Handweaving (short film) – back to the beginning

Weave (Banff)
mountain_sign Lost Leaders #1 was created by weaving together thinly cut strips of found footage into other, unrelated pieces, all of it scavenged from a bin at the Film Farm. I’ve been wanting to return to this method for a while, and the Banff residency provided a good opportunity to do so. It relies heavily on juxtaposition, and not a little serendipity. Working with what I had to hand, and the arbitrary contrast between mountain vistas and mundane road signs, I produced a couple of short test pieces, including this one.
