Write!
Write Double!

Anna Thew
1982/3
3 mins b/w Super 8, 16mm
double/single screen

Write!<br /> Write Double!

A cut up of, "Why don't you write a story about it, Mary?" is lent some other duration on film.

Like Blurt, this film might get mistakenly described as animated, but the nine words it consists of are just lent some other duration. Block printed and appearing one after the other in a way words aren't used to, Write! works through some of the possibilities of re-organising the rhythmic components of that apparently trifling but loaded question, "Why don't you write a story about it, Mary?" whilst the question is literally cut up out of synch on the sound track.

WRITE DOUBLE !

Super 8, twin screen, colour, 3 mins, 1983.


WRITE DOUBLE! is the more transportable syncopated twin screen Super 8 version with clear variants.
