When reading the Turner Prize shortlist and a short write up about each of the artists, the one the struck me the most and sounded the most interesting was James Richards. His film Rosebud is made up of self-shot and also found footage. It includes footage of scratched out erotic images, water movement and a bird attempting to take flight; all seemingly very unconnected footage. He filmed some of the underwater footage using a very cheap underwater camera, I find it amazing that he simply stumbled across filming the footage and it has now been nominated for the Turner Prize.
This is a really interesting interview that Richards did about his own work and also the other work which is nominated. I think over the summer I am going to try and get some footage and practice with the editing software.
