Curiousciousness (2012) 03:27

This short documentary asks several people (and an iPhone) for their thoughts on consciousness.

One cartridge super 8 film, no editing – for straight 8 2012

Curiouscionsess (pronunced 'cure-ee-osh-uss-ness') was shot on one cartridge of super 8 film and sent to straight 8 2012 exposed but undeveloped. This means everything was shot in order and edited in camera. The audio was edited and added to the film separately.

Selected by straight 8 for various screenings including Sheffield Doc/Fest and Cannes Lions Advertising Festival, June 2012.
