Hey Patrick (and Tess).. I thought that Naomi Uman's REMOVED was a scratched film for many years too. But, she told me a few years ago that she applied (clear?) nail polish to the parts of the images she wanted to keep -- frame by frame - for many months. Then, she gave the film a bleach bath... I guess that's why there are faint images of bodies left on the bleached out portions of the film and cracks and crevices on the other parts of the image.
hope that helps, Warren On Tue, Aug 25, 2015 at 4:08 PM, Patrick Friel <patrick.fr...@att.net> wrote: > Animated scratching: Broken Down Film (Osamu Tezuka, 1985) > > Naomi Uman’s Removed (1999) > > Isidore Isou’s Venom and Eternity (1951) > > But, these and the other suggestions so far, um, only scratch the surface. > > > Patrick F. > > > > > On 8/25/15 3:44 PM, "Carl E Bogner" <crlel...@uwm.edu> wrote: > > > > > > Tess, hi - > > > > I had a colleague in the Film Department, recently transplanted to Ann > Arbor, who wouldn’t let a frame of her film go through the gate unless she > had scratched on it. > > > > I overstate but Naz Dincel’s practice relentlessly involves scratching on > her film -- or, that is to say, involves relentless scratching.
