DomesticationFilmSeries by 70FPS is meant to be a series of at least six 16mm shortfilms to be played live. The inner focus of the series is on the domestication process we all originated as human beings. The same domestication process we still are experiencing in our relation with non-human animals and, more in general, with the world of beings that surround us (including our own eyes and the way we look at this world and the materials we use to look at it, ie cinematic image).
Other than by a different way to work on the film at different levels, any of the six films will be accompanied by a different approach in live sound production (drowing and designing optical or magnetic sound, building new diy handmade photosensitive and magnetic electroacoustic circuits, hacking 16mm eiki and bolex or microtecnica projectors). In this way each film will be the departing material for a radically different live film concert in which the projector and the film itself are used as instruments to produce sound by modifying the cinematic image.
