Super 8 Blog, Room to Dream, 02.02.2016: “At the last line, the frame fills with bright yellow – the film is fogged, a side effect of the hand processing – then, when the fogged frames pass, the image is only partially restored: the last several feet are underdeveloped; blackness obscures the edge of the image before enveloping the entire frame. These inconsistencies in the development enforce the sentiment of the verse. The image, like the moment, is lost. Had this conceit been attempted digitally, it would have seemed contrived.”
