Filmmaker Ian Gamester created this video of moments collected over the course of several years, inspired by artist David Hockney’s photocollages, his famous “Joiners.”
I was always greatly impressed with David Hockney’s joiners. They seemed to capture so much more of the “moment” than conventional photography.
I started playing around with video joiners in 2007, about the same time Photoshop allowed you to layer video clips. They seemed like nice little snatches of time, so I pretty much continued shooting them throughout most of 2007 and 2008 when the mood struck.
To create the scene, Gamester would shoot in the same manner as a stills photocollage: ten seconds of each portion of the scene.
