Met Student at Tribeca!

By Cassio | Categorised in News

We’re very excited to announce that former Met Film School student Egill Kristbjornsson’s film Paper will screen at Tribeca Film Festival, which kicks off on April 20th.

Paper is an experimental short film that is designed to explore texture in moving image. The film was inspired by Egill’s desire to try and get digital materials back into a physical form, which can then be manipulated and deconstructed.

The resulting film is a diverse range of looks that derive from the unique production methods used. The film was shot on a JVC HD 250 inside a wallpaper factory in London. After each sequence was edited, each frame was exported as a JPEG photo – there were approximately 3500 frames in total. Each of these frames was then printed onto A3 paper. Some of the images were then manipulated, either by colouring them in by hand, or by crumpling the paper, before each frame was once again scanned back into the computer. These frames were then cropped and lined back up in the final edit. The score that accompanies the film also comprises only of music related to paper, or paper production.

Congratulations to Egill on his selection – if you’re attending Tribeca, make sure you catch Paper, screening as part of the ‘Impressions of Memory’ shorts collection. You can also find out more about Egill via our Meet The Alumniquestionnaire…
