ANNIE HAMILTON: KITCHEN
ANNIE HAMILTON: MY NEW TATTOOED CHAMELEON
Video created by Sammy Hawker.
I was in a hyper-aware, slightly disorientated post vipassana state the evening of filming this ... I feel a mood that worked its way into the footage. We drunk mezcal, ate pizza and filmed from the back of a snail-pace moving ute. Annie & I wanted the camera to be its own curious character - frenetic and alive, chasing what existed beyond the action of the frame. Though being multi-layered it was important to me the edit was raw and organic. I had filmed the opening (almost full) moon shot from my bedroom window a few days before. At that time of year it passes over the Austinmer escarpment around 5am in the morning. It just felt right for the clip. A lot of the overlays are shots of moving water, or sunlight dancing on water, overlayed on the footage via a reduced opacity.
