Oregon 2017 60 mins.

 

A performance in the Whitsell by Portland band Party Killer as they create live soundtracks to Super 8 films shot for the Moving Picture Oregon event from the Northwest Filmmakers’ Summit, ten films shot as part of a Kodak sponsored Super 8 50ft challenge, and a select few student films.

Improvisation is their essence. For over a decade Party Killer has literally crafted hundreds of songs from scratch before live audiences, striving to create compositions on the fly strong enough to imply they were written beforehand. Like a Kaiju fighting mecha-MacGyver Party Killer thrills at the unknown nature of each unwritten path, exuding infectious energy and invention at ever turn.

 

Filmmakers of the Super 8 50 Ft. Challenge include: Ezekiel Brown, Josh Lunden, Cintamani Calise, Cambria Matlow, Stuart Eagon, Ian Clark, Molly Preston, Leah R. Brown, Roland Wu, Analise Smith



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
