Norwegian film director shoots at the airport
completing filming of the Desert Walker project on the salt flats
last Thursday, Per Platou, from Norway, did some filming on Saturday
for an experimental film project that he hopes to eventually submit
to festivals in Europe and elsewhere, such as Rotterdam, Holland;
Oberhausen, Germany; Venice, Italy, and the Sundance Film Festival,
a Eurasian Lynx, was invited to participate in the project. Pantera
had a small part where she sits as the camera pans around in a
circle taking in different objects and people placed in the scene at
different positions. The filming was done by the bunkers at Wendover
says he expects to complete the project in 3 to 4 months. Platou’s
plan is to transfer his HD video footage to 35 mm film. Then he will
use the circular movement in the film as a base to play with sound
in a cinematic surround environment (so called 5:1).
add sounds of the lynx, the car, the digging etc. that appears at
various points in the film, and then let them circulate in the
cinemas room so they correspond with the objects.
Sunday, Platou recorded various sounds in Wendover, from inside the
car wash, the CLUI radio tower, airplanes, drag racing at Wendover
Raceway, and he says he will mix with other sounds that he hopes
will work to create a surreal soundscape.
