Left of the Border Film 2

Uploaded on Wednesday 17 July 2013


In early 2003 I worked with my oldest and dearest friend David Corbett to produce Left of the Border Film 2. Around this time I was regularly travelling between Stoke-on-Trent and Nottingham and on this journey I would travel through a very distinctive tunnel as I left Stoke. Every time I travelled through it I couldn’t help but notice the lighting and surfaces of the tunnel wall so one day (with someone else in the driving seat) I shot the tunnel lights and surfaces using my own consumer camera. Once I had the footage in post, I began to experiment with manipulating and cropping the footage to create abstract visuals. The light sources and surfaces seemed to take on a life of their own and before long I had the visual part of Left of the border Film 2 complete. I handed the film to David who proceeded to produce an abstract electronic soundtrack in reaction to what he could see. David used Max MSP software to achieve this, essentially creating his own software effects manipulators designed specifically for use with this project.
