Collapsing Towers Vimeo from Bill Leslie on Vimeo<

Collapsing towers footage. There was a great joy in the studio in knocking these over and then reviewing the results, but now as a video, I'm not so sure this is all that interesting. The magic moment seems to be when the towers hover for a second in the air but still maintain their coherence as structures. The resulting tumble seems inevitable and a little obvious.

The 16mm however is quite exciting. Hand processed these in old chemicals and the bleach had gone off. The image is negative but really marked by putting it in the old bleach - which has messed with the celluloid but not reversed it!
