Ephemera Turned Solid
The Arts Council has funded Max's new film project. He is currently Harper's Bazaar's "roaming poet". He produces poetry videos which look at the world of modelling through a poetic lens. You can find out more below. The process is one that is meant to mimic real vision. In this way he films only using an iPhone and does all post-production by himself. He has collaborated with the photographer and journalist Samuel Muston to overlay Polaroid images over the video to add alternative layers between the viewer and the poem. This is meant to mimic what it is to read a poem: the reader sees the combining layers of static image versus moving words and film.
