"8 Flick" is part of a new experimental series of short and rather raw films created using vintage Super 8 film cameras. The film clips, transferred to digital files are then edited and enhanced with sound added.
I love the quality of film shot on super 8 film stock and am further intrigued with seeing how far this already great grainy and glitchy imagery can be pushed electronically. Pairing this imagery with electronically created music feels like a natural match!! Sound is by B-Complex (aka Matus Lenicky from Bratislava, Slovakia.) The track is " Black Eternity". Check out B-Complex on last.fm at last.fm/music/B-Complex
Your feedback is welcome-please let me know what you feel or think about this work! Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!! - David

I just HAVE to share one of my all-time favorite rock performances...
the visuals are spectacular and I, please share your opinion, think that
the guitar work of Pink Floyd is some of the best EVER! I feel that all
that we experience and love influences what we create as artists and I
can certainly see some of the influence from these times on my film work
today in this spectacular "light-show". There are other clips of this song on
You Tube by the great "cover band" Australian Pink Floyd, that include
fantastic film clips and stills projected in a circle with the pyrotechnics
Perhaps the fact that I travelled doing light-shows and experimental
"happenings"performances during the mid 1960's and got to see the then
famous "Pablo" light-show (who, incidentally, I had partied with in Zihuatenejo,
Mexico earlier that year) that supplied the visuals for Buddy Miles
and the Electric Flag at The Fillmore East in NYC in 1967 that sewed
the subliminal seeds for what I am producing now in my films...
well....ok...maybe it was the subliminal "sin semilla"!
Here is my latest project. It is a selection of three shorts; CLONE, REAKTOR and THREAT
with music by Berlin based Hanne Adam of adamned-age and features an original electronic piece
accompanying THREAT that I composed.
FLASH-FILMS was selected by the Oak Cliff Film Festival Dallas,TX 2012, Atlanta Shortsfest 2012 and it received the Award of Merit from The Indie Fest in La Jolla, CA 2012. So, we are on our way!
Can't wait to see where we screen next!
Hope you enjoy it!
