10 Seconds or Greater by Rachel Reupke is a single screen installation at Picture This. The film was made during the third in a series of residencies based at Picture This supported by Film London.

Formally based on the production of royalty-free stock footage, 10 Seconds or Greater maps the logical progression of a director through a check list of popular scenarios designed to illustrate such commercially lucrative concepts as 'communication', 'relaxation' and 'healthy life-style'.

With an original R&B score by Simon and Matt Ward.
