just a few months ago a short film i worked on was in the marfa film festival. the guys i made the film with and i were SO stoked to get into this festival and SO excited to attend. the festival is young but has a great personality and there are a lot of interesting films that screen there. this year, our little film was in very good company, with films from richard linklater and michel gondry in the ranks.
one thing that excited me, apart from showing our film and getting to meet other filmmakers, was getting to go out to marfa for the first time. i was especially excited to take my massive pentax 67 medium format camera out there so i could shoot some rolls of film. since working on my thesis project for my master’s degree i haven’t had too many good occasions to take road trips and shoot rolls and rolls of film.
a trip to marfa seemed the perfect opportunity and it didn’t disappoint.
these are contact prints of one of the rolls of film i shot. more images to follow in the weeks to come.
