"Fata morgana" is a experimental video by Lindsey Montgomery. I truly enjoyed this piece. It seemed like an experimental narrative. In the film, multiple puppets and figurines were shown on various mystical adventures.
Overall, I was most impressed by the captivating music and sound composition. There were engaging sonic textures which magically illustrated the visuals. As someone who traditionally dislikes puppetry, it was helpful to hear and see experimental expressions.
In addition, the camera angles were very cinematic. Although much of the film was stop-motion, or capturing puppets, the camera flow brought the inanimate object to life. Often times, the point of view and focusing was extremely effective. The photography of the film came across as very thought out. All in all, I was moved greatly by this piece.
