An old educational film. Damaged. Something to appease my guilt.
(I hear that the City of Victoria is dealing with the problem)
A couple months ago, I was asked to document an event. I did. And then I played with the footage and created this short video-doodle. Since the doodle misrepresents the event that the documentation was from, I won’t mention the name of the event here (although it is in the credits of the film) – Take that google spiders.
If you’re in Calgary this weekend, check out the $100 Film Festival at the Plaza Theatre – March 4-6, 2010
“Three days of short film, on film. Experience the magic of cinema with short film screenings, performances and parties. Full program now available on the website. This year’s program features special performances and workshops by Amanda Dawn Christie!”
A 16mm film I made a couple years ago called “Alone” will be screening. Fun times. Wish I could be there. Amanda Dawn Christie’s work is fantastic.
Here’s a photogram film doodle, called “fixit,” with a noisy soundtrack.
This weekend, check out CineVic and Puente Theatre’s Scene and Heard Redux at the Metro theatre, where films will be accompanying live storytelling. A film and story collaboration between myself and Rob Hunter will be screening on both Saturday and Sunday evenings, as well as films by Grace Salez, Maureen Bradley, Denver Jackson, Mark Borowski and Rachel Moore to accompany stories by Susu Ma, Jennifer Ferris, Raji Basi, Janice Valdez, and Paulina Grainger.
On an entirely separate note, this is a double-exposed toned film print that I was playing around with in the summer just after Phil Hoffman’s Film Farm. It was shot on High-contrast Kodak 3378E optical print stock and hand-processed.
