super extra plus is a collaborative production with Toronto-based musician Vollrath (Conan Romanyk). A playful study of the role of the extra in seventies films, super extra plus incorporates only sections without any of the actors in the selected films – Superman 1 and Superman 2.

Their overacting and charming facial expressions when removed from the storyline produce a new narrative, suggesting a rock concert or idol worship. When coupled with Vollrath’s "Superman Love Theme," the effect is overwhelmingly over the top.
super extra plus is satisfying in its outrageous combination of bland seventies street folk and the heavy metal anthem.
