A clip first made in 1985, animated in 2005 and reanimated for the Sydney Festival in 2010. The marching beat of the track always inspired the notion of a person being forced to walk, and initially I sketched out the idea of a frightened old lady in some kind of clockwork contraption. That wasn't very practical without a budget (or lady) and with a looming 1985 tour, we settled on myself being marched around by two friends - Garry Bradbury and Pedro through some video treatments. There was also a few paintings of guns and gun sights by my partner at the time. (This version will eventually appear but I need to have some chats first).
In reworking the clip I kept the idea of gun targets, and of a person being made to march, but in this case implied that the person was deriving some unknown pleasure for this process and that it was a via more medical/industrial machine (lights!). The 2005 version hit all these points but (as is usual with just about everything I do) had errors due to being made in a few week - I've fixed most of these in remaking for wide screen. Fortunately for me, a walk cycle is a simple task these days and my man isn't even moving anywhere. That let me play with camera angles.
Here you will see the first of many rabbits to come.
