Flicker NYC, the ongoing screening series for all things super 8 (and 16mm) is having it’s annual Attack of the Fifty Foot Reels! on Sunday April 18. The difference between this show and your tyical indie film screening series is that all of the films have been shot in camera on one roll of super 8 film that is then turned into Flicker Master of Ceremonies David Teague for processing. The fun part begins at the screening, as the filmmakers will be seeing their projects for the first time with a live audience! Me and Jeff participated in the fun last year with our short, The Venice of Brooklyn. We could say that the film went off without a hitch and that the large hair smack dab in the middle of the frame was part of our well-crafted meditation on the murky depths of the body of water that seperates Park Slope and Red Hook, but have decided to remain uncharacteristically silent on the subject.
Attack of the Fifty Foot Reels! Sunday April 18, 2004, 7pm, $7, The Knitting Factory, 74 Leonard Street, NYC
We may (or may not) be participating this year, based on whether either of us come up with an idea by this weekend.
