Video piece number 42. Made in 2013 instead of doing the housework in Inverness. For non commercial purposes only. This short film came about one afternoon while Sarah was at work and I was bored. I got the Foldable Me version ( foldable.me )of her mad a while before and had always intended on using it as a prop in something or other. The story was based on an old comic strip I saw years ago starring John Cleese where a guy has sex with a barbie doll. It was shot on a Canon 5D Mk 2 and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5. Took about 2 hours to shoot and cut. The music used is by Nine Inch Nails from the Ghosts I-IV album and is part of my ongoing project to create a short film for each of the 36 Ghost tracks.
It is named after track 1 off David Bowie's Heathen album (and cos it was made on a Sunday.)
Kubrick refenrence: None, nada, zip.
Video piece number 50. Made in 2013 instead of doing the housework in Inverness. For non commercial purposes only. This film was made for the Vimeo weekend challenge "illustrate a story." Originally this project had a straightforward narrative about various artists, authors, thinkers that have recently inspired me. I recorded a short voice over in which I talked about people like Freud, Neitzsche, Carl Sagan and William S Burroughs and how they influenced my work and my life in general. With the audio laid down, I started shooting the visuals. After a few days of shooting, realised the project was evolving into something I hadn't considered. And so, in true Burroughs style, I cut up the voiceover into chunks of about 3 or 4 words then completely rearranged it into a very surreal ramble. I then re-recorded the new version and added the visuals. The music is by Jonsi and Alex and is licence free for non commercial purposes.
Video piece number 47. Made in 2013 instead of doing the housework in Inverness. For non commercial purposes only. This short film contains the following work by Thomas Hogben...FlyThru-Cataluna-V002 ( vimeo.com/67554015 ), SH004-5-6-Test-Look ( vimeo.com/67292425 ), Light-Sight-Forest-003 ( vimeo.com/57795543 ) It was shot in one hour outside Inverness near Loch Ashie and Loch Duntelchaig using a Canon 5D Mk2 and edited on Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5. I made up the story in my head as I drove around the locations and got the camera out as I came upon places that interested me. I wrote the voice over in my head on the way home. The music is by Sigur Ros and Jonsi and Alex. #THISISBRITAIN
