Six diverse Lunenburg professional artists from various disciplines each created a micro-documentary on 35mm film. The initial images were captured on 35mm motion picture film. The artists then directly animated on top of the print (1440 frames of 35mm film), adding layers with hands-on animation techniques including painting, scratching, drawing and even sewing.
The artists were mentored by professional filmmaker Christopher Spencer-Lowe and professional animator Becka Barker.
The films premiered at the 2017 Lunenburg Doc Fest on Saturday, SEPT 23, 9:30pm. Artists participated in a post-screening Q&A. Then the program of films were featured as a media art instillation at Peer Gallery until October 1st.
We encourage you to read the curatorial essay written by Richard Reeves composed on the resulting work.

PICASSO HAD HIS BLUE PERIOD, I HAVE MY BLUE ROCKS
Moving back to nova Scotia in 2004, we rented a house in Blue Rocks with a view of the little sh store on a rock in Sand Cove and is an image that has appeared in many of my art quilts since.
