Gorgeous and mesmerizing circus art film.
Antonio Martinez created this video to serve as a desired childhood memory of the circus, but through the mind of an adult.
Over 800 modern dryplate tintypes, (a photograph taken as a positive on a thin tin plate,) were made from b&w film to produce this experimental stop-motion video of a circus.
The project began in 2005 and was fully completed in early 2010 with the
help of sound designer, Ramah (Malebranche) Jihan, and assistant, Sarah
(Lathrop) Midkiff. The video has been successfully exhibited in over 23
video art and film festivals.
