A film by Lizzie Hughes
An Animate Projects commission supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation and National Lottery through Arts Council England
A slow zooming shot of a particularly exuberant fountain was filmed beginning from the far distance and stopping when it reached full frame, before immediately zooming back out again. The resulting footage was divided into just over 3,700 still frames and each of these images digitally manipulated so that the size of the fountain within the frame of the screen remains constant for the duration of the film.
The original footage was shot in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles in France and then edited in Final Cut Pro.
