Last night down at the ourmedia film screenings, they played some excellent “remoscopes” by a Japanese collective. The idea of remoscopes is to follow the “lumiere rules”:

Lumieré Rule (six conditions)
no effect
no edit
maximum 1 minute
fixed camera
no zoom

Some beautiful works came out of it, full of consciousness of time passing and the beauty of the ordinary. I’d love to see more, and it’d be so easy to organise a night of home grown remoscope!
