Description

This is a new 2014 HD transfer and edit of the original super8 film shot during 1998 - 1999 at home in Moncton New Brunswick. Its so nice to finally see it the way i had originally planned. I just had no way to properly edit what i envisioned back in 1999. A simpler edit was crudely video taped from a projection, shown once at an art exhibit and sold in small numbers on VHS tape in 2000, but much more detailed physical editing occurred in 2004 before it was all left untouched in a box for 10 years. Recently, all the approximately one minute long, fragile inked, scratched, and scotch tape spiced super8 films were re-projected and carefully shot in 720p from a screen. Then all put in place using the original detailed storyboard with Premiere Pro and finally properly synced to the stereo soundtrack. Rick White - songs, audio recording and mix, guitar, keyboard, voice, camera, film manipulation, film and video edit. Tara White - bass, voice, camera. Mark Gaudet - drums, camera. ...some additional camera work by Chris Flanagan and Michelle Noble. Its a far out trip but its also a nice memory document for us. This is what that part of our lives was. Hope you enjoy seeing it, i think it reflects our mindset at the time quite well and i'm very proud of it as a true psychedelic film.
