Getijden

Betacam, 12 minutes, colour, 2008
film: Karel Doing
music: Andrea Emonds & Pierre Bastien



Humans have long identified their own bodies with animals, plants or objects, and even imagined the possibilty of transformation. This film shows eight possible transformations performed by one actress. Each of the parts has its own specific colour spectrum and rhythm, that is combined with especially composed music by sound artist Pierre Bastien and voice artist Andrea Emonds.

For this visual essay, I used a variety of film formats and stylistic approaches. The camerawork is intuitive, the editing musical and associative.
