Silent film, 8mm, black and white, 2.5 minutes, 2008
In this short film, two frogs form a band and play a show on the floor of a mysterious man's apartment. Abraham Lincoln watches from the shadows.
I created this for an experimental film class in the spring of 2008. This was my practice roll of film and I was playing with light and focus by shooting various objects around my apartment. I digitally edited this movie using the small amount of footage that came out looking okay. It's quite sloppy, but the climax is riveting.
The actual Frog Band was passed down to me by my grandparents. They bought these two frogs on a trip to Mexico in the 1970s. Since acquiring them many years ago, I've used them in a handful of art projects. They are my muse. I'll be sharing more Frog Band art in the coming days.
