Slamdance 15 Show Open
Through it's fifteen year history, Slamdance has established a unique reputation for premiering new films by first-time writers and directors working within the creative confines of limited budgets. Taking inspiration from this DIY approach, we designed a Gilliam-esque flying apparatus to serve as a visual metaphor for independent filmmaking. Driven by a raucous soundtrack created in-house, the viewer is taken into the inner chambers of this precarious vessel to get a glimpse of it's machinations, and the fifteen years of work that has gone into Slamdance films. In this handcrafted prologue we see that in this world, much like our own, anything can and will be used to make the film.
