Wall Clouding preproduction notes

Note: Wall Clouding was a working title; BEACH ROAD is the name of the finished project. Info about Beach Road is here.

What: Wall Clouding is a spontaneous act of filmmaking using the Aliwal Street area as inspiration. The Wall Clouding activities take place as part of Unlocking With Ears, Stephen Black's exhibit at the Museum of Independent Music Singapore.

Wall Clouding aims to be noteworthy on several levels, one being technical. Thanks to the support of Hiverlab, one video will be shot in 360 video. At the moment, drones are being researched, as well as 4K cameras. Through careful preproduction, it is possible to create with all of these formats.

Also, thanks to the support of the Museum of Independent Music, Wall Clouding will have access to professional recording facilities for musicians and voice talents.

The final film will likely be a short film of approximately 10 minutes long. However, there are exciting and unpredictable possibilities that will be explored. The goal is, however, to have finished work in hand at the close of Unlocking With Ears.

Who: Wall Clouding is being produced by artist/writer Stephen Black. He has documented the dance performances of Kazuo Ono, produced stories for Fuji TV, France 2, CNN, Cartoon Network and Fox and has collaborated with Kumiko Akiyoshi. Orchid Orchitect was a text collaboration with Michael Lee for the 2011 Singapore Biennale and 3how: the Riverwalk Session was a musical co-production with Amith Narayan featuring a variety of noteworthy musicians. Black is the author of several books, including the bestselling I Ate Tiong Bahru.
