Sight Unseen – The Sound We See

Sight Unseen and The SNF Parkway are thrilled to welcome Paolo Davanzo and Lisa Marr of the Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles to Baltimore for a special collaborative program.


The Sound We See: A Baltimore City Symphony invites students to create an analog film over an intensive one-week period with support and mentorship from Paolo and Lisa. Working collaboratively, participating students will learn about the city symphony genre, examining the joys and challenges of the urban environment while exploring techniques for filming with vintage Super 8 cameras and developing black and white film stock. Together, they will produce a 24-minute film that envisions a spring day in the life of Baltimore, starting at the moment many residents wake up, building into the bustle of the work day, and moving into the vibrant folds of the night.
