Wednesday video fun — Captain Kirk loop

Bill Shatner’s graced the “video fun” post before, and here’s an interesting and unusual entry.

I’ll let the text from the boing boing post where I found this video do the explaining:

LA Weekly reviews the screening of a Daniel Martinico’s 15-minute movie, Khaan!, which is a loop of James Kirk winding up to scream the name of his nemesis in The Wrath of Khan. The two-minute clip above, according to reviewer Mark Mauer, “doesn’t begin to do justice to the size, sound and hypnotic power of the real thing.”

Last week Machine Project in Echo Park showed Martinco’s 15-minute meticulously re-spliced creation in a never-ending loop that transforms the moment from one of anguish (or snickering for the the audience) into a meditation, maybe even a mantra.
