Do you have home movies of Rangely and the region from the 1950s, 60s and 70s? The Tank Center for Sonic Arts seeks home movie footage to include in a film project exploring the history of the area and the Tank itself.
Home movie clips will become part of the resulting film to be projected on the Tank in an August event and produced for general release in the future. Selected clips will also be digitized for owners at no cost.
Of particular interest are home movies of local families, the Rangely area, oil wildcatters, and especially the Tank itself.
Filmmaker Bill Morrison, who leads the project, is known for combining rare archival material set to contemporary music. His work has been screened in theaters, cinemas, museums, galleries, and concert halls around the world. For the Tank Project, he will work with Grammy-winning guitarist/composer Bill Frisell.
Even if your old movies are in bad shape, The Tank will want to see them. Morrison’s films often include digitized and salvaged images from damaged films, giving new life to seemingly irrecoverable material.
