an “Art” Movie starring 2 Cats in a vintage store 粉紅貓古著店貓短片創作 (Olympus PEN)

I’m not a BIG fan of Olympus PEN, though many of my human friends are (especially those young girls). It’s the “Weekend Weekly” magazine editor told me she borrowed a Lite PEN (E-PL3) from Olympus and asked whether I was interested to take it for a 1-week trail. Why Not? Almost at the same time, one of my friends who runs a vintage Store in Central said, the lovely tiger-striped cat at his store just born 4 new babies. So I suddenly came across a funny topic for my column, that is “Using lite PEN to shot little baby kitten” !

I was not writing a camera review article, but I have to say here the “tilt screen” function of E-PL3 is very useful when I used it to shoot cats at very low angle (close to the ground). Its light weight and small size also made me be able to shoot photo or video with one hand. See, below are photos and two very short “art movies starring cats using this little camera. WOULD I buy a PEN? Sorry, don’t get the money … :(

我不是Olympus PEN的粉絲,雖然身邊很多人類朋友是,特別是女孩子。不過是上星期《新假期》的編輯跟我講,她剛向Olympus借了一部輕巧版PEN E-PL3,問我有否興趣借去玩一個星期。有新機玩當然無問題啦!同一時間,一個在中環開古著店的朋友說,他店內那隻非常可愛的虎紋貓生了小貓。於是我忽然想到以此作專欄題目,就是「『輕巧』PEN影BB貓」。

雖然不是寫試用報告,但真的要在這裡讚一讚此機的「可反80度角觀景屏幕」功能非常有用,尤其是以超低角度﹝貼地﹞拍貓時候。另外因為機身輕、細,我單手也可拿著相機拍攝相片及短片,另一隻手可用來打燈。看看,下面就是我用這部細小相機拍下的相片及甚有藝術味道的貓貓短片 … 會買這部機嗎?沒有多餘錢啊 … :cry:

night photos of ICC & IFC by my Holga 拍的兩幢夜景高廈相

MEOW … photos of ICC (a skyscraper in HK), shot by my Holga plastic camera last Monday while under Fierce Attack from mosquitoes … 被惡蚊猛針下,上星期一用Holga拍的夜景ICC﹝環球貿易廣場﹞相片 …  PINKCAT ‘s Articles in Weekend Weekly《新假期》  

:P

Shooting ICC had to tolerate many many Mosquitoes’ stings … Shooting another skyscraper ~ IFC was a much more enjoyable experience. See, these are photo I shot a few years ago … very artistic !

影ICC要捱蚊針,反而影它的姊姊大廈IFC﹝國際金融中心﹞就舒服得多。看,這就是幾年前用Holga拍下的 … 好藝術啊!

my Articles about Holga/Lo-Fi photography in “Weekend Weekly” 《新假期》的專欄稿。

MEOW, I’ll write a series of articles about Holga & Lo-Fi photography in “Weekend Weekly“, a very popular Travel and Food magazine in Hong Kong. In this column they would invite different photography artists to participate and I might be the only CAT (not human) invited by them … my honor ! :idea:

粉紅貓會在《新假期》專欄寫關於HOLGA或Lo-Fi攝影的稿,得閒留意一下啦。該專欄他們每期會邀請不同的「攝影達人」﹝貓?!是唯一一隻 …真是我的榮幸 :D ﹞參與,所以久不久便會輪到我寫。下面是已出版的。

* these photos might not be large enough to let you read these articles clearly, you have to buy a real Hard-copy magazine. 這些相片可能不夠大,讓你看清楚內容,當然啦,你要花錢買一本真雜誌!

My first Holga Movie “Freedom of Laziness” (Trailer) !我用Holga相機拍的首套短片呀。

MEOW, some new stuff by PINKCAT, this movie trailer was shot by my Holga 120 plastic camera, of course I’ve to do some very low-tech modification. Details could be seen in my article in Issue 615 of “Weekend Weekly” magazine which is a very popular Travel & Food magazine in HK. ~~>  HOW to Shoot a motion Movie using HOLGA? 

It’s a trailer only, will finish this movie (art project) if I got some free time and find a “suitable human” to be the actresses and do the music for the movie. Special thank to Hina for her guest appearance in this trailer (though just 3 seconds). This girl is also a talented photography and painting artist. Actually this movie is related to my another creative writing project ~  Freedom of Laziness  !

