Life in Loops

Timo Novotny
"Life in Loops" is a new version of a film, using its original material and mixing it with new imagery. About 30% of the material originates directly (in a new edit) from the the documentary film "Megacities" by Michael Glawogger, the rest is constructed from its unused footage: and new footage of Tokyo filmed by "Megacities" cameraman Wolfgang Thaler. The sound, created by the Sofa Surfers, defines the visual edits, and vice versa. The result is a symbiotic connection between image and sound that could best be described as an experimental-music-documentary film.
