Ballardian video gain with Vista 8

Vista 8 is the winner of the 1st Ballardian Festival of Home Movies. Other finalists of this sub-one minute in-camera mobile phone video recordings also show a provocative analogue/digital purity.

As someone who’s experimented with mobile phone footage for years (the frozen ROAM project – pushing new aesthetics for the mobile screen/locative video) – this is definitely the most affecting and effective use of the medium I’ve seen. The ability to create Chris Marker-esque video collages exposing small personal mysteries has fascinating narrative implications.
