THE BIRD FEEDERS

by Walter UNGERER
2008 / Mini DV / color / sound / 1S / 13' 48




A woman and a man, both no longer young of age, follow basic routines in their home. Outside at the bidfeeders, birds follow basic routines. As the sun rises and moves across the sky, life passes for all.
The film uses the "stop motion" or "time lapse" technique to record. This creates a very staccato visual effect, which is very apparent in the audio track when the two people are talking. Using this technique only small intermittent bits of a conversation are recorded. Much of the talking is omitted leaving newly constructed sentences and meanings"
