Space Thing is a collage of black and white imagery employing photographs, 16mm film, super 8 home movies and stop-motion animation to recall the fragmented nature of dreams and old memories; it was inspired by, and features, the electronic music of Manherringbone. There was never any intended symbolism in the use of the images, my only concern was to construct something that was interesting to look at.
Tim studied filmmaking at Pittsburgh Filmmakers and is currently employed working in a dusty ware- house. His first film, an experimental short called Space Thing, premiered in 2004 at the Three Rivers Film Festival and went on to play at the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival; he recently completed his second film, a feature length documentary called Half A Bee. Tim lives in central Pennsylvania with his wife, a new baby, a three-legged chicken and a stuffed chin- chilla.
Manherringbone is one man, Bob Saunders, and has been recording and performing experimental music for over 10 years. Using all analog equipment in unintended ways has always been the inspiration for the project. The sound itself is flowing and unpredictable, ranging from echoing resonant pulses to extreme bursts of harsh noise. Bob’s whereabouts are currently unknown.
