I started getting a little restless again, so I took the camera out and made another stop-motion movie.
This one is called ‘Campfire’ after the Sonic Youth song from The Destroyed Room CD which provided some of the sound effects (the electronic burps and pops). The main piece of music is a song by The Wind-Up Bird, off their Night Falls Split EP called ‘He Waited And Waited, And Now, At Last, In The Stillest Hour Of Night, The Sounds Got Busy Once Again.’ (Pretty much the longest song title ever). The Final music tag was from a song by Atlas Sound called ‘Recent Bedroom’ off of the Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel CD.
The leaves were changing colors outside so I started walking around the yard shooting pictures of the flowers and trees. Eventually, I started wandering out into the neighbor’s yard. I wandered along fences, got barked at by a dog, found a busted up old TV that had been abandoned in an empty lot, and got a lot of strange looks from passers by. It was a great way to spend the afternoon. The movie is entirely composed of still images taken with the Canon 5D. I hope you enjoy it!
