        Tiny Geographies Part Three: I USED TO FIND EGGS UNDER HEDGES This film is part of the episodic version of Chris Dooks' [near feature-length] Year of Natural Scotland commission "Tiny Geographies" - a project managed by Woodend Barn in Banchory, Aberdeenshire as part of the 'Atomic Doric' season of commissioned works by artists and musicians. The Blu-Ray edition and soundtrack are available from December from www.tinygeographi.es (yes, spelled just like that!). The experimental ethos of the film was to ascertain to what degree could diverse audiovisual footage be gathered from several accessible environments just a few square metres in size. These 'tiny' geographies were made to see if there was any advantage to being unable to scale a 'Munro' or even a small hill - and try and make the best of out limited energy. Using DSLR-sourced montages alongside the latest fangled GoPro camcorder [shooting at high speed], with microphones and hydrophones, Dooks employs the technology as friend of the 'exhausted practitioner' to spy, scope-out and mine the environment without touching it - or as Chris says 'the only thing I like to shoot a deer with, is a Nikon lens.'

          See woodendbarn.com/whats-on/atomic-doric The film premieres Friday 29 November 2013, 7:30pm at Woodend Barn with support from Edinburgh's Drew Wright aka Wounded Knee. Morag McFarclane (69) author of idiosyncratic text 'The Aberdeenshire Field Book of The Exhausted Artist' [Wodebooks 1971] writes in the written programme which accompanies this film: This short trailer previews artist Chris Dooks' [near feature-length] Year of Natural Scotland commission "Tiny Geographies" - a project managed by Woodend Barn in Banchory, Aberdeenshire as part of the 'Atomic Doric' season of commissioned works by artists and musicians. The experimental ethos of the film was to ascertain to what degree could diverse audiovisual footage be gathered from several accessible environments just a few square metres in size. These 'tiny' geographies were made to see if there was any advantage to being unable to scale a 'Munro' or even a small hill - and try and make the best of out limited energy. Using DSLR-sourced montages alongside the latest fangled GoPro camcorder [shooting at high speed], with microphones and hydrophones, Dooks employs the technology as friend of the 'exhausted practitioner' to spy, scope-out and mine the environment without touching it - or as Chris says 'the only thing I like to shoot a deer with, is a Nikon lens.' Inspired by photographer David Liittschwager's 'One Cubic Foot' nature project (see tinyurl.com/onecubic) - the project is about depth over breadth and results in neither a 'disability' project nor a film about the extremes of exploring the wilderness. It's about everyday people and everyday landscapes, but once peered into, there's nothing everyday about either. Over two months, digital montages of the areas were shot to a soundtrack sourced from over forty interviews with the public across national parks, reserves and estates in Aberdeenshire. Questions were asked of willing interviewees to use their answers as musical and regional source material. This large degree of public engagement has resulted in a work resembling something between a kind of sensory documentary and a suite or 'movements' akin to seasonal changes in the environment or a kind of extended overture to a particular (even peculiar) slice of Scotland. A thin sliver of Chris's personal life also makes it into the final cut not just because of the ease of clearing images of people and woodland wanderers, but also because this is not a cold ethnographic study of accents and hills. Five areas were chosen, each a few miles from each other (and one fifty miles further) where the different technologies are part of this beautifully strange world. The film was shot primarily over Aberdeenshire; Glen Tanar Estate near Aboyne, The Linn of Quioch near Braemar, Tomnaverie Stone Circle near Tarland, Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve near Dinnet and St Cyrus National Nature Reserve near Montrose.

            It's one of those that you either get or just don't understand at all. If all you can see is a slow motion picture then look again at the whole picture. Venue the old Kinnaber railway viaduct between Montrose and St Cyrus in Scotland. Nearby Google earth ref. DD10 0AG

                  Scene shot at 1/12sec output 1/32 playback speed. The original idea was to reproduce the diffused action photo in video form. SLOMO achieved using AVISynth with the external Interframe script via VirtualDub. 5 passes at 50% through InterFrame procedure to achieve 1/32 speed. Scene shot at StCyrus near Montrose on the East coast of Scotland.
