Andrew Busti has been making "handmade" films in various forms since 1999. His work revolves around the idea of the subjective and the languages that evolve through experience and perception. His current 16mm film series, titled: 26 Pulse Wrought- Film for Rewinds are films that approach cinema as projected data feeds, articulate signals, and loci of information to be seen, heard, intuited...and eventually interpreted.
He is the head of technical resources and an integral part of the new media preservation program for the Cinema Studies and Moving Image Arts Department at University of Colorado in Boulder where he teaches classes in Alternative Process and Alchemical Cinema.
He fervently works with artists, museums, and archives through the name Analogue Industries Ltd., facilitating new works, helping to preserve works regardless of classification, while always striving to support analog cinema in all its ongoing forms. He is a founding member of Process Reversal, a nonprofit artist-run analog film initiative that currently educates, informs, supports, and outfits artist-run film labs and communities around the globe. When not working long hours and helping others make films or actually making his own, he might be found singing to his 11 month old baby boy and obsessing about the reclamation and refining of silver from the photographic process for at least .999 percent of his time.
