Danse Surreal, 2007
Running Time: 3:13 mins
Lucinda Luvaas – Hemet California


“Danse Surreal,” is part of a group of video shorts that deal with natural imagery as it contrasts with urban environments and sound. In this short, I pay homage to Rene Magritte, who captured the essence of the oneric.

In addition, I’ve always been deeply affected by the fact that we can’t stop time. It passes by us and moves on without our being able to control it. Movement which to me can represent time is a vital component and in this film the swirling movement depicts time as it passes, as we grow and diminish– transforming ourselves from one thing to another.

I compose all my own audio and the sound is vital to these pieces because they are more about ambience and mood then about traditional narrative.

I see this suite of works as a sort of visual symphony or poem. Each piece, altho’ separate, will have a connection in terms of subject matter and mood, to the whole.

Hardware Used: Canon XL2, Nikon Digital Still Camera, Imac, and Power Mac G4
Software Used: Final Cut Pro, Motion, Digital Performer, Sound Track Pro, Commotion Pro and Adobe Photoshop.

The relationship to surrealism is definitely there. The images really flow well in this tick-tock way of the clock. This could work with all kinds of imagery.
