I think stolen is a pretty excessive word to describe what I did. Of course Chris Cunningham is a big inspiration of mine but if you’re referring to that glass/face thing. Cunningham uses it as a way to create an impact with the camera, the head gets smashed on it and I believe its the first time head smashing that was done that way, it’s awesome. Of course the editing gives a similar look to what I did, but I concentrate a lot more on the curves of the face and how they evolve when the face takes another position, I create the illusion of movement through morphing between different face position…
I’m inspired by Cunningham and I like his aesthetics but I don’t think using spastic editing and close up of faces should be considered as stealing someone’s work. I mean in music people actually reuse the exact same parts of audio taken from somebody else’s composition and sometimes it’s not even considered as being stolen… I didn’t even use his imagery.
Haha that would have been fun!.. I wish I could have done that but it would have gone against my initial intentions… I’m playing with the ambiguity between the cat and the woman, they are the same person in a way, that’s what I was trying to say.
