The name Splice and Weave is inspired by analog film. Lindsay Taylor Jackson began her early film career by learning photography, developing negatives, and printing 35mm in several dark room courses. Later, she shot on 16mm. She worked with the medium of 16mm, projectors, hand manipulated film, and even cut films on the Steenbeck. When she can, she still works with actual film to this day. When an edit is made, film strips are taped together and holes for the sprockets are punched. This is called "splicing" film. "Weave" is multifaceted. In order to project the film, it is weaved through a projector. Jackson loves working with tangible materials of all sorts, often weaving physical layers together. In the end, all of these mediums come together so the voices and images captured can weave a story.
