The new short film 'Frame of Mind' by film makers Steve Alan and Ben Boutwell is an extraordinary depiction of imagination and skill. For the video, the two traveled around and took various pictures around Hawaii while carrying around and framing themselves within a seemingly simple, empty picture frame. The magic within 'Frame of Mind' lies in the editing and photography that creates a transition from still photography into real time. The short video is accompanied by The Avett Brothers'song 'Kick Drum Heart,' adding to the jovial pace of the film.
Imaginative, high-spirited and well-executed, 'Frame of Mind' by Steve Alan and Ben Boutwell showcases the talented filmmakers' ability to create something vividly austere and intricate from a seemingly simple concept.
