STK-ID 76944

FI12839.018 (& FI12839.010) These are tests for Canon in 35mm b/w Important The two tests – the first is a white ball falls from “heaven”. Munro and McLaren are dressed in white and play with it. There is a white pedestal and one of them finally places the ball on the pedestal. Not very interesting really. Of more interest is the second test – a “canonised” Munro – four of him – dressed in black with white tape weaving around his costume – he is wearing one of those old admiral’s hats (à la Nelson). Visually it is probably inspired by those experiments of the French film pioneer Marey. Gerald Budner made the costumes. These tests do have multi-speeds including some single frame.
