by David Rimmer — 2003
A hauntingly beautiful film about the world's flight into chaos.
Technique: Rimmer has taken McLaren's camera-less technique to new heights. He paints directly on clear 35mm leader, using odd materials such as household cleaners, varnish, inks and sometimes fish scales and ferns. He feeds the loops through a film editing machine, overlays them with music and records the result with a mini DV camera.
Production : National Film Board of Canada (nfb.ca)
