“I was obsessed with filming everything with this Super 8 for a while, partly because hiding behind the camera allowed me to go places I might not have been comfortable going, especially when I first moved to New York, and people always want to talk to you when you have a weird old camera. One day I abandoned it and moved on to something else, and I think I’ll wait at least five or ten years to develop the finished roll of film in there. Super 8 looks and feels like time that is so long past, and eventually when you look at it that will be the case.”
