Exploded Film #2

‘Exploded Film’ offers an exploded view on film. The installation consists of a rollercoaster shaped track that represents a typical storyplot of an action movie. A camera follows this track up and down, producing a film that is simultaneously projected in the installation set up. Well-chosen key moments of the storyplot are placed on the track, and when the camera passes them, short film sequences are injected into the projected film.

In this installation the spectator gains insight in the invisible construction of filmmaking. This reminds of the techniques of pre-cinematic animation devices like the zoetrope and phenakistoscope. ‘Exploded film’ harks back to these techniques, and combines it with new technologies.
