V/A - Uberkatze Studio Volume One
"Six of the most popular films from Uberkatze studio circa 1997-2004. The early days of Anti-Naturals cinema presented in a beautiful soft cover book which includes stills from each of the films. The films:\r\nThe Problem Of Anxiety (Timothy Shortell, Music: BRRR) - An excellent static short. Based on a text by Sigmund Freud.\r\nThe Terrible Comet Salt (Timothy Shortell, Music: Idea Fire Company and BRRR, Narration: Darren Harris) - I love all of these films, but I think this is my favourite. Comet Salt consists entirely of still photographs combined with an expressionist story by Paul Scheerbart read by Darren Harris and a pulsing hypnotic score by IFCO and BRRR. Word, image, and sound flow together perfectly, although the photographs are more of an atmospheric illustration of the story, than a dramatic representation. Perfect throughout.\r\nRight Now! (Scott Foust, Music: Tart) - Right Now! was my first film, a ten minute epic.Although it isnt really, in my mind it is the same film as my full length epic, Heres To Love!. This one holds up on its own, though.\r\nUlrich (Timothy Shortell, Music: Graham Lambkin) - One of the Doctors war trilogy. Toy soldiers and cleverly camera manipulated still photos. Disturbing soundtrack.\r\nSoon (Timothy Shortell, Music: BRRR) - A short, short film depicting the Anti-Naturals constant power struggle. Tim is the figure in black. I am in orange.\r\nRouffley (Timothy Shortell and Graham Lambkin, Music: Graham Lambkin) -Lambkin and Shortells short morality tale that has to be seen to be even imagined.\r\nAll Anti-Naturals films deny many elements of modern conventional cinema in order to create new, fresh atmospheres. I expect that when Heres To Love! is finally released in 2007, interest will grow in the whole of Anti-Naturals cinema and this will become a sought after item. Uniqueness is so rare these days. Outstanding object. - Swill Radio. Contributions from members of Shadow Ring, Idea Fire Company, Tart, etc..
