“Walk-in” is a new-age term used for a person whose original consciousness left the body due to an unusual, often traumatic event, and was replaced with another consciousness. The film refers to the notion of home in the context of non-physicality, liminal states, concept of soul migration and the subconscious.
Curator: Thanks for your movie, which i found .. first of all, disturbing! Could you give some more background/info to the piece?? I want to be reassured that it’s .. fiction?
Mercer: No, the piece is in no way reality, but I suppose it’s a credit to the work that you even had that doubt, so I am most flattered! So, a bit of context: I’m a high school/secondary school/grammar school student studying “Moving Image Arts” in AS Level at school. This piece came about as a challenge to a peer of mine who has some ambitious gunshot effects, and a bed murder, that they wanted to create in their final film this year, and was told by our teacher that it was unrealistic to try it: he really had no confidence in the guy. As a person who often finds themself explaining techniques to my classmates, I decided to have a crack at the effect myself, to great success; so later on this year I’ll give the student a bit of help perfecting the effect for his own movie.
I had also been working this year on a piece of similar aesthetic which explored the danger of Internet in the home, and how the dangers of constant connectivity through the web are now brushing up very closely to a domestic setting. This 1 second piece, is in a way, a continuation of that theme, in the subversion of the expectation that the home is a place of safety and refuge – Hence the imagery of a homely warm bed juxtaposed with the disturbing shot and death.
Curator: For a 1 second thriller/horror movie, you might have nailed it!
this 1 second movie shows my home, my living room, a vase with tulips on the table
a dead leaf falls off one of the tulips
the picture starts in green and ends in red, from safe to danger (the leaf is all alone, separate from its home tulip)
there is a change of light
it has a dramatic sound
the camera zooms in on the tulips until the leaf falls down, then it zooms out
This 1 second movie is a tribute to a dutch movie, which was almost 3 minutes long, produced in 1966, called Tulips, directed by Wim van der Linden (died in 2001).
