For artists perennially working on a shoestring, the advent of cheap
DV has opened up new dimensions of the imagination. From music videos
to gorgeously photographed art films, high-concept gags to experiments
in light, video-interactive live work to low-budget features, the
moving image is being embraced by the underground as never before. Created in 2010 by TO cabaret editor Ben Walters, BURN is a platform for such work from across the cabaret spectrum.
