Shocking Film Adaptation of Beckett's Waiting for Godot - 72 Minutes of Pure Green Screen
Nigel Tomm releases new film adaptation of Samuel Beckett's ' Waiting for Godot,' where he extends and demolishes the boundaries of contemporary cinema showing us 72 minutes and 5 seconds pure green screen, nothing less and nothing more.
In Samuel Beckett's 'Waiting for Godot' adaptation Nigel Tomm shows us 72 minutes and 5 seconds pure green screen. Nothing less and nothing more. Nigel Tomm redefines classical drama one more time. The screen serves us more than meets the eye. The scene apparently represents the shift into dream state, and it's the most beautiful and surprising screen of mind. This is not a drama revolution. This is a visual morphine where tragedy is expressed in the purest prospect. It's just a tiny little line between you and the inside of the screen. It's all in the head, isn't it? Now you see it. Now you don't.
Nigel Tomm is also known as a writer. He has developed and extended a literary remix (also known as literature remix or remixed literature) genre. His famous 'remixed' books are: 'Shakespeare's Sonnets Remixed' (2006), 'Shakespeare's Hamlet Remixed' (2007) and 'Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Remixed' (2007). Nigel Tomm continues his experiments in literature with 'The Blah Story.'
'The Blah Story' will probably go down in history as Nigel Tomm's masterpiece. And deservedly so. In 'The Blah Story' Nigel Tomm introduces literary phase-shifting, i.e., allowing nearly identical phrases at slightly differing lengths to repeat and slowly go out of phase with each other. Also algorithmic literature's and fractal literature's methods are extensively used.
Nigel Tomm's literary phase-shifting minimalism is made dazzlingly entertaining in 'The Blah Story,' which is made persuasively engaging textures from repeated phrases in the novel. All 'The Blah Story' is based mostly in steady pulse, stasis and slow transformation, and often reiteration of phrases or other textual units such as paragraphs, sentences, and words (with over usage of the word 'blah').
