Walking in Footage is an experiental short film working with found footage. The film is produced by using an umatic engine and its specific methods of film editing. In addition, a video mixer was used to produce and shape mixes coming from visual and sound material disturbances specific for film material. In the course of digital editing color was extracted to be able to even more focus on humans running, walking through and sitting in media noise, feeling disturbed by turbulences.

Walking in Footage is a film on the search for happiness in an information age where, much too often, slowliness and simplicity find themselves in a defensive position in relation to consequences of data overflow and where, much too often, it is difficult to create silence within an abundance of data.
