
Caryn Cline, Linda Fenstermaker and Reed O'Beirne, a Seattle filmmaking team representing three different generations, collaborate to challenge the notion of single authorship of a film. We are working on a series of “Tri-Alogue” films where we present our separately-shot-segments simultaneously within one spatial plane.
