The sky´s blue hanging above the black of a forest. Lightning flashes over a clearing. And the white ball of the moon with dark spots. These are the three suggestions that make Night Sweat an examination of a visual effect´s technical aspects.
The film was shot in analog Hi-8 video. Its poor resolution, especially in precarious light conditions, occupies the foreground in the first and third chapters. At the same time the musical accompaniment matches perfectly, with scattering beats, dubby wisps of sound and intensifying distortion effects. In the zoom of this part´s final shot the pixelated blue of the night resembles the pandemonium of bacteria under a microscope: The image exists behind the documentary appearance.
In the concluding part the picture "trembles," then condenses into an apparently familiar representation of the moon, which is in fact conveyed only through various media devices. After the camera zooms back, the horizontal layer of blocks turns out to be an outer edge of a bright circle.
