C-Flat

"C-Flat" is Jim Minton's 4th short film and a departure in technique and scope from his earlier pieces in content and production value. The piece is inspired by a David Gascoyne Dadaist poem from the early 1900's. Dada and Surrealistic poetry is often hard to interpret and this is a visualization of a work from that period in art history. Original music by Michael Mouracade of Austin, Texas. Narration by Marina Johnson of Stockholm, Sweden. Audio recording by Steven Cabrero/Eye to Eye Productions, Dallas, TX. Tape transfer by 12 Forward, Dallas, TX.
