Irish Dreams


Having been researching musicals and movements of bodies, I attempt to play with the idea of moving image even more in this experimental piece created under the Transgressive Cinema course. Inspired by Chris Marker’s La Jetée, my girlfriend and I took photos of one another over the course of our trip in Northern Ireland. These photos and video snippets are then assembled in post into short sequences that play with movement, including two musical sequences.

Film Synopsis 

Irish Dreams is assembled from the footage my girlfriend and I have taken during our trip to Northern Ireland. The film is a series of experimentation with photos and videos, where static photos are put together to create movement.