粉紅貓又有新作品。對呀,Holga相機也可以用來拍短片的。當然要經過一些很low-tech的改裝。改裝步驟可於我在第615期《新假期》的專欄內看到 ~~>  用Holga拍短片? 

多謝Hina客串這條預告片的演出﹝雖然只出鏡了3秒 ﹞。這位中日混血兒本身也是一位攝影及繪畫藝術家,很切合影片的主題啊!遲些有空,又找到合適的人類當演員及為電影配樂 … 便會完成這套短片,喵,每次拍幾秒,可能要拍幾年呢。這「電影」其實是跟我的一項文字創作 ~  Freedom of Laziness  有關的,一個幻想出來的未來世界 ….

未來世界的某一日…
為何你們還要千方百計去證明自己對新世界有實質貢獻?那些精英分子已運用他們的智慧,為你們創造出享之不盡的資源。他們都很有教養,也不會看不起你們。你們生存的最大意義應­該是盡情享樂,努力做好你們的藝術家本份。某天你的作品被一些精英分子用高價買下來,到時,你便會沾沾自喜,稱呼自己為「精英分子」了!

one day in the future …
Why you’re so eager to prove that you have real contribution to this new world ? Now the machines created by the elites could produce unlimited resources for you. You need not do anything but simply enjoy your life or work hard to be a good artist. Those well-educated elites won’t look down on you either. One day maybe one of your artworks would be appreciated by them and sold in high price. At that time, you will name yourself an elite !

my book published by Kubrick 我的新書 / Holga人物相集!

MEOW, pinkcat@pinkwork™ finally wakes up … cause I’ve to introduce you my new book “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” published by Kubrick. This book features photos of several tens of people taken using my Holga during the past several years, and lines of words which are seemingly related to these people but are actually just some feelings and thinkings “they” had brought me. The people in my book are pop artists, illustrators, poets, indie musicians, film directors, theater actors … etc, each has their own character … “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” is now available at 2010 hk book fair, kubrick and many other book stores (may be after the book fair).

Kubrick, a publisher I like very much which is a cultural book store/cafe/publisher and also a very “popular” hangout place for many poetry and film lovers. It has also published books of many renowned film critics, music critics, poets … etc. … pinkcat suddenly become very cultural. “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” is the first of its “life seeker” playable book series. Why call it playable ? Go to the book’s page and you’ll know the answer. meow MEOW … it’s a playable art concept … !

I haven’t seen the finished product yet, maybe this coming Friday I would squeeze into the very crowded book fair , shoot some real product photo and upload here.

pinkwork™粉紅貓終於都醒來了﹝貓都喜歡睡覺的﹞,因為要同大家介紹我的新書《I DON’T KNOW THEM…》,這是由我最喜愛的出版社Kubrick出 版的,它亦是一間文化書店/咖啡室/出版社及一眾電影與文學愛好者的熱門聚腳地。書內有我幾年來用Holga相機拍攝的人物相片,包括一些獨立音樂人、電 影人、插畫家、流行歌手、舞台劇演員等等,各有不同身份,以及一堆堆看似跟這班人有關的文字,其實是他們帶給我的一些感覺和相法。 此書會在2010香港書展、kubrick及其他書店有售。﹝其他地方可能要等書展之後﹞… 。

這亦是Kubrick的「life seeker」玩具圖書系列的第一本作品。為何叫它做玩具圖書?因為真的可以拿來玩的。看看下面的新書頁。喵,這是一個可以玩的藝術意念。

我還未看過這本書印成之後的模樣,應該是一本細細本,似玩具多於一本書的物體。可能星期五嘗試迫入書展,拍些實物相片post上來。

* 此書網頁還用了一種叫Augmented Reality 擴增實境的技術 ﹝此名稱無論中、英文相信都沒有人會明白,讀者將書內的黑色方格圖案對準你的電腦鎲頭,便會看到一些書內沒有的相片、小短片… 不過此頁還在製作中,快會跟大家見面 .. 其實早已整好了,只是嫌未夠得意,要略為改動。多謝Sun和Renatus兩位設計師幫我搞這些非常technical的東西 …你知啦,貓是很蠢的 … :-)
