Once Upon A Train

Once Upon A Train depicts a revelatory journey set in the Tokyo subway system.

Video was created using Goolsby’s “data palette” process, wherein hundreds of gigabytes of studio and vérité footage are shot and archived for a post-production jam of several days or weeks—on-the-fly, fluid creation much as a painter may use a palette of colors with the freedom to continually modify choices as the work progresses. Under these conditions the work will hopefully at some point begin to dictate creative decisions from possibilities within the available data palette. Diegetic and performed audio sources were given along with video drafts to Ms. Lee, who returned draft compositions to Mr. Goolsby where video was then modified and the process repeated several times.
