My final video piece for this project.
Exploring my own memories, focusing on a Christmas Day picnic sat atop gravestones.
I created a marionette puppet of myself and faux picnic food to create a staged picnic scene on a grave. I took my grandparents picnic blanket to the Kirk at nightfall to record. This resulted in a desaturated, nightmarish appearance that I thought was fitting the somewhat disturbing nature of the puppet.
I sampled audio from “Plan 9 from outer space” and created a concept poster inspired by 60’s movie posters. While I was making it my dad told me about my great grandfather who owned a cinema and how he used to make the movie posters himself, must be genetic.
