DISCUSSION AT LSFF: FILM WILL EAT ITSELF + bar music featuring Mat Motte, Astrothrone and DJ Luke Morgan Britton (The Line of Best Fit)
18:30 Fri 17 Jan 2014
Join Charlie Lyne, director of upcoming teen movie documentary Beyond Clueless, for a crash course in collage filmmaking — the art of making movies from other movies. Across ninety rip-roaring minutes, you’ll bear witness to some of the brightest, boldest, and most legally dubious films the genre has to offer, and meet a few of the hermitic freaks mad enough to put them together.
See the entirety of Hitchcock’s oeuvre play out across a 36-window split-screen, find out whether Clarissa Explains It All really can explain all there is to know about artificial intelligence, and stare slack-jawed as the esteemed Prelinger film archive transforms before your eyes into a mind-altering CG phantasmagoria.Also screening as part of this event:
SOMEONE DISTORTIONS, Dir. Jaime Pantoja, 3 mins
Someone Distortions was made using OpenOffice.Org’s spreadsheet software. By shading individual cells, you can create 8-bit style images, and by scrolling through spreadsheet it’s possible to create an animation. If you’re very patient. The video was created by Tiger Teeth & Akira Studios (audio) in Pamplona and Dodo Estudio (video) in Madrid. Many thanks to the singers
NOAH, Dir. Ems, 17 mins
In a story that plays out entirely on a teenager’s computer screen, Noah follows its eponymous protagonist as his relationship takes a rapid turn for the worse in this fascinating study of behavior (and romance) in the digital age.
Join us in the bar afterwards for an evening of live music and DJs:
Mat Motte: After the demise of early 00s indie cult outfit Mower, whose album was produced by Blur’s Graham Coxon, singer and guitarist Mat Motte retired from music, but to return re-invented as a solo artist experimenting in lo-fi funk and hip hop. He appears tonight with guitar and drum loops in tow.
Astrothrone: Wayne Adams (Ladyscraper) and Oliver Barretts (Bleeding Heart Narrative) new project, started in early 2013 as a melodic and song based outlet for both parties. Oliver Barretts searing layered vocals with a TV on the Radio-esk feel are combined with a mix of wonky pop stylings and John Carpenter-esk synth noodlings to create a new breed of hazy synthetic pop.
Plus music from DJ Luke Morgan Britton (The Line of Best Fit)
