DEFORMIN’ IN THE RAIN

An ongoing collection of deformances made from Singin’ in the Rain:

Based on Kevin Ferguson’s summed frame project, the visuals cumulatively add frames using the astronomy imaging software StarStax. The sound, co-designed by David Miranda Hardy, layers a steady beat of samples evenly spaced throughout the film. Together, this two minutes compiles all of Singin’ in the Rain into something new.

Breaking the entire film into its individual component visual shots, I took the resulting 376 shots and sorted them into ascending length – the resulting video is the entire film arranged from shortest to longest shot. There are some interesting insights gained by watching the first few minutes, in terms of which shots are shortest and what juxtapositions emerge, as well as the end, where I was surprised that there were more dialogue long takes than in dance numbers.
