I used my Super 8 camera in Wilmington, North Carolina during my Cucalorus Festival Artist Residency and hand-processed three rolls of film with the help of Andre Silva and Mariah Kramer at UNCW Film Studies. Thanks to Dan Brawley in 2014 for giving me his precious rolls of film! “Now Accepting Food Stamps” was my reaction to feeling heartbroken about the poverty and racism I was witnessing down South. With all that’s been going on in our current world climate, it feels right to share this film. https://theovercast.ca/a-sneak-peak-of-rozalind-macphails-ecma-winning-audio-visual-project

Thanks to The Overcast for selecting our meditation album, SUNSET SUNRISE as an #RPM2017 album pick: https://theovercast.ca/day-3-an-album-inspired-by-the-death-of-artist-graham-howcraft/
It seems super fitting that I would watch this sunrise of Signal Hill as I began producing/composing/recording a new album as part of the RPM Challenge. What’s the RPM Challenge you ask? It’s a challenge to write and record an entire album of original music within the shortest month of the year.
FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN will be featured at the Wilmington Female Filmmakers’ Collective – Wilmffilm Chick Flicks Festival in North Carolina! Check out the schedule: https://www.facebook.com/events/761788533971833/
“Her new album, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN, is a breath of fresh air.
