Experimental Film Re-edited At Every Screening
Eve Sussman, the filmmaker behind “whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir,” has set out to make each screening of her experimental film unique - such that a viewer never sees the same version of the film twice.
According to a February 22nd, 2012 James DeRuvo blogpost: "To accomplish this amazing feet, [Eve Sussman] took over 3,000 film clips, 80 voice-overs, and 150 pieces of music and pushed them through a series of complex computer algorithms which edited and re-edited the film between showings. The computer designed for the task (dubbed the “Serendipity Machine”), would automatically and randomly choose between the vast amount of source roll to piece together what Sussman would call “a movie that isn’t really a movie.”"
