Gnome’s Day Out

An experimental short film about a gnome and their adventure out of their home.

My friend Zach lent me his Sony PD150 for a little bit, so I made a very short film about a gnome who leaves their home to see what’s going on out in the world.

Gnome’s Day Out is an experiment. It was fun to use an older camera that records to a tape deck. I like the image quality. Making this film has me reflecting on how the rapid pace at which technology changes means that so many cameras get left behind with no real use. I think that’s a bit of a shame, as they all have their own visual qualities. While the advancement of technology brings some positives, I wish that there was less of a focus on the specs of any given camera.

The music used in Gnome’s Day Out is “I Allegro con brio” and “II Andante con moto”, composed by Ludwig van Beethoven and performed by Lambis Vassiliadis. They are part of the public domain. Listen to them here.
