When I was a kid my dad was a film maker. Not of the Hollyweird sort, he made educational films. I still remember one of his films being shown in my grade school and giggling when I saw myself used as an extra.
Zoom forward and I’m working on documenting obsolete technology for an art project. I’d been photographing some reels and canisters I’d acquired by digging around junk shops.
I was pretty happy with the direction the project was going when it occurred to me: … hey my dad made movies and must have some of them still! It would be more of a tie in.
So that’s my ongoing personal project, still in progress.
