Short Film: Whizz Bang Ooh Aah (2021)


Thanks to The Kick-About No.40, I went shooting off on another short-lived, if intense, trajectory inspired by these beautiful and poetic illustrations of fireworks. I’ve been sharing images resulting from my photography of soap bubbles, which was the safest way I could think of – in a short time – to work with colourful displays as fleeting as fireworks. I really enjoyed some of imagery, finding in it some of the explosive qualities we associated with pyrotechnics. What these experiments couldn’t express was the kineticism and noise of a good firework display, so I was further tempted to have a bash at using the photographs to produce some moving-image. Whizz Bang Ooh Aah is the result, my intention being to get close to that moment at the end of a big organised show when the sights and sounds become almost over-whelming, before the abrupt outbreak of darkness, silence – and applause!

    1. Hey Nancy – yes indeed, there’s always that moment when you think the finale of a good firework display ‘can’t sustain itself’ any longer – and then comes the relief when it finally does end! Thanks for stopping by, I owe you a proper catch-up! Hope all is well with you and yours X
