Flicker Chapel Hill, Nov 13, 2006. Their 61st screening packed over 100 people into the Cat's Cradle. It was a beautiful coincidence that Flicker was happening the one night I was in Chapel Hill. My fav film of the evening was from Flicker Richmond - "The Peritoneal Surfaces are Smooth and Glistening" by Walker Allen.
super 8 workshop - unc chapel hill. Nov. 13. Around 25 students attended alumnus Norwood Cheek's 2 hour super 8 filmmaking workshop held in Swain Hall. "We're bringing filmmaking on film back to UNC. If you can learn to tell a story on one roll of super 8 film, that will translate into creating cohesive films on all other mediums and formats." Norwood and Kodak donated 2 super 8 cameras to the lab for students to check out. The UNC film lab now has 7 super 8 cameras for their students. Kodak also donated super 8 film to further kickstart the program. UNC also has a student run video production group - STV, that is dedicated to giving all students a chance to get experience behind and in front of the camera.

September 15-25, 2005 at the Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax, NS, CANADA - this was a great Super 8 ATTACK event. 9 local filmmakers took the challenge. It started with my super 8 workshop on Exclusive, the filmmakers worked on their original soundtracks. The screening was 9-22 at the Park Lane #4. It was a great event and the films were incredible. More proof that all you need is a roll of super 8, a camera and an idea.

|The film amounts to a story with no individual heroes, set in the post-heroic land with the masses as the main active principle. It is an atmospheric piece dealing with a gradual metamorphosis of the formidable peremptory entity of a swollen metropolis, reaching out with its mechanical industrial tentacles in every direction, expanding outwardly as well as inwardly, invading and subjugating its denizens.|
