Wilhelm Reich

Todeskino completed a film called "Wilhelm Reich" ( 16 mm, 8340 frames, 6').
The film is built of 16 cells, sequences where the frame-units are corresponding to the Fibonacci series that were applied to a measure of film durations by Todeskino ("CineFrAc" / Golden Section / human proportions).

The cells follow steps of 2 or 3 numbers of the first, left, classic Fibonacci series that sum up to another number in the series, whereas the sums of the 3 units steps result in a number of the second, right series which is based on the double of the first. See the following illustration:

For the composition of part I the random generator random.org brings the 16 cells into a random order. The subjects of the units are consisting of b/w found footage (partly negative), colorized in 6 colors of the spectrum by Todeskino's special film colorizing method. The material represents Reichian topics (scientific, biologic, microscopic, cellular, cosmic, erotic and political images). 
For the structure of part II random.org was deciding a random order of 100 cells, where the single sequences can occur repeatedly. In the film the sequences are edited as long as every cell has appeared at least once, which is resulting in 51 sequences of cells in the present film. The film's total duration sums up to 8340 frames.

Polynome 9936/Polynomials 9936 - New Film Conceptions 3

Todeskino completed a new film in the series New Film Conceptions, "Polynomials 9936", 7' 16mm. The film is conceived after the principle of a „functional montage“. The durations of the film units for the sequences are projected as mathematical functions. On the abscissa the units are passing after the progressive timeline and added to sequences. The durations of the frame-units are a result from the function values on the ordinate, that are varying after the progressing units and calculated after polynomial functions.

Elements of composition after the mentioned polynomial-distributed durations of the filmframe-units are
the sequences as „film-polynomials“, that are succeeding consecutively numbered (#1-16), at which the total number of frames is indicated, that is distributed by each function (e.g. #1 / 264) and 9936 in the title is refering to the entire film’s  frame number that is distributed, organized and composed by the single polynomials. And the "subjects" of the film units consisting of clear leader dyed in the six colors of the spectrum with a special colorizing technique developed by Todeskino, found footage material, found footage dyed in the mentioned colors, original material, original material dyed in the same colors and finally
black leader with abstract geometric figures scratched into it with the help of templates. All distributions for the subjects/materials were decided by a random generator at www.random.org
