 “Moving Shadows: Experimental Film Practices in a Landscape of Change is a wide-ranging and accessible introduction to contemporary artisanal film practice, capturing a moment when, in the face of new digital technologies, experimental filmmakers see themselves as [what van Ingen calls] “lo-fi analogue” artists. The heart of van Ingen’s book comes from his intimate contact with the experimental film community, which gives Moving Shadows its rich anecdotal and technical detail. Moving Shadows provides on-the-ground accounts of how filmmakers are using a range of new and old technologies to handcraft remarkable films that are still expanding our understanding of the cinematic. Part oral history, part technological tour, this book passes down invaluable and increasingly arcane knowledge from the still-vibrant but disappearing medium of film”. (Michael Zryd, Associate Professor, Cinema and Media Studies, York University, Toronto)

Moving Shadows is part of Sami van Ingen´s Doctorate in Fine Arts for the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.
