Occurrence Of Birds is the second film to be made as part of our 5 X 5 / 7 project. This project involves us making five films with five people over seven days. In this film we set out to discover illustrator Matt Sewell’s interest and love of birds and why he draws them. The moving image is constructed entirely from still images taken in “bursts” creating an effect that evokes early film qualities. The soundtrack is created from a recording of Matt’s vinyl collection of bird sounds and an interview. The finished film is the result of 14 hours continuous work from inception to completion.
