Behind-the-scenes has never looked better than in this striking short from Randall Okita. Part documentary, part beautiful experiment, No Contract is a visceral exploration of truth on film.

A visceral performance exploring themes of urgency, desire and destruction.
– Vancouver International Film Festival
No Contract is a visceral video that combines elements of performance and documentary to explore themes of urgency, isolation and escape. All flames in the video are authentic and were recorded live, rather than created digitally. A single performer was lit on fire in front of an audience and performed a 30 foot a wire-assisted jump while burning. High speed cameras were used to capture this process, which was repeated numerous times, and several individual takes were used to create the work.
