DEGREES OF LIMITATION

by Scott STARK
1982 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 3' 00

A silent film made completely in about 15 minutes in San Francisco in 1982. With the 16mm Bolex camera mounted on a tripod, I wound the motor a single crank and ran as far as I could before the camera stopped (about 1 second). I returned and wound it 2 cranks and did the same, continuing the process, adding one more crank each time, getting a little farther up the hill each time, and getting a little more winded. The process was repeated until the camera ran out of film.
