An Exquisite Corpse video by Bernard Dumaine and Steve Smith. Video clips and soundtracks by B. Dumaine and S. Smith :icontheoneiricrealist:
Finished date january 2nd 2009
A creation from the members of the Facebook "Exquisite Corpse and Surreal collaborative films Group"

The Exquisite Corpse process is as follows: Two or more artists collaborate to create a film. A section of film is created using animations,stills and live video footage. The artist then creates a short clip created from the last seconds of their section to be sent to the next artist taking part in the exquisite corpse, from the short clip the next artist begins their section of film. This process is continued until the film is completed and then assembled.
It is important that the artist receiving the short clip have no knowledge of the elements within the full section of film the short clip was cut from.

Artists working on these videos can use a file hosting site such as Mediafire to pass large files back and forth.

All I have at the top of my page is "friends" and "favorites"
Bernardumaine's avatar
On the top right, you have " watch", "send a note" and "give" located just under "friends" and "favourites" :-)

I understand where it should be located, but all I have below friends and favorites is "edit page".

This was unlike anything I've ever seen, that is for sure.
And that's what is so great about it.
I sat through the entire piece, dumbstruck, with my mouth gaping.
And when that chicken walked across the screen in the suit I couldn't help but smile.
I think that was the highlight of my evening.
So I thank you for that.
Truly wonderful work, the two of you.
