The Amazons 'Ultraviolet' by Oscar Sansom
The Amazons got all scratched up by Oscar Sansom and lived to tell the tale.
With a performance shot on 16mm, Sansom took to "mutilating the negative" as he puts it. In fact, he has shown terrific delicacy in enhancing the power of the performance with physical marks on the neg.
"I am very focused on process in my work and the idea of really crafting something. It was important to me not to just add animation digitally in this video but to physically scratch and effect the negative. The band has this amazing effortless rock’n roll attitude and sound and I wanted to reflect that through the techniques I used.
"Shot on 16mm to give it a beautiful filmic texture I then went about mutilating the final negative. Bleach, scratching, ink and fire were my weapons of choice, I did everything you are told not to do with a negative and there is something quite enjoyable about that punk style approach to making."
