Portland Japanese Garden - A Super 8 Film

Over the last year, I decided to try super 8 as a form of creative exploration in my visual storytelling. I think what I found the most interesting was how much I had to experiment with light and the different film stocks that Kodak has to offer. As I was filming, the mechanical and tactile feel of the camera made me feel more grounded in each scene. Embracing some imperfections of this older format also gave me a great sense of letting go and just enjoying the moment.
