Above is a trailer for the documentary I’m working on with some friends. This is a link to the site. Hey, you might even try liking us on Facebook! (Thereby committing yourself to a drip-feed of images and reports about the filmmaking, such as what snack crackers I prefer to eat while screening, or how cold I am in the editing bay, or what sort of quick movements frighten our illustrator’s dog.) Here is some more information:
For the last twelve years, Bill Kremer has hosted a week-long kiln firing on a property just outside of Cassapolis, MI. There gathers an ad hoc community of fine arts students, educators, and ceramics aficionados who work in shifts throughout the nights, feeding fuel into the massive wood-fire kiln. “A Kiln Film” is an impressionistic account of this process. It records the people who feed the flames, the clay turned into glass by the heat, and sumptuously photographs Kremer’s own “ideal forms,” his sensual earthen sculptures.
This momentish, I’m piecing together a sequence to do with just those sensual forms! Pavel went out yesterday morning with a flashlight or something, and touched moonbeams like silk all over their glossy shoulders. I’ll post some pics of these mysteries soon!
