Subject 3: Kenneth AngerPosted: January 5, 2016
Kenneth Anger is an underground film maker specializing in surrealist and erotic films. The films often feature abstractions of the body as well as clever editing techniques in order to add further confusion to the shot, such as mirroring images and overlapping images with varying transparencies in order to create something more sinister looking. This is a technique I would like to try within my own video work, especially the use of transparencies. I also like the use of heavy shadows and contrast alongside coloured lighting in order to create moods within the video work. The high contrast combined with the shadows helps to further emphasise the abstractions of the body.
