Winston is a short film about my cat. When I moved to another flat several month ago there were many things to work on. Painting walls, putting up shelves, unpacking boxes etc.. And the small white guy participates at anytime and anywhere. So I decided to put my camera, not too far away. For Winston the hole flat was a huge playground. Every time when he gets a crazy idea I ran to the Canon and tried to shoot him before he finished. In this way I collected some funny clips over a period of two month. When I sticked the clips together to a little short film, I was really shocked how fast he grows up!
Especially in this movie I tested the technique of lens whacking. It is quite difficult holding the lens in a right way and pulling the focus at the same time. But I think the pictures tell its own tale.
The band No Clear Mind gave their okay to accentuate Winston with the song “Static”.
