Specially commissioned film and video pieces by well-known artists and works gathered from an open call for submissions from new talent, seeking out anyone with creative ideas.
The distinguishing feature of the project is that all the works being produced are shot in one single take. Echoing the nature of this highly immediate and accessible aesthetic, the Single Shot films will be viewable on this website and many will be available as downloads to mobile phones and to video iPods.
While the selected Single Shot pieces demonstrate a wide diversity of approaches, what they share is a desire to create a work of power and complexity from the most basic of cinematic elements - the single, unedited shot. Whether humorous or poignant, seductive or disturbing - or indeed all of these things - what each work attempts is to catch the viewer's eye and hold it, unblinkingly, until the end.
