"10 Seconds in Our Life"

Hope Hall is making a 15-minute video about the last 10 seconds of 1999. these 10 seconds are chosen arbitrarily to be filled with emotion; the same span of time is passing as you read this description, yet they pass unnoticed.

Why do we not infuse meaning, excitement, or the sense of possibility into each moment? interviews with a hopeful stanford undergrad and a quiet, 87-year old jesuit scholar mixed with an electronic score to form the sound score to a collage of 30-40 new year's celebrations from around the world.

The images from stills, video, super-8 and 16mm materials will be slowed, frozen, colored, and projected in reshooting them onto dv. the project will then be edited on final cut pro.
