After Sundsbo captured actors' likenesses in still images, he captured them on video. Each actor was given 60 seconds to create a narrative, to “create something like a poem that can lead your imagination.”
The result is a compilation called 14 Actors Acting,which looks and feels like an avante garde screen test of the French New Wave. It’s an expertly shot, black and white “video gallery of classic screen types.” There’s no dialogue. The only sound is provided by the instruments of the Czech Symphony Strings playing music by “composer to the indie stars,” Owen Pallett.
