Who Can Shoot a Firefly?

Super8 • 2:25 • 2018

Light pollution, pesticides, and reduced habitat (people over-manicuring their lawns) are negatively impacting firefly populations around the country. Two summer nights in a row I cried myself to sleep thinking about having to live in a world without fireflies.

'Who Can Shoot a Firefly?' was at first conceived as a PSA to raise awareness about creating firefly habitat, but as I set out with my roll of 500T super8 film one dusky night I quickly discovered the ephemerality of both my subject matter and chosen medium.

The glow of the firefly lasts but a passing moment, the film is running and there is only a finite amount left. Edited in camera.
