Break up at the Breakfast Table

2010, 5 minutes

Scenes of tim between a couple collapse into one another

Director's concept: I see this as a piece of art rather than a short. Through a process of continual filming, acting and back-projection, I hope to create a work where time and argument are uncertain, leaving interpretation of events to the viewer, although it should be hinted that the conflict has come about from romantic reasons. Short scenes will be filmed then projected onto a backdrop so there will be a few minutes between each section where I will need to move the footage to the projector. Eventually all recorded scenes will be in one back-projection collapsing time like in a dream or incomplete memory, it will create a feeling of uncertainty off how conversation events unfolded. What was said? Did I say this? Should I have said that?
