Noise Pictures is an experiment of producing porn. The shooting took place in a small appartment of a friend with hired professional porn actors – a couple in real life – and an improvisational music group called Noise Pictures, playing live music during the shooting. The music group was supposed to react upon the actors, on their rhythm, movements, and on the different situations during the shooting, preferably with banal jazz music. The unexperienced director is directing the sympathetic and tender elderly couple in a short and sharp tone, making them change positions quickly and underlying in this way an absurd moment of manipulation. The second cameraman is recording the whole setting including the music group, the couple, and the filming director, who concentrates on close-ups of the actors’ efforts while directing the action. The resulting movie is a two channel video containing the entire action recorded simultaneously with two cameras without any editing cuts.
