Many of us at the Michael Rabiger Center for Documentary Film at Columbia College Chicago know grad student Chris Nelson, who used to manage the equipment cage there. Chris recently made a short experimental documentary out of found footage: old Doc Center test tapes, specifically. Here's how Chris describes it:
A nostalgia piece, made entirely from camera “test tapes” once used at the defunct equipment cage in the Michael Rabiger Documentary Center, Columbia College Chicago. Students would “test” the camera by running it for no more than a couple seconds. The piece is made mainly for those who worked there from 2004 on.
