About this submission
With this short, I wanted to take the footage of a failed film festival attempt and resurrect it with editing. Originally meant for a Louisiana specific and celluloid only film competition, a friend and I conceptualized and shot a film on Super 8 during a road trip to the South. We chose to make it based on a runaway to take advantage of both the road trip and Super 8s ethereal qualities. After the film master was tragically lost, however, the project has sat abandoned. Years later I have since taken different rough edits and sewed together a final edit. Enjoy this Americana travelogue about a runaway sharing his tips as he treks across the South.
