In this video for ABC Open's project "Day in the life"
ABC Open North Coast producer Catherine Marciniak and contributor Jenny Grinlington follow Rebecca Kinsey as she takes part as a volunteer in a performance artwork. She has put her hand up to coat herself with mud and stand in the same spot for 2 hours in the name of art mixed with politics.

The performance artwork is called "Survivor" and is by Indonesian artist Dadang Christanto. Find out more about the motivation for the work in the video.

In the process of making this video Catherine and Jenny demonstrate 5 great video techniques to show time passing in a video story. To find out more about these techniques visit Catherine's blog
