Being natural born pattern seekers, we are forever looking for this or that clue to help explain what otherwise might appear unfathomable. Fundamentally Catalyst represents a type of diary without dates, of memories reconstructed to formulate my story. A story that takes place in time and space, shaped by the earth and sky
Merging super 8 mm footage that I filmed many years ago with some of my more recent DSLR/HDV tape footage, Catalyst investigates how each medium shaped my story as well as the gaps in time when each sequence was filmed.
Filmed on location by Kent Tate: Toronto, Ontario - Capital Reef, Utah - Nanaimo, British Columbia - Surrey, British Columbia - Regina, Saskatchewan - Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan.
