By 1998, the
Chaplin film was complete and I was arranging its first screenings.
There was a second batch of Chinese supr 8 mm, and then, following
Triskill Design's first job in Osaka, Japanese Super 8 mm. This
material was shaped into another video for 'Recount', a remix of
Rowland track by Envoy, on D1 Recordings.
These videos started to get good circulation
with the emergence of festivals like 'Darklight',
which began in 1999, organized by 'Sink',
digital media, based in Dublin.
In the second batch of Super 8 mm I switched
the film stock that I used, using daylight film under neon night
lights and using tungsten film under strong sunlight ( Shanghai
in the summer ).
Some of the stock was also out of date, 10
years past its expiry date, so the resulting colours when processed
were unpredictable but turned out to be very effective.
