ARTSIDE - art festival of site-specific art and interventions

A film commissioned by AND (Abandon Normal Devices) Festival, 2012, "End of the Road" is an elegiac reflection on the contrasting symbolism of the touring caravan: from a gleaming symbol of freedom and leisure borne from a choreographed, automated Japanese-style production line, to an emblem of futile defiance right on the edge of a rapidly eroding Norfolk coastline.

For this short film London Fieldworks accessed the Bailey caravan factory with a camera and a dolly in order to capture the intensity of the factory floor and the seemingly never-ending conveyor of production.

Employing the touring caravan as a speculative vehicle, the film juxtaposes an image of slick, efficient production with that of a deteriorating physical landscape.

For this new commission London Fieldworks have joined forces with the New Zealand based composer and Director of the Lilburn Electroacoustic Music Studios, Dugal McKinnon, to create a fully integrated soundtrack.

Awarded BEST EXPERIMENTAL SHORT by London Short Film Festival 2014.
Duration: 11:27
