Improvisation Study No.1 [2016]

This was a completely improvised scene, filmed in one take with improvised camera movement and mise en scene. It was a study in the development of ensemble improvising cinema using actors and camera. There was no decision making prior to the scene about position of actors or emotional development of the characters.
This film stems from my current research into developing a form of ensemble developed improvising Cinema working directly with actors and camera.

Shot on an iPhone using an 8mm emulator app, this was shot in Black andWhite.
