Part manifesto, part autobiography - Maverick is an affirmation of the power of film flicker. Captured on Super 8, the film has been entirely hand-processed as a means to develop a more tactile relationship with the medium. Experimenting with chemical and physical manipulation to achieve unique, and often unpredictable images; the films visual dialogue implies that these are not “special effects” but rather the mediums main mode of expression. Less about interpreting images and more about capturing them, the film constructs a particularly analog view of the world visible only through the mechanical eye.
This film was made with support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
