It is Not Reel (W.I.P)
A film about memory and human autopilot, 'It is Not Reel' is my graduation film that is currently in production. It focuses on a feeling that I believe is quite common, a disconnection with reality and the present that comes when you are easily lost inside your own head and thoughts. It also deals with memory, and how this experience can lead to forgotten conversations or experiences.
The film is made on acetate, where tiny frames of video are printed onto contact sheets using an inkjet printer. As the ink does not set, it melts and contorts, breaking up the images into abstracted globules of colour. It has been a really carthatic film to work on, and I aim to finish it during the summer
