Abstract
"Fireworks Test" appears to contain test footage for a variety of different goals in mind for JoAnn Elam. The first half matches the form and content of Elam's later work "Celebrated Royal Fireworks (Original)," in which firework explosions are filmed in the night air and on a movie screen. The second half of this reel appears to test zooming (with an insect on a tree), printing exposure (alternating shots of a bear and a man walking down the road, each getting progressively darker), and lens masking.
