NIMA 2016: Sorrow

NIMA 2016: Sorrow

Stock footage adapted from my July 2016 podcast interview with film composer Nima Fakhrara (The Girl in the Photographs, 1979 Revolution: Black Friday) for (

The first of 3 sets in the NIMA 2016 collection – Sorrow – is comprised of several distinct elements. The primary files feature narrow and wide lines that pulse either from the edges or from the centre in beats of 2 or 4 per loop. I've coloured them in straight red, green, and blue over a black background.

The secondary file consists of a series of red horizontal lines that flicker and strobe, but pulse twice in coarse clusters.

Basic facts:

- Royalty-free
- Looped
- Silent
- Filmed off an analogue oscilloscope using a multiplexer and an analogue SD camera, recorded straight into Premiere, and layered with custom effects and colour plugins within a 1920x1080 project.
- Final file is a 1920x1080 H264 MP4 file at 29.97 fps.

This collection features a total of 13 clips, including 3 bonus alternates: "Wide Lines Centered" in Red, Green, and Blue.

Sets in the NIMA 2016 collection include Sorrow, Lake, and Girl. Please note: these clips cannot be resold, repackaged, or streamed for sale without written permission from the author, Mark R. Hasan.
