Encounter Short Film Festival Xprocessed Trailer

2

This year's trailer for the Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival was made using a series of cross processed, long exposure shots.

Paul Hill at AProductions Ltd does the trailer every year for the festival and it’s normally animated. But Smith and Milton came up with an image for the look and feel for this year’s festival. It was a long exposure, high colored and contrasted city street photo.

I work at A Productions ltd and instantly knew how we could achieve this new direction…Cross Processing!

So I, and Paul Hill went out armed with two of my 35mm film cameras Lomo LC-A+, Canon A1 and a whole load of film stock donated by the lovely people at Photographique in Bristol. This was in May and June so the right lighting conditions moved all the time depending on the location and position of the setting sun.

As a rough idea, the ideal lighting times lasted for about 30 mins to an hour but changed from 9pm ’til 11pm. It was also necessary to have moving traffic in each shot, so you can imagine how long we had to wait for the right conditions. I took about 8 to 12 shots of each location to get all the traffic and light movement. A lot of the exposures were about two to four seconds long.

It was a little hit and miss, but the end results were great. Considering the time frame this had to be done in and the varying conditions, it was a bit of a tight squeeze.

Paul then took all the locations and figures shot by me and pieced together the main body of the trailer. He also had to get all the clips in from last year’s winning films and tie everything together and make it all work. It was all composited in After Effects.

The Festival will be from the 18th – 23th September in Bristol.

    About two years ago, sandkorn sent me this film for our doubles. She said that she had already exposed this film using the Horizon Perfekt and shot on a sunny day, so the idea was for me to not overexpose the film. The result was so red!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
