Paul Malone : Movies : SheepSleepSheep

'SheepSleepSheep'. Still from movie. 2015

This movie follows the dreams of a sheep as it sleeps on a beach. Drawn from the text of a Gaelic fairy story, the narrative anticipates the integration of the beach environment into the story by the sheep. The story engages with the transmutation of life into different animal forms and their human protagonists; a theme very common in this kind of historical dreamscape, where experience is required to 'balance' rather than exhibit a defined rationality.

The voice-over is supplied by manipulated text to speech software. Sounds modulated using software by Native Instruments.
Filmed on location on the Island of Mull, Scotland.
