We are what we remember ourselves to be

My lovely little ‘MISS PEARLMAN’ film has been asked to screen at the Au Contraire Film Festival (www.acff.ca) in Montreal, Quebec, late 2014.

A woman lives in the present through her memories of the past.
“We are what we remember ourselves to be.” Edward Casey

In the story, Mature Miss Pearlman suffers from Amnesia (Dementia) and only remembers the good old days…But then again…. don’t we all sometimes 🙂

Miss Pearlman was an opportunity to again use technology to my benefit. An homage to 1930’s films; I used various techniques to combine a matte image with live-action footage so Miss Pearlman could live in the present through her memories of the past.

Filmed in the style of 1930’s films… Historically, matte painters and film technicians have used various techniques to combine a matte-painted image with live-action footage.
A matte painting is a painted representation of a landscape, set, or distant location that allows filmmakers to create the illusion of an environment that is nonexistent in real life or would otherwise be too expensive or impossible to build or visit.
