Ways of editing / disseminating film


I could make two short films, showing one after the other: the house in Basingstoke could be set against sounds that grow in intensity before giving way to the boat in Oxford with gentler sounds. Then I could do the same thing the other way around.


A way of exhibiting/disseminating that mirrors exclusion in capitalism: make a set of rules that require a need for a smartphone to capture a QR code to watch the film.


Another way of exhibiting: create two structures inside an art gallery; one is a house and the other a boat. Inside the structures show video of a house and a boat (the boat in the house and the house in the boat). I looked up dictionary definitions of “investigate” and “explore”:

Investigate: to inquire into to study in order to ascertain facts or information.

Explore: 1. to seek for something or after someone. 2. To examine or investigate something systematically. 3. To travel somewhere in search of discovery. 4. To examine diagnostically. 5. To (seek) experience first hand. 6. To be engaged exploring in any of the above senses. 7. To wander without any particular aim or purpose.



Editing – penultimate scene

Maybe less is more. Maybe instead of layering so much I could borrow from Michael Snow and let the tension build by slowly zooming in on the sofa fabric weave and change the colour every so often. But I don’t know how to do it. Perhaps I don’t need another layer. Perhaps it could be done with keystrokes. Some layering might be nice though. And the flickering could occur towards the end – flashes of Alice’s Uncle’s body tied up under the Christmas tree.

Editing – penultimate scene

Gathering random pieces of footage and montaging them doesn’t seem to work. So I’m wondering what a baseline would be? Which piece of footage could I place on the timeline that I could add stuff to? Could it be a still? I’m looking at the roses painted on my wall. Everything seems to have meaning when I look at it.
