Last Light of a Dying Star
(2008/rev. 2011, 26:00, 5x16mm, 1x super 8mm)
A multi-projector meditation on the mysteries of space. Originally made for an installation/ performance in a planetarium at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, GA, the film attempts to recapture some of the excitement of the early days of space exploration and the utopian aspirations of expanded cinema. Made as an orchestration of a number of different elements, both original and found: handmade cameraless film loops by Beebe and Jodie Mack; 16mm educational films about eclipses, asteroids, comets, and meteorites; and a super 8 print of the East German animated film "The Drunk Sun."
Originally made with an additional three video projections of remixes of Cassandra C. Jones's "Eventide" and "Wax and Wane." Now shown only in the all-celluloid 6-projector version.
