Len Lye, 1935) was the first time Lye had painted directly onto film, and has continued to be one of his most popular films. While a number of people are reported to have previously dabbled with painting directly onto film in the 1910s - including the Italian painter Arnaldo Ginna and German psychologist Hans Lorenz Stoltenberg - these experiments were never preserved, which has cemented Lye's reputation as an innovator in 'direct' filmmaking. Lye experimented with different kinds of paint that would not peel away, but which were transparent enough to produce bright colours when projected. Watch A Colour Box online - BFI Player.

‘Disappearance at Sea’, Tacita Dean, 1996

Shown on a loop, the fourteen-minute film consists of seven lengthy shots captured by a static camera that alternate between close-ups of the rotating lighthouse bulbs and footage looking out to sea. As the film progresses the scene changes from dusk to nightfall, with the colour of the sky shifting through a range of yellows, reds and purples. The soundtrack features the noise of seagulls, waves and the wind, as well as the rhythmic mechanical movements of the lighthouse machinery. The film ends with a shot of lighthouse beams panning the darkened coastline as the seagulls’ cries reach a crescendo. Tricky Women: Women In Animation.

A 15-minute looped and projected video installation by the American artist Matthew Buckingham, well known for his thoughtful and poetic enquiries into historic figures or events.

Mathew Buckingham- The Spirit and The Letter

Here, Buckingham has created a work that is powerfully uncanny, its distinctive ‘un-homely’ sense memorably rendered. Standing in a room in which certain domestic architectural elements have been inverted, a mirror hangs upside down, while a chandelier sprouts from the floor as the viewer looks at the projected image of a room which contains these same elements, albeit in their correct orientation. The theme of reversal is continued by the appearance of a woman traversing the room, not via the floor but across the ceiling. Rosa Barba A Private Tableau YouTube. Rosa BARBA : Somnium (EXCERPT) Rosa Barba (2012) Bait review – one of the defining British films of the decade. Cornish film-maker Mark Jenkin’s breakthrough feature is a thrillingly adventurous labour of love – a richly textured, rough-hewn gem in which form and content are perfectly combined.

Bait review – one of the defining British films of the decade

A refreshingly authentic tale of tensions between locals and tourists in a once-thriving fishing village, it’s an evocative portrait of familiar culture clashes in an area where traditional trades and lifestyles are under threat. Shot with clockwork cameras on grainy 16mm stock, which Jenkin hand-processed in his studio in Newlyn, Bait is both an impassioned paean to Cornwall’s proud past, and a bracingly tragicomic portrait of its troubled present and possible future. Cities of Gold and Mirrors. Cyprien Gaillard. Short Film Series 1975 - 2014, Guy Sherwin (DVD) - LUX.

The series is held together by certain formal considerations: each film is three minutes long, i.e. the length of a roll of 16mm film, all films are b/w and silent, and the order in which they are shown is flexible. Apart from this there is a range of imagery from portraiture to still life to travel. The films operate on the border between movement and stillness, revealing their inner logic through an active engagement in looking. ‘100’ reels of epiphanies, time-lapse studies, ordinary objects and scenes rendered strange and ambiguous.’ Michael O’Pray ‘Sherwin’s hallmark is the direct concentrated image which fully exploits the tonal range of black and white stock.
