Shot at various locations in Leicestershire on the rare occasions that the sun came out. The film was shot using a Lensbaby Composer with the plastic and zone plate/ pin hole optics. Some of the shots are handheld timelapse sequences shot while walking very very slowly through the woods. The only other "effect" I used was the curves in Magic Bullet Looks to increase the contrast.
LOVE AND LIGHT
music: Sandro Perri · video: Pedro Maia
"Love and Light" video aims to explore the relation between a musician and filmmaker and their personal reflection on memories. From Pedro Maia's super 8 home movies archive, this video results from the work in the dark room using analogue means of light manipulation of the film in attempted to don't allow us to forget the materials. Here are elusive shadows, the delicate materials turning and strobing and shaking as if to emphasize the fragility of the look, the fragility of these family films compacts have come apart at last, and in their dissolution, in the dying moments of their foreclosure and abandonment, these pictures have been left behind.
