Filmed at Blackfriars Station, Platform synchronises three screens of commuters in the station. A natural tempo occurs as the characters within the footage choreograph themselves creating ebbs and flows and prescribing the timeline. Using tracking and stabilizing software the frame is manipulated to become the main player of the sequence, creating an animated black wipe across each frame of the screen, allowing us only glimpses of the movement and characters within.
