Shot in 2018 using old tech hi8 video casette, frog cycle explores a nostalgia for something that never existed. The film plays on the tropes of landscape depicted in the media, and with it, our longing for the wild exotic experiened on our TV screens. Through over-exposure, however, our sense of landscape has blurred, like the degradation of a video cassette that’s been played too many times.
