Finished date january 2nd 2009
A creation from the members of the Facebook "Exquisite Corpse and Surreal collaborative films Group"
The Exquisite Corpse process is as follows: Two or more artists collaborate to create a film. A section of film is created using animations,stills and live video footage. The artist then creates a short clip created from the last seconds of their section to be sent to the next artist taking part in the exquisite corpse, from the short clip the next artist begins their section of film. This process is continued until the film is completed and then assembled.
It is important that the artist receiving the short clip have no knowledge of the elements within the full section of film the short clip was cut from.
Artists working on these videos can use a file hosting site such as Mediafire to pass large files back and forth.
