The wind still blows the dust across the exhibition grounds
The chute still creaks and moans and echoes saddle broncin' sounds
The horses all wound up the same as the ones that came before
But we don't ride 'em anymore
I shot this as a sneaky after-hours student film on 16mm short ends. I lit and shot the thing (with a schoolmate Brenden Ayah) on 16mm in a basement suite Corb rented. Corby provided 8mm rodeo material from his family archives that I transferred by videotaping off of a cement wall projection, and my future wife Jennifer edited it, on tape, sequentially, on an old deck system after hours at school. Talk about committing to a cut!
