From an interview for the Motorcycle Film Festival

I always try to make film more sensory by using texture, motion and focus as layers. A film shouldn’t just be just a window that you look through, but light and shadow veils that you can move through… Kind of like the difference between driving a car past a dirt field with the windows rolled up versus being on a motorcycle- then you can smell that it’s actually a strawberry patch!

Rhythm is a valuable tool. Songs are for story telling. I do a lot of in-camera editing. Having a song in my head helps me keep a sense of pace. Cutting to music in the edit room is like collaborating with an old friend!

I enjoy Super 8 for it’s graininess. It’s also a small format that is portable. You know, hidden easily if you have to throw it in your backpack and take off on your bike! A lot of additional personality comes out of the images by altering the speed, double exposing or by making adjustments in the processing.

Hand-developing can be a great tool for the right project. The great thing about film is that there are so many steps along the way during which you can add flavor to the recipe!
