How Do They Make It Rain In Movies?

The tape begins with a rolling text which describes a director's attempts at choreographing a complicated studio shoot. The director's complex vision of what occurs in the scene creates insurmountable technical problems. She accepts a compromise. From this point, the tape is constructed of unrelated image sequences and found audio. My intention was to help the viewer to consider the process of developing a film or videotape, the manipulation of sounds, images, and behaviour.
