Why 8mm Film?
In a fully digitized world we've developed an appetite for instantaneous results. It's become easier to distort reality, Command "Z", copy & paste. Of course my intentions are not to villainize digital, but I appreciate a much slower and low maintenance pace when it comes video. I fell in love with the beauty of analogue film years ago and have been using it to document my personal life. Now, I have chosen to add it to my collection.
Somehow film is low pressure. I've found that it's easier and significantly less intimidating to be shot by a film camera making it easier to capture a persons character because their guard is down. Perhaps it's the humility in film that does that to a person. The grain, the slight distortion of color, the fuzzy picture and hand-held look, it literally feels like the way we remember the good old days. There is no manipulation or alteration; film just is.
