Down Under

This is a film that I made with a group of friends for the Straight 8 competiton. We filmed it on a reel of super-8 film (old fashioned cine film), which we then sent off to be developed by the organisers. The film only goes through the camera one way: no retakes, no editing except when the camera starts and stops. We did the soundtrack separately, without having the film to synchronise with. The first time we saw the film, or heard how the soundtrack married up, was at a public screening at the Curzon Mayfair cinema in London.
