Stardust is a celebration of the dust and scratches in film, the real ones not the fake digital effects. It is a true collage film in both image and sound, to a soundtrack made by Gerstyn Hayward – a sound-collage of snippets from mainstream cinema and TV in which there is a reference to dust or death. The images are all taken from films in my own orphan film collection, such as a reel from the NFB series "Canada at War". These particular images were used to evoke the idea that we need to fight a total take-over by digital and preserve our dying celluloid past.
Stardust got an honorable mention at the 2010 International VideoEx Festival in Zurich (Switzerland).
