My newly finished film! GUN, HAT, GIRL…: http://mbillyou.tumblr.com
Four 16mm films, each one-hundred feet long. Because of the film’s interchangeable elements, their dispersal and reorganization are integral to its reception. Each film may be presented on a humble daylight spool. Intended for small, attentive audiences, the entire series may be shown in many alternate ways: in this set sequence here (my choice); or, it can be shown singly, as one film from the set; it can also be shown as two or three films, etc. A film noir, GUN, HAT, GIRL… plays with the genre’s B-movie aesthetic and its characteristic look toward the past by seamlessly intercutting found footage with original footage shot on location in NYC.
