I gave clear film leader and art supplies to a group of friends and family who had never worked with 16mm before. My only instruction: do whatever you want.
Each microfilm was then paired with an excerpted song from a Free Music Archive artist, many of whom are friends and former collaborators as well.
These are the weird, wild, and wondrous results.
