MorMor 'Outside' by Duncan Loudon
It's hard being a clown in Duncan Loudon's video for Canadian artist MorMor.
As with his acclaimed videos for Flohio, Loudon embraces lo-fi camera trickery to create a world around MorMor. The loss of innocence, and the level of isolation and brutality in the modern world is expressed through old school techniques that the director makes fresh.
It was shot on 16mm and 35mm, and the film scanned at Electric Theatre Collective. “It was so cool to do all the post, including film scanning in one place," says producer India Lee. "It felt like the old school way! Normally when you send your film off that's that and you can't relook at it or rescan it due to the usual time and cost issues.. but at Electric this isn't the case and you have full control over your project. Love it.”
Colourist Luke Morrison adds: “The whole purpose of investing in a scanner was to allow us to support directors shooting on film, and also enable us to have control of the images we are working on and enables us to handle tight turn arounds and deadlines for our clients. It was fantastic to partner with Duncan and the team at Somesuch.”
