what are you working on and what is your process of creation?
Having worked with film as a surface to glue, tape, paint, burn, scratch, or chemically alter for the better part of a decade, I have recently been experimenting with using film as a layer within a broader approach to creating films. The medium itself has become more of a visual reference, than a vessel for the image.
The result is a unique combination of analogue and digital filmmaking techniques that provide a more hands-on experience for me than with previous work. The tactile nature of film is what drew me to working with it in the first place, so it ‘s quite satisfying to get my fingers in there and play.
The last film I created used a back-lit plate of frosted glass, 35mm clear leader, black ink and cleaning detergent as the ingredients for a real-time capture of the leader creating a forced separation of the two substances. (image #1 and Vimeo link above)

By using a telephoto macro lens on my digital SLR (image #2), I am able to focus at less than 6” away and capture an area of less than 2” across. This perspective provides striking detail of the content below and allows for more subtle detail of the filmstrip and it’s movement through the liquids.

There are no post effects on the footage. Only simple edits, to create a three-minute snapshot of the documented process. The random nature of the resulting image creates an interesting view of natural structure, order and movement.
I am currently experimenting with layering on multiple active planes, as an alternative to combining channels in post. The idea is to create something ‘in camera’, that exists as unaltered as possible from its originally captured state. I find the challenge of this approach to be a source of creativity and ingenuity. It also allows for the opportunity to exhibit the process at a live event, with little more than a live feed and a video projector. (image#3)

To me, this approach is one small part of what seems to be a pattern of slow and simple media emerging from the innards of an arguably over stimulated society. - aAron munson
