Paul Malone : Movies : Studio Railroad 01

Studio Railroad 01 (2014 remaster)
Still from Studio Railroad 01

This movie is a complex tour of the artist's studio consisting of trackways of interlocking loops. The camera is mounted sideways on one of the wagons and essentially 'paints' the scenes as it traverses the 200 metre layout. The tour is arranged in 3 portrait windows sequencing consecutive panoramas of the studio.

There are 2 phases to the movie. The first is descriptive of the studio but it soon becomes apparent from the sound that the engine is failing. In the second phase the camera is followed by the artist's giant feet which eventually catch up with the motion as the engine finally fails.
