Twenty Second Filmpoem is twenty 20 second Filmpoems; it was conceived when I was asked to do a Pecha Kucha night in Edinburgh. An interesting concept, you present 20 slides for 20 seconds; I thought I’d do something a little different, actually create some work for the event. I commissioned 20 writers, all listed below, to write flash fiction against some 1960s found footage I’d edited. It’s ambitious and inevitably some bits work much better than others, but for me it is imperative to push this a little, to leave my comfort zone. All the writing is superb and for that I am thankful. I also took the opportunity of using Vladimir Kryutchev’s binaural field recordings, for which I thank him.
