8mm Diary is a collection of personal footage that I filmed between 2011-2013. Starting the night before Snowmagedeon in Chicago (February 1, 2011) and ending as I go to work on January 3, 2013. A little slice of my favorites, designed as if you were to pick up one roll of super 8 film and watch it. Shot using 8mm app on iphone4 Music: "Si Va" by Jenifer Avila (http://jeniferavila.bandcamp.com/)
A college film circa 2003, shot when I was first learning to shoot 16mm b/w Film. Based off an assignment where we had to make an old silent film with piano. This was the first time I scripted, storyboarded, shot, directed and edited 16mm film. The editing was all done in a real cutting room, splicing the film by hand. I had a friend play piano during the screening. This was put together later, because its not easy to get a piano and a projector around in the world these days. It's cute and simple. I learned how to think about a sequence and direct to get the shots I needed. made with a little help from my friends: kyle wesling and dave dyhr
