My Movies

2.5 min
Designed by Rey Parla and Michael Betancourt

This movie was produced as a collaboration between the scratch film maker Rey Parla and digital movie maker Michael Betancourt. It developed from several years of discussions about collaborating on a project, and finally began when Parla sent a drive with material to Betancourt in the summer of 2011, which he then combined with some of his own material. The finished movie is a dialogue between their approaches and techniques, combining scratch, glitch, analog processing and digital compositing to create a hybrid.
