Day 7: Family Home
old western (home) movies
Today's upload is something I don't think I've ever put online previously. A box of super 8 reels from a family I've never met fell into my hands some years ago. I put the stuff through my super 8 projector, and saw mostly holidays and hunting footage. Having never hunted deer myself, I found the footage pretty novel and thought I would digitize it. A month or two later, I started editing it in different ways, adding music and sound effects.
I would consider the editing for this project mostly improvisational. I didn't plan to make any kind of message. I just started pairing things together that I found interesting.
Maybe you will find it interesting. Maybe it says something about the West. Maybe it says something about family relationships in a certain era. Maybe it has no real unified meaning at all.
