To my mind, video and movies are simply a collection of photos presented as a sequence, usually with an audio component. While each frame, like a photograph, may present a particular action that occurred at a particular time and place, the next frame could well be from studio B rather than Studio A, for example. However, with video, a whole new set of technical, aesthetic and content dimensions open up. Film making may be essentially stringing together a sequence of photographs, perhaps with some digital effects thrown in, but the end product is quite different from a photograph, if only because it requires presentation technology, while a photograph can be printed on paper.

These are some of my attempts to make visual art in the video medium.  My YouTube channel has many more videos, though most are more or less documentary reports of events or of a more instructional nature.
