Glove of Films

GoB 03

On one of the ‘other’ channels of my on-line time frittering I did this. Please feel free to follow The Glove of Bones if you don’t mind inviting this kind of occurrence into your digital file. If nothing else it uses a very nice theme.

Information in relation to work flow.

When I started planning the musical aspect of 50/50 it was under the A4+ brand, as per previous issues. The theme of biography was implicit, the format (five 10 minute songs, each broadly representing a decade of life) was built in, and other intentions of continuity (all the visual content would be monochrome for example) seemed reasonably attainable.

As with all such grand schemes it seemed likely that supplementary materials would emerge so the idea of an epilog sprang to mind (and in fact inspired the ‘segue’ pieces), cutting in existing references into a mash-up, sweeping the floor, exhibiting good recycling practices. At some indeterminate point the ‘Glove of Bones’ phrase gained traction and from that the idea of a filmed piece. This is the outcome.

“The tooth root and aching backbone of the Glove of Bones creative project was an idea for a road movie without a road, a biography without a chronology or subject and an imaginary soundtrack for a film, based around a real movie.”

Almost a film in five equal sections with both structured musical content and more abstract found, soundscapes, atmosphere. Holmes would have a field day with the evidence but like all good conspiracy pedlars, I prefer to protect my sources.

I would like particular to credit the use of the ‘Holcombe Tarot’ by Wayne Burrows. I’m continually impressed by his diversity of creation. The Tarot can be seen in use somewhere around the 25 minute mark.

There are a small number of filmic references which movie geeks will spot. They are cited as points of reference for the various immersions the biographical subject has encountered and soaked up. I do not and would never claim any rights to these reflections.

Goose Fair

20121006-211205.jpg

Today I took the boys to Goose Fair for a few hours. It’s a huge scary cashpit but they are tolerant and reasonable and seem to enjoy the visual/aural/nasal sensory fest as much as I do. I’ll filter the 100+ shots a little later but this is a highly processed HDR shot from the new phone. #Olloclip can just about be gripped with a thumb and the slight vignetting on wide angle cropped after.

Nottingham Castle

Yesterday evening I went to Nottingham Castle for the preview of the Annual Open Exhibition. I have more pictures to post later but this totally over processed image stands on its own. The biggest contribution came from the evening sun. There’s not an app for that yet.

Whitby Grunge

Now back at home after an enjoyable week with the older boys. Washing still in piles and sand still in the car. So rather than tidying up I’m messing with photographs. Before I finish the Whitby pages here are two quite successful images from our last day. The tide on Saturday morning was very low and we could walk a long way out on the south beach.
The image above is a wide angle shot across the slate flats. We found lots of Ammonite fossils and shell fish in the rock pools and the view was impressive.
Below is a view looking in from the south harbour beach into the town. This one has max grunge applied. The HDR gave a ghost across the roof tops on this. There are more Hipstamatic versions going onto the Whitby page later.

Frankie & Benny’s

Yesterday afternoon we took the boys to Frankie & Benny’s for a ‘good behaviour’ treat. Fortunately we got there whilst it was still quiet and the sun was still shining.

Here’s a B/W using Hipstamatic, Blender, Modern Grunge & Snapseed. There are some more over on Hipstamatic Eye Candy.
