“A Way” wins 48 Hour Film Project 2010 Nijmegen

Apr 17, 2010 | Posts, Film, Appearances

I’ve co-directed and shot a film for the 48 Hour Film Project 2010 in the city of Nijmegen. Our film took first prize and then some! It will also be submitted for the finals in Miami, USA in March of 2011.

The movie tells the story of a dramatic last journey of three siblings contained within a flashback. The idea of the 48 hour film project is to write, shoot and edit a film in 48 hours.

It was shot on a Sony EX-1 with a Letus 35mm adapter, using an array of Nikon Prime lenses. The whole production took place within 48 hours. We wrote the script, held rehearsals, shot the scenes, created the music and edited it all together, all while dealing with a few (technical) setbacks. Yet we made it in time.

Sampling into Assimil8or

Today I decided to sample some non-electronic instruments into my Eurorack sampler. A tabla, a cabasa, a wooden flute and some pillbottles.

A critic in time

Today I spent some time selecting poems I wrote in my early 20’s for the website. It feels strange to critique myself and my poetry 20-some years later.

A synth sci-fi short story

I’m not recording. I’ve decided to just let this happen. It’s been going on for a while now. And I think it is probably too late anyway.

Lost in a memory hole

I’m not sure what happened. I got lost in a memory hole tonight. Well, I can reconstruct it, sort of. And it’s not like it hasn’t happened before.

Bob Knutton – It Sates Itself On Doubt

Ventured into darker regions today, tribal modular drums, echoing and distorted thrust me into the gloom. I explain how I recorded the track and what gear I used.

CausaliDox on NTRFRNZ Radioshow

This past week the track There Is Nothing In The World from my CausaliDox album Between The Leaves Lies Eternity opened the excellent NTRFRNZ radio show in Brasil.

sonOnos – Tomorrow

Got lost in the machines today. It was nice. 

CausaliDox – Cohort Death Signal

I wanted to make the Pro-One sound dangerous. Things started building from there. It sounds like an existential threat.

website redesign finished

Over the past 6 weeks I have worked on redesigning my website. It was hard work, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because I am quite happy with the redesign.

CausaliDox – You’ll Know When

The first track in 6 weeks. I have been busy, distracted, agitated, frustrated... Does one instinctively sense the end of things? I wonder. I'd hope I'd know. You'll know when I know. Gear...
