blind light, 1993

blind light
16mm, 8 mins, 1993
My second completed 16mm film, shot in black and white and exploring dreams, the mechanism of film and religious iconography. A relic I don't ever need to look at again, but a great resource for outtake materials used in later works. The first and last time I worked with a performer/actor, and a steep and quick learning curve on how to put a film together on 16mm. The fact that five years later I would call my cinema "The Blinding Light!!" was purely coincidental - I had actually forgotten about the title of this film at the time and was wracking my brains for a good name (it was almost Scratched Cornea!)
