Four Films

Sandra Powers


Abstract

My films incorporate early film and painterly aesthetics, resulting in surrealistic imagery that is derived from my dreams and imagination. They exist in a theatre setting that is starkly visual, revealing a poetic and sometimes macabre world. I hand?crank my camera and hand?splice my films. Each film has my fingerprints all over it. To express my cinematic ideas further, I paint and optically print the film. Once the film?s structure is all set, I reprocess the film using a variety of digital compositing and effects software. My artistic choices are intuitive, personal and decisive.
