ARFF // Around International Film Festival

Shot with a hardware modified Sony RX100 IV (with the infrared blocking filter removed) in 250fps 2 second burst mode with a 665nm filter.

Mostly shot from a moving vehicle creating a surreal study or a surreal city all set to one of my favourite pieces of music, Beethoven's 7th Symphony 2nd Movement,

Thanks to James Miller for this special DeLUT which I used as well!

Every now and then I get asked "why?" or "what's the point?" well there isn't "a point" as such. These are my experimentations and I find infrared fascinating. This is creating, without sounding too pretentious, "art". After all what is the point of art? For me it is to fulfil a creative desire in me and give me pleasure (not that sort of pleasure!) This does. It is so different to what I am used to and gets my creative juices flowing. That is "why"!
