Remix Experiment Motion Picture
“A conceptual ride into The Future, told through the past”
This is a debut motion picture from artist and musician Benjamin Walsh
How does one make an entire film in insolation?...
Using a multiverse of cinema & sound from the last century.
this bizarre new film stands on the shoulders of DADA and Futurism..
Cinema concrète Using a mixture of existing footage and new content.
A monolithic amount of archival footage and recorded sound over three years of painstaking work to select and remaster these works, teleporting them back into our world.
Set in an “Orwellian” Future, this Sci-Fi/Arthouse film explores a world where humanity has almost lost Its ability to dream and imagine. Algorithms have replaced basic tasks.
Obsessed by chasing the dream of synthesizing ourselves we have slowly begun to replicate machine behaviors cognitively. Swiftly trying to reverse this change in a desperate attempt to protect our species,a small portion of humans that can still use their creative brain are protected and studied. Feeding their input back into the machine of greater humankind.
When one of these “designers” goes through a creative lapse of insomnia, Measures of science intervenes, catapulting the protagonist known only as “Number 33” into a deep chemical induced dreamstate hoping to extract the precious ideas. A semi lucid virtual reality, where he searches his own subconscious for inspiration, and explores the history of format itself and the impossible dreams of the past that have captured our wildest imagination throughout time.
Featuring snippets of cinematic history and sound fx, wax cylinder musical rarities, and animations re-purposed and upsampled
a cut and paste world where the cast and sets are rewoven to form an entire movie plot threaded with an on screen debut and brand new musical score by Benjamin Walsh.
