Quotes from articles on Moira Joseph

from "The Films of Moira Joseph" by Steven Ball, Cantrills Filmnotes, Oct. 1993:

Her films are usually directly influenced by personal experience and relationships, while her knowledge of photographic techniques and processes inform explorations of the aesthetic and material possibilities of the film medium. Still photographs are re-animated into time and movement images, filmic material manipulated by a keen sense of purpose. Her films often achieve a synergy wherein neither subject nor process dominate but combine to produce an expressive and reflective whole.

from "Film are a Dream Come True" by Katrina McGrath, Caulfield Leader, June 2001:

This experimental filmmaker uses methods such as hand drawing on celluloid film, hand processing and scratching negatives to produce interesting images. "I use my dreams as inspiration for my work and I've been told that my films can look like stepping into someone's dreams," Joseph said. "I like to give people an amazing viewing experience -something they won't forget." Past films, including Black Monday, Black Wednesday, Black Thursday and Red Friday were inspired by demonstrations over the past 10 years. "I filmed the demonstrations and hand processed and hand colored the images," Joseph said. "There was a kaleidoscope of different groups of people and sounds and often viewers think they can recognize individuals in the films."
