These three large-scale, silent film (transferred to DVD) projections use simple camera techniques to explore the pictorial language of film. They unfold slowly, are visually rich, and are made from single, unedited shots. Each film uses a different convention—a slow zoom out, a panning crane with a contra-turning head, and an unmoving camera capturing a simple narrative progression. Filmed in super-35mm in Algonquin Park, Ontario and Toronto, they evoke a range of historical precedents, including the paintings of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Casper David Friedrich, and George Caleb Bingham. They strive to be pictures presented in a time-based form and, as a result, they are fleetingly seductive.
