WIND VANE

by Chris WELSBY
1972 / color / sound / 2S / 8' 00

The location for this film is the western end of Hampstead Heath in London.
Two cameras mounted on tripods with wind vane attachments were positioned
about 50 feet apart along an axis of 45 degrees to the direction of the
wind. Both cameras were free to pan through 360 degrees in the horizontal
plane. There are three continuous 100 foot takes for each screen. The
movements of the two cameras, which were filming simultaneously, were
controlled by the wind strength and direction. The sound was recorded
synchronously with the picture track and consists mainly of wind noise. Each
screen has its own soundtrack when projected.
