I’ve just been informed by the Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival in Switzerland, 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.
