Bernardo – new video art with Meredith Adelaide

Some video pieces grow out of a plan, and others form organically; “Bernardo” is definitely one of the latter.  I had shot with artist Meredith Adelaide, and it went so well we scheduled another day the following week.  I had used up my more fully fleshed out concepts on our first day, so we ended up visiting the Phoenix Art Museum and shooting around the Salt River based on 2 ultra-basic FX ideas I had written in my notes (“light painting in firefly room” and “hovering with trampoline”).  There was a random encounter with a frog at the Salt River that seemed to shape the experience- Meredith randomly dubbed him “Bernardo”, and somehow he ended up being the focus of this particular video art piece.     A random encounter between a woman and a frog leads to a cosmic experience for both.  Filmed on the Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera> and effects in Adobe After Effects.
