Back in July we posted artist Perry Bard's open call to participate in her remake of Vertov's experimental 1929 film, Man With A Movie Camera. Here is the latest on the project:
2008:Man With A Movie Camera: The Participatory Global Remakelaunched at the Urban Screens Festival in Manchester October 11-14.Photos of the launch: www.flickr.com/photos/15718313
@N04/2 minute video extract: www.biggerpictureuk.netWebsite to upload footage http://dziga.perrybard.netThe film plays as a split screen with the original on the left and the 21st century version on the right. Where there are no uploads the right side is black until someone uploads a shot. Multiple submissions for one shot rotate, so no two screenings are alike.
This is a Bigger Picture commission, touring the UK on BBC's Big Screens through 2008.
- Aurora Festival, Norwich UK November 10- Leeds Film Festival UK November 17
