Revival is a short 16mm experimental film about isolation, risk and rescue. The film is derived from super 8 films I found while thrift store shopping in Montreal. Watching them I was most drawn to the images of helicopters and the barren landscapes. I reprinted the imagery using various darkroom techniques and hand processed the results. Throughout the process I found myself surprised with the results time and time again, which motivated me to experiment even further. Revival is the first film where I took creative control over the audio as well, and had great fun exploring in this new realm.
