Walking in Footage

Walking in Footage is an experimental short film working with found footage. the film is produced by using an old umatic engine and its specific methods of film editing. in addition, a video mixer was used to produce and shape mixes coming from visual and sound material disturbances specific for film material. in the course of digital editing all color was extracted to be able to even more focus on humans sitting, walking, running through media noise, feeling disturbed by turbulences.


Walking in Footage is a film on the search for happiness in the information age where much too often slowliness and simplicity find themselves in a defensive position in regard to the consequences of data overflow and where much too often it is difficult to create silence within an abundance of data.
