Producing a film includes the essential process of creating copies. Duplication is built into the medium itself and moreover, it constitutes an elaborate and decisive phase in the creative realization of a film. The footage of HEAVY EYES (Schwere Augen) evolved over the course of many copy generations and a number of different motion picture formats. From 16 mm found footage to DV-Cam to VHS, from VHS through a wide variety of digital file codecs, all the way to the striking of a 35 mm film print which constituted the final format of the work. Unfortunately, 35 mm film projection is no longer a standard available to all movie houses. For this reason, I increasingly allowed the film to be shown as a video instead of its intended final format. But I was always dissatisfied. So a revised version has now been created, allowing for a digital high definition projection that has conceptual integrity. The transition to this medium has created an entirely different experience. Though nothing has significantly changed in terms of content, HEAVY EYES has become a new work. (Siegfried A. Fruhauf)
