GARAGE

(Single Screen Film. 6:30, digital, colour, 2015)

Using physical and written material inspired by the intrinsic qualities of an abandoned, ancient garage loft in Southern France and developed over 10 days, the project uses historic representations of film-industry standard aspect ratios to drive a compelling and humorous merging of theatre, text and cinematic technique.

The approach to post production mirrors the core development of the piece, exploring notions of restriction within the editing of the footage and by limiting the source recording for the sound design and music to a 1900’s upright piano; where recordings were taken not only from the piano as an instrument, but as a percussive object as well.

The film was in the official selection for Aesthetica Film Festival 2015
