Synopsis

Shot entirely in 16mm black and white film using single frame photography, 165708 employs in-camera techniques and chemical manipulation of processed film to produce an eidetic study of temporal elasticity. Techniques include flicker, time-lapse, light painting, stop motion, tinting, and toning. Combined with cycles of alternating exposed frames, these methods imbue the work with a rhythmic magnetism, apparent both in the tempo and the aesthetic of the images.

Director statement

“Discovering the possibilities of texture, hue, and contrast within this process has been stimulating and exciting. I could never entirely anticipate the outcome – a fact complementing the production aspect, during which the shooting of one frame at a time required much patience and discipline, skills that also proved invaluable in the darkroom. I loved the process, and look forward to further exploring these techniques on my next film.”
