Made using lengths of black 35mm movie film, with frame lines but no image. The film was attached to a board and shot with a shotgun.
The resulting damage was then repaired and the separate lengths joined together in strict order.
At its simplest it is a pun on the phrase ‘to shoot film’.
My idea was to portray the concept of shooting a film as a physical and literal action. The film can be seen as pure documentation of an act.
The damage done becomes the image and the soundtrack.
