Working on a new artist film – Directionless



Directionless 1 (www.blairthomson.com)


I’ve been continuing the themes of the Journey to Nowhere series with a second film, called Directionless at the moment, which I have started editing, adjusting clips, cropping, trying out combinations and planning ‘scenes’, though like the previous film there is no clear plot from a to b, nor dialogue at the present. Detached from land, finding a home only temporarily, leaving again… with hopefully mysterious situations, this film will be more experimental than the last. A lot of the footage is quite low tech which I like, and leaves open possibilities for sound. So far I have a fair amount of drawings that I have worked on specifically to bring in, plus footage of structures. Finding fragments, pulling together.
