BRAND NEW TRIATHLON

by Rick RAXLEN
2003 / 16mm / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 8' 30




Using books of how-to photographs on the "sports" of bowling, cricket and tai chi. I made a kind of pre-rotoscope-film-basically. I xeroxed many many photo studies of the correct postures and actions in playing bowling cricket and tai chi.
Some humour is intended ...
I added bits of stencil art and abstract ink drawings as well as obscure bits of text in english borrowed from the book sources.
The music is by a gamelon orchestra from Seattle from a cd titled TRANCE GONG.
I think I used the title track.
