Distance (Super 8)
Distance Super 8 Project jack will
from Jack Williams
Overall “Distance” was an extremely enjoyable film, and abstract view to film on the dying form of Super 8, and it was a personal feeling of that I had to try and give the medium justice, by not using tacky effects, but to edit it by using what I had at my disposal from filming, as im very passionate about working in an abstract form to portray an idea.
I loved working on this project although I would have liked to have worked on a bigger time frame, out one minute target was quite difficult to try and give Super 8 and my idea justice, but im happy with the outcome, Aesthetically making the montages and then watching them back is something that I like to do, and I think for a viewing of an audience it works, but because its subjective different people glance at different fames that seem more dominate to them, so each person is going to have a different experience and view on the film, although certain parts have changed due to the problems with the night time filming, and lack of light which initially it was so post to be a filming comparison of the space of the city, but because the footage was black, we used what we had, and to some extend im glad the film was black, because the effects that came from the darkness was key to when it came to overlaying, and if the project didn’t change I don’t think it would have had the same aesthetic effect.
Something I have learned from using Super 8 is that in such a short time frame you can produce some amazing contrasting visuals, and effects just from the camera you’re using, even though the camera is old, the quality is something that cannot be replicated, even down to the last second of footage when letters that are printed on the film itself when the film runs out is part of its personality, and as someone that loves abstraction I was extremely privileged to use a medium that’s near death.
