- Super 8
A shorthand study of the mythology of numbers, from 1 to 12. Scientific tradition is adopted then eschewed for rumours, legends and defunct theories from across the ages. This almanac of anthropomorphic numerology is recorded in-camera onto Super 8, using open exposure photography, light painting, light table animation, paper animation, hand drawn animation and more.
Aaron Zeghers is a filmmaker and musician from Winnipeg, MB. He generally works with antiquated mediums (super 8 + 16mm) and experimental processes to create experiential meditations through film. He also runs Cineflyer, Winnipeg’s premiere film, video and motion picture related arts blog, and is a founder of the Open City Cinema collective. Zeghers’ films have played in Canada (Prairie Scene, Victoria Film Fest, WNDX, The 8 Fest), the US (Arizona UFF, Austin GLFF, Strange Beauty) and Europe (Leeds Intl. Film Fest, Oblò Film Fest).
