Films to be screened: August 1997, Greenpoint, NY. 1998, 16 mm, B&W, 8 minutes. This hand-processed film is a wistful meditation upon the obsolescence of the urban industrial landscape; their decaying and antiquated features are captured with faltering grains of silver nitrate and straying electrolytes. Tableaux Vivant. (W.I.P.). Color, 300 ft.

 

A series of portraits and vignettes shot in Oregon, with a variety of still cameras this body of work attempts to reunite motion picture film and photography long lost companions that were separated at birth. Two Films from The Big Film Series A collection of 35 mm hand processed film portraits, shot and projected using an early motion picture hand cranked camera and projector. 1083. 2003. Color, 80 ft. A Self-Portrait of me in my home sweet home. Huh. 2000. 35 mm, hand painted color, 80 ft. A portrait of a professional model, this film just barely makes it into the moving picture category.
