Juice

A slow motion blow-up to 35mm foregrounds the kinetic serendipity of a handhold portrait shot in 1980 and entirely edited in-camera. At the time I explored the groundbreaking portability and technical features of Super 8 to capture the wild intensity of my dog "Juice" as we played in a down and out neighbourhood in Buffalo, New York. In 2009 I treated the film as an object trouvé - without bettering its formal quirks and lags - documenting the so-called "amateur" nature of the medium and an unselfconscious phase of filmmaking practice.
