Morrison's Birthday Party

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The latest film by Frame on Frame was made in the style of Mike Leigh and Alexander Sokurov.

It is an exceptional piece of experimental film-making and was shot from beginning to end in less than 100 minutes, using 6 cameras strategically placed in a large private garden in Hammersmith.

Twenty-four actors took part and although they worked to a plot, all the dialogue was improvised during the shoot with no rehearsals beforehand. Only Morrison was made aware of the final scene before the shoot.
