Blake Williams' "Prototype" Tours 3D Festivals, Seen at TIFF 2017
The 65-minutes long 3D stereoscopic film, a pure spectacle of image and sound, is similar to the work of the Lumière brothers or Thomas Edison; it’s a catch-all for the late 19th and early 20th century non-narrative works that captivated audiences for their sole ability to project everyday life with the illusion of movement. Prototype was shot with two GoPros and a FujiFilm Finepix REAL 3D W3.
Warped Reality Show
Television-shaped frames-within-the-frame divide the screen with various three dimensional arrangements that are completely surrounded by black, negative space. These audio-visual prisms are not laid out in a single row but below, in front of or around each other. Inside these floating “TVs”—shot using an actual Philco relic from the ‘50s—warped images are obscured by feedback and transform into sculptures from a completely different dimension.
