This is an extract from an animation made on a residency at the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle Upon Tyne. It is made from the film leader from the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz" (one of the first technicolor films). The film starts with the drab real world in black and white and suddenly converts to colour as Dorothy finds herself in the land of Oz. This film is an attempt to celebrate and look back at that moment in cinematic history. It is also apt today at another juncture in cinematic technology as celluloid becomes obsolete to the pixel. It is animated to a rejected movie soundtrack by Wayne Urquhart, one of the first I have worked on with sound. It was first screened at Tyneside Cinema in December 2011.
