I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I can make a film in a day. These quickly realized projects actually keep me excited about longer, more labor intensive films that require frame by frame focus. One day, I would like to have amassed a set of “vacation films” as a way of recalling, but also engaging with place in a way that is not just tourism. I remade the trailer to Alain Resnais’ 1961 trailer for “Last Year at Marienbad” with the two French speaking hooded crows I met while visiting the Belvedere Palace Gardens in Vienna, Austria. Editing helped passed the time on the train as we traveled between Austria and Germany. Shadows stay in the picture.
