I have been meaning to upload this for ages. I gave my son, Casper, a super 8 camera - a Canon AF 310 XL and some film - a roll of Tri-X. We went out to a popular walking area - a pathway along the lakeside where they have put up fun objects that are linked to the Great Lake Monster - a Swedish cousin of Nessie.
Casper filmed what he wanted, when he wanted - he held the camera all the time! He filmed just over a minute of footage whilst we were there - and this is what you see here. Once I had had the film transferred we watched it back to together and I recorded his spontaneous responses to what he was watching. Now he was only 3 years old at the time and he is growing up to be bilingual, so it is a mixture of Swedish and English with some spoonerisms of new words he has learnt. I have added some text to show what he is saying.
You might think that a super 8 film made by a 3 year old would be horrible to watch, but I disagree!
Make your own mind up!
