Super 8 began its history in 1965 as a user-friendly cartridge-based film format geared almost exclusively toward the home-movie filmmaker. Many have pronounced it a *dead* technology or questioned its *use* within such a digital age. Yet those that have seen its tiny flicker illuminate the walls; that vibrant glow of immaculate imperfection, understand its allure.
I choose to work with super 8 film in part to reduce the transparency of storytelling, but also because it is a tactile, somewhat unpredictable undertaking that more accurately mirrors the unfolding of experience itself. Indeed, super 8 filmmaking is a living technology.
