Film: The Wild

This film was made by Franck Deron.  On his blog he says that he filmed it without a lens, using a pinhole through some aluminum foil.  I’m not exactly sure what that means.  I’d be curious to know more about exactly how he set that up.  But I like the results.  It’s a mysterious and moving film.  I watched it with total absorption and the blurry glowing camera work reminds me of old super 8 movie cameras. The director has quite an accomplished list of films he’s made as music videos and promo spots.  They are very well shot and edited.  But I always like a director’s more personal films, made with no other client in mind than his or her own demanding internal artist.  This is just such a film.

I found this on a beautiful web site called The Rumpus.
