This video is a visual experiment using footage from the 12minute film ROUGHTIME
ROUGHTIME (2012 - ONGOING) (12 minutes)
RoughTime, a twelve-minute, Butoh dance and animation, an empathetic expression of human struggle, failure and the possibility of hope.
Screening copy available from email@example.com
RoughTime was made as a response to a series of conversations with homeless men, from a diversity of backgrounds, who spoke to me about their experiences of being homeless, as a state of mind rather than a social phenomena.
They understood and agreed to partake in the making of a work about the rise and fall of a single man as a reflection on the rise and fall of human civilization.
ROUGHTIME combines an improvisation with Paris-based, Japanese, Butoh dancer Gyohei Zaitsu, music by composer Trevor Knight and charcoal animation drawings by Trish McAdam.
Shot on RedCam in Ardmore Studios green screen stage with a small but experienced feature film crew, Cinematographer, PJ Dillon, Key Grip, Paul Tsan and edited in Tangerine with motion graphics by Marc Sherwin using After Effects.
