chicken screen tests

Californian chickens and a kind of evil looking duck step into the spotlight in Aaron Rose's Warhol-inspired mock screen tests.

“The vignettes were shot during a series of Levi’s-sponsored filmmaking workshops about sustainable lifestyle hosted at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles, culminating in the documentary Wild Goodness. Renowned music supervisor Randall Poster, creative director Gelya Robb and Rose masterminded the shorts, with the latter enlisting artist Tobin Yelland to teach the basics of shooting 16mm film within the standard formula of the Factory screen tests, with subject and camera remaining motionless throughout to create a living portrait."

Music by Dean And Britta - a great cover of Bob Dylan's “I'll Keep It With Mine“.
