Tackle Photography This Way (Collaboration with Amy Houghton)

2010, 6’ 54”, Stop Motion Animation.

Amy Houghton and I met on Forkbeard’s Summer School and we worked together on this film. We came across a box of second-hand books in which we found an old photography book with a hole drilled right through the middle of it.
This book became the inspiration for our film.

Through experimenting with scratch film and stop motion animation we have started to explore links with intermittent mechanisms; the sewing machine and the claw/registration pin that takes a film through a camera/ projector. We are currently developing this project further.
