Project 1: our example of camera movement

Below you can find Project 1, a film by Yohan Forbes which won the first Future Film Award at the BFI Future Film Festival in 2009.  When we joined Le Cinema cent ans de jeunesse, we offered this 5 minute film as an example of a film whose narrative was nothing more or less than a kind of rapture communicated by the most expressive movement of the camera.

Yohan spent months making the film, and shot many hours of footage.  He shot it himself, tracking alongside skater Tim Tutak on a skateboard of his own.  The film neatly illustrates the Cinematheque premiss for camera movement: that a rhythmic relationship is necessary between moving and static camera, rather than always assuming by default that the camera must move.
