I recently saw this experimental cinema DVD with Egbert Mittelstadt's experimental short called Unfolding.

I did some research and a technique called SLIT SCAN VIDEO was used?? what ever that is.

I can't load any of the footage, but basically the principle image is of a nude dancer moving to some sounds. Behind her is the same image moving from right to left. That image looks like it was "smeared" and so is a continuous smearing of the colors of the dancer who dances in front.

Does anyone who is familiar with the work know how he did this?

Cheers

Haven't seen Unfolding, so I can't comment specifically on it. But in case you haven't found it already there is a good resource for this type of effect here...

As well as creating some interesting distortion effects, these techniques can sometimes be used to repair image sequences. I remember seeing a Siggraph paper done by Microsoft Research (I think) where they were creating clean background plates using slit-scan techniques.
