While I’ve been overseas, I have been gathering footage, as always, for future film projects and was working on another one when I was inspired, however sadly, to put together a different one altogether. It is inspired by the recent earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, and my feelings as I watched media reports and listened to friends in Türkiye share their losses. Even though I was not in Türkiye at the time (I was not due to go until March), I feel empathy for my friends and acquaintances there, and as an artist, I can give what I can in addition to donations and words of concern. More on this film soon, but if you’d like to donate to an organization that is trying to help, please consider Ahbap here.
As a look back since I have not posted a film in a while, here is my most recent one called The Layers, which is a mix of mostly Super 8 film I shot, augmented with digital scenes and 16mm found footage. As you may know from before, this screened twice in Austin, TX, once at SXSW 2022.
Be well and stay safe, Chris
