Another found footage experiment with added anaglyph 3D film effects: exploring living quarters, venturing into the park, and embarking on a train journey. The rapidly alternating compositions test the viewer’s resistance to the dizziness invoked by the rapid sequence of 3D images. The changing depth draws viewers into a fragmented space, which collapses as it crashes into the walls and the sinister angles found inside.

Within the frantic imagery of quickly passing landscape, hazy three-dimensional horizontal insets reveal human figures, trees, and the peaceful countryside.

Blake Williams (1985), an American multimedia artist, filmmaker and journalist, is currently working out of Canada, where he is studying for his doctorate in film studies at the University of Toronto. His films have been screened at many prestigious international festivals, including the Cannes IFF. He experiments with anaglyph 3D film methods and some of his resulting works, namely Red Capriccio (2014) and Many a Swan (2011), have been screened at the Jihlava IDFF.
