A Loft

Directed by Ken Jacobs
United States, 2010
Short, Avant-Garde

Synopsis

A 3-D glimpse of a downtown Manhattan artist’s loft about to give birth to new artist’s lofts, which is odd, seeing that dentists and the minor hirelings of high finance are likely to be the new renters and buyers. Also odd is the absence of any 3-D technology.

  • TheCentralRuhr's rating of the film A Loft

    One of the most successful of Jacobs' 3D films in my estimation. At a certain point, Jacobs creates the sense that he's panning the camera across the room (while still maintaining the flickering 3D effect). This 'pan', which matches the illusion of movement with the illusion of depth, launches the film into some kind of simultaneous embodiment and disruption of cartesian space the likes of which I've never seen.
