Memory Lapse

I’ve just been informed by the Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival in Switzerland,memory lapse scott amos that Memory Lapse has won their “Best Short Fiction” prize.

Memory Lapse is a short quasi-confessional film about my fascination with collecting other people’s 8mm home movies. I spent months peeping into the intimate moments of complete strangers, and edited them together into a narrative. MLM sketched up some line animation for it, and Mike Wolske made the music. Since it is still screening at a couple festivals, it won’t be available online anytime soon, but you can check out my podcast called “other people’s memories.” It’s snippits of the 8mm home movie footage I used (and some I didn’t) set to ambient soundtracks. Honestly, they creep some people out, but I find them fascinating.
