The original edit "Insipiens" was shocking, hard to watch and disturbing . The second edit turned things on it's head and we had dark humour. This brings us to "Sui Caedere"...
Can you taken something shot with something in mind then change the direction of that film with a few tweaks in the edit? That is what this edit is, showing how with a few adjustments and a big chunk taken out the whole film can take a new meaning, much like the second.
So now there are 3 versions of this film. The sensless violent one, the dark humour, and this one...the tragic one. Almost all the same shots, this one is the shortest edit.
Check out my blog post for more info on this F3 shoot and the thining behind the pieces.
Making the greatest drink on Earth with some aptly named Bloom gin and glass set given to me as a present by the lovely Gert Kracht.
Test film using the super slow motion feature of the Sony FS100. It takes 3 second clips and turn them into 12 seconds at 60i at just over SD and up rezzes them. I then brought them in as 30p and conformed to 24p giving me effectively 150 FPS.
The camera does do full HD 60 FPS with I have not shot with yet but will in the next couple of days. It will be of a much much higher quality image than this mode. This was done just as a quick bit of fun.
Oh...and yes I did drink it afterwards and yes it was strong and very large and yes I was slightly drunk afterwards!
Although a test need not be throwaway. Hence I put effort into this. It plays on my love of composition, of symmetry and oh of gin!
