Clyde and Kelvin

Super 8, 5mins 52secs

Visual exploration of the River Clyde and the River Kelvin. I wanted to tell the story of each river through an abstract collection of patterns, movements and textures.

I have used the same footage from 'Five Days' and 'Along the Clyde' but have re edited them in a split screen version. The Kelvin River is a tributary of the Clyde and I wanted to make a film that highlighted their similarities as well as their differences. The concept of each individual film is very different but there are shots in each that worked nicely in conjunction with each other. Again this re editing changes the narrative of the film, it becomes much more about comparison between the rivers. The rhythm of the film is dictated by the flow between images and the breaking up of separate shots.
