THE SLOMO VIDEO FESTIVAL AND DVD
120 ONE MINUTE SLOW MOTION VIDEOS
SloMo Video is a unique creative collaboration of video artists and filmmakers from around the world. We put out an open call on the internet for submissions in April 2005 and are accepting video works of slow motion, exactly one minute in length, until July 15th. Would you like to submit a video?
THE MINUTE BY MINUTE
Stop and smell the roses! Leap into that k-hole! Rubberneck your own own navel for a spell! Celebrate a savory moment... its the human way! Remember when you were a kid and you could stare at ants crawling around for hours, or just space out and look at the ceiling or the patterns on the floor? SloMo Video is a recreation of that meditative place in the present. It is a video experience that isn't afraid to put a 78 record on at 33 1/3rd and kick back in a beanbag to ponder the mysteries of space and time.
SloMo Video will screech into towns around the world, put on the brakes for a few hours, turn time into taffy, and turn the usual expectations of a video show on its side (and inside out). It will pull the audience through a molasses-tinged warp of catastrophic visual and audio beauty. A DVD of the videos featured in the festival will be also be available.
