Vancouver 1974: a Super 8 Ride

Shot with a Braun Nizo Super 8 camera mounted on a bicycle. The camera had an intervalometer so it automatically shot a frame of film every so many seconds. This is one continuous film, miraculously the film ran out just as I arrived back home.

The film uses radio checks as a sound track with meta data like the beetle count added and stills at key points from then and now. Here’s a longer edit.

I rode part of that route when I was in Vancouver, CA for the Olympics in Tweed.
