“Slit Scan Crash Test” is an experimental / non commercial short film directed and produced by Lucio Arese featuring music composed by Craig Vear.
The film depicts a 3d enginereed offset crash test in super slow motion, using simulated slit scan photography effects to alter spatial and temporal dimension.
The crash sequence is explored and reproduced several times at different camera speeds from many angles, into a refined and delicate photography.
The newtonian beauty of the colliding objects creates a poetry of motion which intersects with the non-linear morphing of slit scan, creating a Daliesque dimension where time and space interacts in abstract, arbitrary ways.
Designed, directed and produced by Lucio Arese.
Music composed by Craig Vear – Track: “Jolene”, from the album “Summerhouses”, Cluster/Mille Plateaux, MPCLU 001, 2010
