This is a follow up to my previous commissioned work with Aldeburgh music. Another fantastic project set in a brilliant location, though it was a pretty tricky shoot with it being perhaps one of the brightest days in history! It was shot over the course of a day by myself.
All of the shots were done using the Sony NEX-FS100 with the E18-200mm lens. It was edited in Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the colour grading and a few other effects added using After Effects CS5.5.
A woman, Dora, retreats to a northern island to await the final deluge. Perhaps she is the last human to survive environmental apocalypse, though ghosts keep her company. Among Dora's few possessions is a star-shaped biscuit encased in a silver casket...
Star-shaped Biscuit is inspired by the writings of the French dandy and author extraordinaire Raymond Roussel, whose star-shaped biscuit was acquired in a Paris flea market by Dora Maar, muse to Picasso.
With text and music by the experimental composer, musician and writer David Toop, the performers include some of the finest improvising musicians and is performed in one of Snape Maltings derelict buildings.
Cast: Lore Lixenberg, Elaine Mitchener, Jamie McDermott; Musicians: Simon Allen, Martin Allen, Hélène Breschand, Sylvia Hallett, Jan Hendrickse.
