Matt Carter plans on bringing the Charlotte Street Arts Centre to life through the sounds that can be heard from inside.
“I would like to present the building as a living, breathing structure through a unique video concept.”
Carter is the winner of the Seeing Charlotte video contest and has been awarded $600 and a New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative membership for his project that will show off the sights and sounds of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre. The project will help celebrate the Centre’s tenth anniversary in May.
“It’s a great opportunity. The Charlotte Street Arts Centre is a really important part for arts culture in Fredericton and is a hub for countless activities, events and teaching programs.”
Carter has a relationship with the building that goes back to when he was a student studying in the building at night. He had a studio and taught drumming and also did percussion for dance classes in the Centre.
Carter has held on to that relationship since and is familiar with the sounds he’ll be working with.
“Friends of mine are involved in an Irish dance group. It’s clumping and clanking, that’s all you can hear in there. There’s foot steps walking through the hall that gives quiet intimate haunting sounds, and dancing, various kinds of dance that go on there represent the sounds of feet and the energy that it brings.”
Because of his experience with editing and producing sound, Carter is excited to be working with the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative throughout process.
“I might set up some mics first and get a good sound recording of the space. Once I get a sound structure together, I can pick the brains of the people at the film co-op to guide me along the way.”
