An Exquisite Corpse #1
7 minutes | Experimental Film | 2023
Director - Tony Gee, Chris Cosentino, Kata Szaniszlo, Radu M, Rory Wolstenholme
An experimental film, made in the manner of the 'Exquisite Corpse' game played by the surrealists in their heyday. It is mostly known in the form of a drawing or a written story. This has been adapted to the realm of filmmaking.
In this case, a filmmaker is given a few seconds of footage from the end of the previous person's film and has to continue the story in their own way. Each filmmaker gets an end film fragment and so on until all filmmakers have had their turn. In this case, 5 filmmakers made this creation which was stitched together after all filmmakers had completed their turn. The process is done in utter secrecy, but an anonymous message from one maker to the next is allowed as a wildcard that can be used if they are stuck for ideas for their segment.
Exact runtime: 6 minutes 57 seconds
