I started filming Gay Pride Marches in 1978 and have filmed or videotaped every year since then. I think this was the beginning of my filming material that interested me, but was not specifically intended for a particular film. The early work was on hand-processed Super-8. In 1984, I bought a 16mm Beaulieu camera and a Cramer 16mm Film Processor. After that almost all my filming was on 16mm. In 1988, I received a grant from The Kitchen in the form of a Video-8 camera that was intended to create an oral history of ACT UP. That began a period where my formal films were made on celluloid, but my more informal work was shot on video. Since 2000 all my work has been on video. In 2007, I acquired a small, inexpensive digital still camera that shot video. I began to shoot all sorts of things that caught my eye. At first I called this my Video Diary, but that confused many people who thought that I was sitting in front of the camera and talking about my day. I switched to referring to it as my Video Sketchbook, though I continue to prefer the original designation. In the descriptions below, I’ve tried to cite everyone whose name I remember, but if I’ve missed anyone or misremembered their name, please send me the name and time code and I’ll add it. All the unedited footage is downloadable. You are welcome to screen it in classrooms, meetings or other community events. The footage can also be used it in any non-commercial film, with 2 provisos. First, that you send a link or a copy of your work to me at jim at jimhubbardfilms.com and second, that you make whatever you create from this footage freely available as well. For commercial uses, please contact me at jim at jimhubbardfilms.com. Over the coming months and years, I will be adding many, many more segments.
