in it.- SIFF
Anatomy of the Verebrate Retina
This film is 6th installment of what is being called the Anomalies Cycle of films. This film is also created using hand painted sections of clear 16mm film. and re photographed on a Optical Printer along with some sections of hand manipulated found footage, This time I used custom made dye's that I call Kenville dyes. I am experimenting with doing several layers of exposures onto one another at different speeds. I also created this films sound design. ~ Jon Behrens
