Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Tony Hill was one of the key figures in the expanded cinema movement of the 1970s that was discussed extensively by Gene Youngblood in his seminal volume Expanded Cinema from 1970. Following on from Youngblood, Hill, Guy Sherwin and others pioneered the idea of cinema as an event involving a performative or immersive element. He later became known for his complex camera rigs that allowed unusual perspectives to be used in music videos, commercial projects and his own video productions. Steve Gibson speaks to Tony Hill about his long involvement with expanded cinema and his more recent forays into digital video.
