Personal Profile

Tony Lawrence

I am a film artist based in Sydney, Australia.
For a decade I have been creating a film archive consisting of 8mm, 9.5mm and 16mm home movies, news reels and stock footage. The collection now has over 400 films. From these I create new film works. Predetermined themes or ideas informed by the images are edited together then I compose a soundtrack utilizing piano and synthesizer.
Various transfer techniques and the affects of age and decay on some of these films are used to convey different moods.
My film 'Holiday' is the first of a trilogy that I have shot on Super 8 film. Utilizing a mechanical effects unit that I designed and built.
