  4. A glimpse of fatherhood and the fleetingness of childhood through the moment of rocking a baby to sleep.

    16mm
    Runtime: 2 minutes 30 seconds
    Scenario and Cinematograph by Jacob Dodd
    Hand-Cranked on Bell and Howell Filmo 70DR by Kristy Dodd

    Kodak 7213 Vision 3 200T

    Artist Statement:
    "The Baby in My Arms" is 16mm experimental film that was inspired by the nights of rocking my son to sleep. The two of us would go for walks around our neighborhood at 12am and 5am then return home where I would hold him, sit, and rock. There's a special bond that happens between father and son - a feeling of love and security that exists between us.

    The film was shot with a Bell and Howell Filmo 70DR that was hand-cranked. The hand-cranking process can evoke fleetingness and the passage through the flash frames and jump cuts that can be created. These effects occur by slowing down the crank to a brief stop, then quickly starting the shutter back up. For me, cinema is a window, a portal into a moment, and the framing for the film was chosen to place the viewer at an intimate distance to experience the textures and gestures of this instant. As Christmas and Christmas trees are temporal - so is childhood.
