Cat Collar 2 - One Night In Brixton (2008)

9 min 5 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"A year on from the first Cat Collar film and Oscar dons a newly modified puppy's hoody, with night vision spy camera, for another outing. The title of the film refers to Paris Hilton's infamous internet video; the sounds from which can be heard in the background of One Night In Brixton. As Ford states, there are similarities between the two: "Both sets of footage are filmed in the dark with night vision, both contain a lot of rustling sounds, both feature a pussy and neither have a climatic ending."
