I usually don’t watch the film I’ve dug up. I start scratching the single frames without knowing what’s on them. I use engravers, colours, burns, transfers… and I work on the frames for about a month and a half. The time needed for a 3 minute Super8. Then I telecine it at home, i.e. I re-record the material in digital. This is where I discover what I have done for a month.
Romborama is the fruit of one day of shooting and two and a half months of scratching, torment, solitude, anxiety and inspiration…. To achieve the right degree of confusion. I lacerated 15000 frames on a 35mm film. Then I added letraset, colour and in the end I applied the screentones, used by designers to emphasize the colour contrast.
