Dry-transfer lettering and patterns, along with stickers, paint, and marker, were applied to clear 16mm film, extending into the optical audio area of the picture. The footage was transferred three ways and edited into musical arrangements with each frame of a picture accompanied by the sound it produced in the projector. The result is a synchronous collage of visual music and its lo-fi audio soundtrack.
To get even MORE excited, we're watching this interview with José Cardoso - filmmaker of Iwianch and winner of the Tom Berman Award for Most Promising Filmmaker at the 59th AAFF!
