In class today I mentioned the videos of Stan Brakhage, and I thought I would provide a reference for people who don't know his work. What I really like about his films is the fast-moving static in the shots because it creates a kind of tension and chaos in the frames. He creates it without using an overabundance of color or fast cuts. I've been experimenting with this idea in my video by adding an "earthquake" effect to all my shots (I'm not nearly as sophisticated as Brakhage). Here is a video, called "Mothlight."

Mothlight- Stan Brakhage
