What might movement-centred, kin-centric film-making look like?
Abram on Animism: ...'the instinctive experience of reciprocity… between the perceiver and the perceived — lies at the heart of all human perception.' (Abram,2018)
The spooler (digital-flick book-with-physics below) and walkerscope involve the physicality of the viewer, the Quizzer is situated, flick-books-as-navigation add back movement/materiality/interrelation into moving-image.

Abram goes on: 'While such participatory experience may be displaced by our engagement with particular tools and technologies…’
(For this reason, I chose against a digital interface in the outdoors…)
‘...it can never entirely be dispelled. Rather, different technologies tend to capture and channel our instinctive, animistic proclivities...' (Abram,2018)
(...yet the spooler banks on our evolutionary appetite for 'things that move.')
