I’m an eye. A digital eye. I, the device, show you a world the way only I can see it. I free myself for today and forever from human immobility.
I’m a mobile device. I approach and pull away from objects. I creep under them. I fall and rise with the falling and rising bodies. This is I, the device, maneuvering in the chaotic movements, recording one movement after another in the most complex combinations.
Freed from the boundaries of time and space, I coordinate any and all points of the universe, wherever I want them to be. My way leads to the creation of a fresh perception of the world. Thus I explain in a new way the world unknown to you.
– Dziga Vertov (Liberties were taken. Several words were changed. The second decade of the 21st century required it.)
On March 26th, 2012 production of iKino-Eye will begin in Hamburg, Germany. From there the crew will travel by rail to Amsterdam where life will be “caught unawares” for several days and then by rail again to Paris, France where we will spend most of our time. The production should take two weeks.
The Means of Production
All sounds and images will be captured on an iPhone 4 and edited “before, during and after shooting.” Completed segments will be uploaded to The Journal and the accompanying facebook page where you will have the opportunity to Like Us.
Still making movies with an iPhone. Currently a 5s. Much nicer. Must remember to upload here.
