PHIL MULLOY SLEEPWALKER

                                SLEEPWALKER FILMS

 

In 2011 I spent three nights in Kansas City at the Holiday Inn Hotel on the corner of Main Street and East 45th Street. I'd just bought a new digital camera and was trying it out. One of the short pieces I shot was of one of the hotel's empty corridors. I simply filmed a walking track from one end of the corridor to the other. On returning to London, I viewed the shot, but did not know how in any way I could use it.Two years later, when looking for a background to the walking figure, I remembered that shot and superimposed the figure onto it.

 

Looking at some films I found myself becoming more interested in the backgrounds than the drama that was happening at the forefront of the screen. These films in part came out of a consideration of this idea.
