2005 - Pulse – arts film 25 mins
Pulse, the third film in a series looking at the London landscape, explores the artistic potential of digital filmmaking. Pulse has its emphasis on the river, the moon cycle, the tides, and people interacting with it.
Filming took place over 24 hours on the night of the September full moon 2004 with 10 cameras placed strategically on high buildings - the Shell building, The 'Shellmex' building, Tate Modern, and a boat on the Thames. This time-lapse footage is interwoven with vignettes of observations of the river and its inhabitants - differing perspectives and interpretations of the river over the 24hour period.
Guitarist Tony Remy wrote the music for the film and jazz saxophonist Jean Toussaint and tabla player Aref Durvesh feature.
Funded by Westminster City Arts Council and Film London.
