Angel Olsen – Sweet Dreams (Official Video)

Posted by on Jan 15, 2013 in Inspiration, videos | No Comments

A Facebook friend  brought this lady Angel Olsen to my attention. I’m posting this for her use of 16mm film to create her videos. She has double and triple exposed her film. That’s no easy task. I hope you enjoy. Did I mention she has an old soul voice that I can’t place, she’s unique and beautiful. I wish her the bests.

“A transatlantic collaboration between four friends.

Two songs were written and recorded in Chicago and then sent to Vienna.

There they were translated into a film score.”

A transatlantic epistolary exchange.

A song transformed into a film score and mailed across the Atlantic Ocean.
The score interpreted using an intuitive approach and a single roll of 16mm color negative film. The film exposed, rewound and re-exposed many times, developed and sent back across the Atlantic. These images were collected with the foreknowledge that the film would be extensively manipulated in the darkroom. An archaic homemade contact printer was used to create the final look and that film was hand-processed, and rinsed and repeated all in the same room in which the score began.

Time passing. The feeling of time. Collapsing space. Collapsing time. Collapsing time and space.

*16mm print available and recommended for screening purposes. This is the digital version.

“Sweet Dreams” available on Angel Olsen’s “Sleepwalker” 7 inch from Sixteen Tambourines

A song transformed into a film score and mailed across the Atlantic Ocean.
The score interpreted using a single roll of tri-x 16mm film. The film exposed, rewound and re-exposed many times, developed and sent back across the Atlantic. A response was filmed and the two spliced together.
