  • Description

    Selected originals (out-takes, rushes, cuts, selected scenes) for newsreel story BASLE CARNIVAL AND FACE PAINTING - 69/26.

    Similar footage to cut story, showing students in strange costumes and masks in the Basle Carnival in Switzerland. More shots of the crowd as the students throw confetti over them and march by.

    It all looks very surreal. These cuts make you realise how much work went into producing these amazing costumes and masks - very impressive!

    Some night shots of the carnival, showing masks and floats illuminated. Massive paintings showing political situations are carried or driven along.
