"42 ROTATIONS" screening at Pride Film Shorts Awards
Adrian + Shane's award nominated short film "42 ROTATIONS" will be screened at Pride Film Shorts Awards on Sunday 21st June in Pantibar, 7-8 Capel St, Dublin. Admission in FREE.
Filmed at the Astoria (G-A-Y) in London on November 19th 2005 using a Canon IXUS 50 digital camera. It was originally meant to take a photograph but the camera was on the wrong setting and recorded a (one second long) accidental film instead! We then used that second of video footage, repeating the same clip over and over 42 times. The color changes with each repetition. We used the original sound, you don't hear any music, just a loud violent noise.
