“To concoct regular voodles destroys an infinite number of fine parallel story telling possibilities, but at the same time it suggests a multitude of distant and totally unexpected re-discoveries”

Toggling between the use of montage and long-take in the depiction of reality, Sam Renseiw recently captured a modern Venus re-shuffling some postcards; Thus, establishing the under-60-seconds-haiku-voodle genre. View the short carabiniers like re-enactment of an almost forgotten filmic intermezzo by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 612, 01'00'' 5.4Mb, Quicktime/mov - other versions at

Today's Bonus Lumiere Video features a surprising frontal animal parade in urban setting (Lum # 129 " duck passage", 00'23'', 2MB, Quicktime/mov)

This is really inventive. 60 seconds is such a nice length for virtual video--and here you make this short length into a really full piece.

thank you!
actually, the serendipituous presence of the postcards reminded me of a famous scene in Godard's "les carabiniers" was easy to re-enact some of that. at the same time, it turned out quite nice, despite the sloppy framing.

nb: thanks for the "miniminute festival" tip.
i just posted an application with a compilation... all the soundtracks are from gurdonark /NSI.

Fabulous. And Godard, yes.

There was once a flea-pit cinema I used to go to a lot in London that would have all-nighters, which often featured Godard and Warhol and Buñuel. Of course, we were always stoned or drunk whilst viewing and always enraptured, and more often than not very very happy. Those were the days.

n.b. uzw--

I sent something in to that festival, too, though my work is much less fun than yours. We'll see what we'll see about whether we "get in". :)
