Promo copy: "For its seventh incarnation, Cellular Cinema welcomes prolific local filmmaker Trevor Adams, who will project his work on 16mm with the live accompaniment of sound artist Mike Hallenbeck.
"Trevor works in the folk art/ first-person tradition, repurposing found and salvaged footage, which he alters and distresses with chemicals, markers, pens and pinks.
"Mike is a sound designer and composer whose work spans film, animation, games, branding and the performing arts. See his work at juniorbirdman.com."
We're still working out the details-- but I can say for sure that this will be a unique opportunity to see Trevor's work projected from an actual film reel in all its analog glory, without any digital transfer nonsense, and that my sound work will be a unique mix not to be repeated or even documented in any way. Some pieces will be presented with their original scores intact and unaltered, some I'll augment with my own interventions, and some will have entirely new scores/ soundtracks. Trevor may or may not provide live on-mic commentary.
At least that's the plan for now-- who knows what'll happen on the night. Make a reservation, come on down and find out!
