Museum Happy Hour: Moving Images

A video mashup promoting Museum Happy Hour: Moving Images, a public event at the Royal BC Museum on Thursday, March 28, from 5:15 to 7:00 pm.

Explore the museum galleries and the BC Archives’ Moving Image Collection with us in new and surprising ways. Early silent experimental films from BC, some paired with live scores by local musicians, will be projected onto gallery walls through remixes & mash-ups. The evening will also include a collaborative draw-on-film animation activity that will be projected at the end of the night.

Revisit, Re-imagine, Respond!

Curated by Aimée van Drimmelen, part of the Film + Sound Series.

This mashup is based on clips from films preserved by the BC Archives—including home movies, industrial shorts, and (especially) 1940s experimental films by Dorothy and Oscar Burritt and Stanley Fox.

The music is “Marimba,” a 2005 track performed by Vate, which is used here under a Creative Commons license through the Free Music Archive.



Digital frame grabs from “and–“ (ca. 1940) by Dorothy Fowler (Burritt) and Margaret Roberts.
