Barcelona-based design studio, No-Domain, recently ran a workshop for 25 lucky Portuguese students to explore their newest video technique—”Video Cross Processing”. Using a lo-fi approach to video production, the process generates glitches, scratches, colours and patterns on analogue footage before re-appropriating it on a digital screen. This re-appropriation is then shot and shot again until a kind of ‘screen within a screen within a screen’ scenario emerges.
Complicated and time consuming as it might be, the result is one of the most visually stimulating works we’re seen in a while. Initially an arresting array of colours, flickers and patterns, soon enough the letters that formed the original images start to emerge. While this video was just the result of a workshop, we can’t help but think that this method could be an interesting option for budding videographers out there looking for an edge.
