CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
What would a movie filmed in Jersey over a period of 50 years be like? What if the camera operators were the people who live in the Island? If the stars were their families and friends? And if the setting was the living rooms, gardens, fields and beaches of Jersey?
We want to make this film installation, and we want to make it with you. If you have a stash of Super 8 footage, make it part of Super 8 Island – a film installation featuring footage of Jersey, shot by the people of Jersey.
Fritz Stolberg is an artist who works with found footage and archive material. He’ll be coming to Jersey to gather as much footage as possible and transform it into a film installation that documents Island life over the decades. He’ll be working with Bristol-based musicians This Is The Kit to create a soundtrack to the installation, and the whole thing will culminate in a special one-off event at Branchage Festival 2011. Or so is the aim!
What will the film installation be about? That all depends on your footage. It’s an exciting and unknown quantity and Fritz will use the footage itself to guide him.
Liberate the Super 8 memories in your attics and see them become part of a document of Jersey.
