Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu in 2014 was edited to give the impression it was filmed in a continuous single take, like a one-shot film.
This work is a restless generative piece where the program plays with the subtitling of the original film in order to edit this nonlinear narrative. Choosing one specific timestamp after another, the software compiles fragments into a different movie. The random cuts in the narrative aim to disrupt the fluidity of the camera’s long take.
