MICRODOCS / DOCUMENTATION / MOVING IMAGE

*Video coming soon.

These video enquiries as a whole reflect an effort to make films in a democratic, non-hierarchical way that diverges from traditional filmmaking practices. A move away from clearly defined roles is implemented in order to give a sense of ownership to the individuals involved in each film’s creation, including participants. In this conception of filmmaking, dialogue, questions, relationships and new experiences are favoured over premeditated storylines and imagery. By treating moving images as a working space rather than a finished product, the process of capturing, layering, and re-capturing images becomes a path of discovery and a point of entry for all involved, empowering creators, viewers, and participants to explore ideas that extend beyond a film’s creation and consumption.
