Excess, Black Noise, and Fast Moving Pictures1981

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.1
Seventy seconds of furiously energetic filmmaking in which all of the possible pauses in visual and aural activity have been removed. What is left when all of the fat has been trimmed? Monkeys with diamond studded collars, killer fish and a parade of incongruous images, statements, questions and answers guided to an exciting climax by a storefront dummy who takes over the interviewing chores midway through the film.

This is a rather playful short. It's a kind of "day-in-the-life," "behind-the-scenes" look at a filmmaking crew. The camera gives us just enough information to process who and what is on the screen...then the edit sweeps us away to the next shot. The hectic pace of the editing belies the waiting game that filmmaking usually entails, but the freneticism also gives the viewer a sense of what filmmaking "feels" like to the people behind the camera: there never seems like enough time to do what you really want.
