An experimental film about a young girl that discovers the beauty of filmmaking. This was shot entirely on Kodak Super 8 Vision-3 500T & 50D. This shows the range of Super 8 film the power it can convey with modern filmmaking technique.
With the current state of American independent cinema, experimental cinema disappearing into an academic medium, the decline of low and middle-class filmmakers and films, how digital filmmaking is eroding away a sense of excitement with cinematography, how women and minority filmmakers are virtually never portrayed as such; I did this to remind us how important film is an art form and ideas that go against the grain are just a future that hasn’t come into focus yet.
